    Third Bucketlister of the Year!

    I met up with a fellow detectorists yesterday almost 3 hours south of me for a hunt. We found a street tear out in town while driving around. I was detecting in front of a very old church where the sidewalks were torn out and already replaced. I was detecting the sidewalls of the cut along the sidewalk when i got a 14-15 signal on the Nox. I was expecting anything special. Thats when I first layed eyes on my very first 3 coin!! And it's the nickel variety!! Now I need one of the silver ones!

    Thanks for lookin!! HH!!

    1868 3 Nickel

    Thanks Tony! Yeah, 14-15? That in the "half of a pulltab" range as far as target ID goes. But in places like that, that's why we dig everything right!

    Yeah, when I first seen it in the dirt i thought maybe a token or a knock out of some sort. But when i wiped the dirt off and see lady liberty facing left i knew right away what it was. I was like...

    Thanks Jared! Yeah, if this was a deep scrathy signal in a trashy park, it would probably still be buried there!
