    Last Saturday I left early with my detector to get some time in before the ground gets too hard. So far, the weather has been mild in Michigan.

  3. "New" park is performing better than expected

    I have started hunting a park in town that I have never detected. It used to have a school on the land which was torn down sometime in the early 90's and then turned into a green space for the...

    Indian Head Cents

    This has been a question of mine for a long time. Most IHP are the same size standard and composition as the vast majority of wheat cents yet a metal detector identifies they with a considerable...

    Sweet find! Don't write off the possibility of older coins in the Midwest! Lots of trade and movement was happening when these coins were being minted! Definitely hit that site hard!

    Got out yesterday for about 4 hours and hit a close local park hoping for some jewelry but ended up having a fun day digging clad coins. This is a fairly "young" park, although I do dig an...
