23 Jan

Today is a bitterly cold day. Needless to say I won’t be hunting. Yesterday, it was a different story; sunny, warm, perfect. I know I said that I was going to use my lunch hour to walk instead of hunting but yesterday I was in good spirits. Steve and I are undertaking a super-secret project and it is well on its way. It promises riches and definitely, it promises good times. So, in my excitement, I decided to hit the old trashy park. The old trashy park is very large and it has many areas I have not explored properly. I decided to go to such an area and was having a really good time cleaning up the beaver-tail pulltabs when I got a mixed trashy signal. If you don’t know by now, I dig these all day long. I dig them especially when the high tone component is somewhat sweet.

I dug my hole and the first thing that came out was a piece of can slaw. No surprise there. I should have taken a picture of it. Anyway, before I covered the hole I stuck my Garret pinpointer into the hole once more and I got another strong hit. I reached in with my gloved hand and voila! this is what I saw:


I always get excited when I see a worn coin in the hole because it makes me hopeful for a Seated.

Alas, no less of a cool coin but a Seated it was not. I had in my hand a well-worn 1928 Mercury dime. Silver always lifts my spirits and this day it made me even happier. Needless to say, this spot will get worked over pretty well.


I won’t be posting about the super-secret project for a long while but if you see me walking down the street grinning like a fool, it won’t be because I am crazy!

Thank you for looking!
