So much dirt, so little time

20 Sep

After I tweaked my Deus once again, I decided to go over some of the old sites I’ve covered before. At lunch time, I went to some empty lots that the school district bought for future expansions. The area goes back to the turn of the century so finding old coins is possible there. These lots have and continue to be hunted regularly by others in the city but this, as we all know, means very little.

It wasn’t very long before I got a mixed signal. It was a real mess, but, to the discerning ear, the highs in the signal had that something that told me to investigate. Sure enough, along with a nail and an blob of rusted iron, I found a nice 1919 Merc in the hole:

Merc-in-situ

I will have to hit these lots heavily next week.

Thank you for looking!
