Silver number 25

7 May

Yesterday at lunch, Maurice (aka Zoltar) and I met lawdog1 from the Wheat State Treasure Hunters group at Riverside park. We hunted for an hour with little to show and I had to return to work but lawdog1 stayed to explore the spot a little more.

Later, I got a text from him with the picture of a beautiful 1903 Indian Head. Along with this picture, there was a picture of the exact spot where he found the Indian with the words ‘X marks the spot’ or something like it. I jokingly replied that I would stop after work and find the old silver he missed.

Well, I did stop at the X after work and I pulled this:



A nice 1940 Merc at only 4 inches down. The audio signal was as sweet as they come but the VDI was 88, which at 12KHz on the Deus, it usually means a Memorial cent. Let that be a lesson for all of those who don’t dig penny signals!



This makes silver number 25 for the year. I am still behind 15 silvers. I need to be at least at 40 by the end of May to catch up. Wish me luck.

Thank you for looking!

    Better start looking over your shoulder…I’m only behind by 25 silvers for the month! Just kidding, good job!

        Hey, if you don’t mind, I’d like to try out your exact settings. I’d be happy to drive to wherever you are sometime this week. I promise to avoid trying to get to any of your spots šŸ™‚

    No problem David, I sent you a PM on the forum.

    I know where I can find you for a few days during lunch. šŸ™‚

    Nice Mercury.

    I was thinking, the day a City park gives me a silver is the day preceding your first seated. Something to ponder.
