A 'back-road' trip to a 'bad-ground' location .... again?

Rich, is that the same direction you traveled to find that Trade Token that would-have-been really good if it wasn't so destroyed? I'm trying to figure out just how far you travelled and in which direction to encounter the challenging ground environment.thinking

There are several old places off to the west from you a good pace, towards the 'Twin Flats' area where you found that CC Seated Liberty Dime on our outing long ago, that sometimes ruined keepers. Matter of fact, 'Twin Flats' itself surrendered hundreds of old coins to me and from certain areas of that townsite they were terrible-looking specimens. Most I could clean and restore to some degree, but long durations of a wetted salt environment left even the silvers pitted and/or with a build-up on them.

Sections of the site, where a lot of burned-up coal as well as discarded iron and ???, also degraded some of the coins. Also, away from the salt-mix ground at that location and off to the north, across the border, there were a few small towns that also had ugly-money very often due to whatever was in the ground make-up. Yet only a short drive apart was another small town or other place of interest where target recoveries were in beautiful condition. So, the puzzle pieces continue as you mention where you're hunting and maybe one of these days I'll figure out where you're going. winking smiley

At least you got out, had 'fun' and made a successful time of it. Thanks, again, for posting your make/model and settings used. I appreciate that kind of information.
