More diatribe

4 Dec

I hunted for a short time today at the site where I’ve been finding old coins. I’m still perfecting the Money Making Protocol (MMP) with the trusty XP Deus.

So, if you don’t know already, I believe there are still thousands of silver coins in our city parks but they are either too deep or masked. The MMP is designed to find me the former and it didn’t disappoint this morning.

After digging a couple of very deep iron I got a signal within the parameters of the protocol. As per the protocol, I dug a 4-5 inch hole. If this was a small piece of foil, this is where I would find it. There was nothing in the plug nor in the hole. I then dug the hole further to the 9 inch level (the pinpointer is 9 inches long and it’s very handy for this step). If this was a coin, it would be in the dirt or in the hole. I explored the dirt that I dug up and found nothing. I then put the pinpointer in the hole and got a weak ding. I cleaned the hole and pinpointed again and the target was a bit off center but at the bottom. At this point, I expected to find deep iron and dug a couple of inches more of dirt. I applied the pinpointer to the new excavated dirt and got a nice solid bang. Still expecting iron I was pleasantly surprised to see this:

1912

Yep, this puppy was down about 10 inches. Now, there is only moderate wear on it so I think it was dropped near the date of minting.

1912 Barber, Philadelphia mint.

I am very excited for the possibilities. I know there are more Seated coins in that park and I aim to get me at least one.

Thank you for looking!
