Wichita Intra-Mural

28 Jan

Today, I met lawdog1 from the Friendly Metal Detecting Forum at a local park for a lunch-hour hunt. In the interest of public relations, we decided not to use our shovels to dig in this park. Unfortunately, the dirt there was tricky and hard to dig in. Or maybe I am a spoiled wimp who cannot dig a hole anymore without his shovel.

At any rate, the park has lots and lots of iron and so I was in signal heaven but unable to dig a hole deeper than five inches. Eventually I hit a signal that was in the six inch range and I was able to extract it





I am surprised I didn’t break the pin off as I often do with this things. There is no year anywhere on the pin but it looks old. I need to research it a little more. The park opened in 1920 but I am sure it was used by people before then.

I wish I could carry my shovel at this park without fearing a mob uprising. I am sure there are some old cool coins mixed with all that deep rusty iron.

Thank you for looking!

    That is a cool pin! Don’t worry about using your shovel in that park. Everyone I have ever met in that park has been super nice.

    I wouldn’t go as far as a wimp, but you are definitely spoiled. I’m sure your wife would agree. 🙂

    Cool pin!
