    Last hunt of the year and recap.

    I managed to get out on Dec. 28th for a few hours. I can’t remember the last time I hunted this late in the year. I hunted a farm field that had a old one room school house on it. I managed to find 3 coins, a 1885 Indian, a 1919 Buffalo and a 1920 wheat. I also found a cuff link with some fancy and gold gilding. attached is a video of the hunt along with a year end wrap up.

    my totals for 2019 were:
    $31.75 in clad
    4 gold rings
    6 Silver rings and one silver jewelry ball.
    38 silver coins (3 Washington quarters, 3 Barber dimes, 16 Mercury dimes 12 Rosevelt dimes and 4 War nickels)
    113 wheats pennies
    11 Indians pennies
    8 Buffalos nickels
    7 V Liberty Head nickels

    I’m actually working on my 3rd binder, 2 are full and yes, they are heavy. Here is a photo of the 4 gold rings I found in 2019. The one in the hand was a recovery for a farmer.
