A rewarding hunt

10 May

Met up with friends today to hunt an old park. We hunted for 6 hours and although the morning started cool and cloudy, the sun eventually came out and the day turned into a beautiful Spring day.

For my part, I dug up two silver Roosevelt dimes and two Indian Head cents. The silvers were shallow, both at about 4 inches deep but the Indians were much deeper at around 8 inches. Try as I may, I could not find the Seated coin I went looking for.

Nonetheless, I LOVE seeing the silver coins when they first come out of the ground. I particularly love to see the edge of a silver coin sticking out of a dirt ball.

For now, my first Seated coin is still in the ground; somewhere.

Thank you for looking!

    …and I know where.

    Cool finds. What were the years?

      The silvers were 1956 and 1964. The Indians were 1904 and 1905.

      The park was in Peabody Kansas. I still think we need to grid the spot you’re talking about though
