The Key To Finding Old Coins

18 Dec

The key to finding old coins is to go to a place that has them. Really.

I returned to the old coin park. I hunted in the same general area and the very first deep target was my first and only Indian cent of the year.


A couple of pieces of deep rusted iron later, I hit upon this key


I have found a few of this very same kind of key before at other old parks. This company must have been a very popular place to buy keys back in the day. I am not sure how old this key may be; I am thinking maybe 30’s.

Anyway, the rest of the hunt produced only rusted iron and a number of very small pieces of aluminum foil from picnics of days of old.

I tell you, I am not afraid of telling the world about this since I know the kind of discipline and focus that it takes to hunt deep whispers. As long as I continue to pull the occasional  old coin from my excavations I will continue.

By the way, if you do decide to look for deep signals in the park, please use a dirt towel or some other way to hold the dirt. It is hard to put a deep hole back together and the towel will help.

I am going to try to take advantage of this super mild Winter courtesy of El Niño (I think) and hunt more before the year is up.

Thank you for stopping by.

    That park sounds like one I used to hunt back in New Jersey. Everyone had given up on it but I could always go there and come home with a good find. And you stated the secret…..listen for the “whispers”. They won’t show in the visual readout because they are too deep, but they are well worth the time and effort to dig. Have fun, and Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, whatever floats your boat.

      Thank you lawdog1. I feel there is a huge untapped potential still left at our trashy parks. Thousands of silver coins I believe, are still left but masked and deep. I just want a Seated and a gold coin that’s all.

        I feel you are correct and don’t we all! I’ll give you a call next week sometime.
