Sunday morning silver

7 Apr

I got up today before everyone else and hit my deep silver park with my Deus metal detector. I started as I always do by finding wheat cents. I don’t know why there are so many wheats cents in this park. The earliest one I found today was a 1919.

Eventually, I moved to a spot where I have found close to 30 wheats this year alone and got an iron signal. Since I have found a number of pocket knives at this spot as well, I decided to dig it. Instead of a pocket knife, I found what looks to be a bracelet made of iron. Interesting.

Towards the very end of my two hour hunt I got a sweet signal and a VDI that screamed wheat cent. I found no wheat at the bottom of that 6 inch hole though!

I just LOVE to see that silver edge in the clump! This is only my second Merc of the year.

I ended up with 5 wheats, two clad dimes and other stuff. For a second, I thought the tiny pendant was silver as it has hardly any corrosion but it is not silver.

I hope I can find silver every day in April. Ha ha keep wishing.

Thank you for looking!

    Good job buddy. You’re going to put the roosters out of business! Who needs Mercs when you’re digging Barbers? We’ll have lunch and talk about it.
