    No Buffalo Nickels but a Neat Token

    Hey Diggers,
    Went out for an hour after work yesterday. Got permission to hunt a VERY small yard at an old house. The area was probably 20 feet by 30 feet and very mineralized. It was a rental house in a rundown part of town. Modern coins every foot or so (dug 27!). I did manage some deeper targets (4 to 5 inches) but with my auto-sensitivity hanging around 16 that was probably as deep as I could get. The Johnnie Walker Red token is a "schedule coin" and it looks like they only made them 1971, 72, & 73 for all the NFL teams. I'm not sure how you got one but there are dozens of them for sale on eBay. Thanks for looking and HH, Dave.

    P.S. The token gave off a HUGE signal. I thought for sure I had a silver dollar! LOL.

    Ah...the Jim Hart era for the Cardinals. Remember that poor guy getting sacked so many times on so many mediocre teams that I was sure he was nuts for sticking around for so long. Good set of finds though and the token is a nice find.
