    couple weekends ago

    I got invited to a field hunt that had been pounded already but some nice silver Spanish had come out of it before. I wasnít expecting to find anything but I gave it a whirl. Change the settings on my machine to an open screen and sensitivity to maximum. Very quiet except for the constant grunting of iron, while searching an area everyone had been over and over before. holes were everywhere, from what I suspect were square nails and miscellaneous iron being pulled out when I got my ears blown out. I thought I had some canned slaw but that didnít really make sense considering how free of trash this field was. instead I pulled out a nice looking 1854 large cent! about an hour later I got a solid wheat penny signal and out popped a beautiful 1867 two cent piece! I was hoping for silver but that was it and Iím not complaining! A friend of mine had pulled an 1838 seated dime just the day before. Almost forgot to mention the button. And the Indian came from the day before.

    Thanks. Everyone had been through that spot the day before, pulling out all kinds of buttons. Everybody moved out of there to the area where the seated dime came out the day before. I thought it was can slaw or brass the signal was so powerful!

    Amazing finds, Tim! Are you sure the Two Cent Piece is 1867? I kind of looks like 1868 to me, but maybe I'm looking at it wrong. Either way it's a terrific find. Large Cents produce such a strong signal. It is always a blast to find one.

    Lifetime totals:
    8 Large Cents, 389 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 9 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 122 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 384 Mercury Dimes, 237 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 85 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves
