Then, in the afternoon…

6 Jan

…I went to Riverside park with my Deus metal detector for an hour before the sun went down. I went to the spot I have been hunting consistently for a year and a half. I have seen scores of people detecting this spot. I myself have dug up many wheats, buffaloes, and Indians from here. Still, no matter what, there seems to be an inexhaustible supply of cool stuff still buried here.

Case in point is this really cool 1897 V nickel. It gave a pulltab signal that I decided to dig because it was deep and in this park I dig all signals four inches deep or deeper.


It is my first old nickel of the year and my first V nickel of the year. I put a big scratch on it and I was so mad about it that I came home and immediately ordered a shovel. This will be my third shovel and hopefully the last. I have taken measures to avoid loosing this one.

Anyway I love V nickels. I found my very first one ever last year. I hope to find many more this year.

Thank you for looking!

    You should tie it to a cord around your neck! I need a good shovel. Maybe I should follow you around? 🙂

    Congrats on your “V”. Looks like a sister to my 1896 dug on the last Sunday of 2012….without the scratch, of course. 🙂
