Trash Density

April 09, 2019 11:06PM avatar

A couple years ago, I was out at one of the WTHO's in Nevada gathering my equipment near my truck to begin hunting. As I turned on my MXT and started walking to my area to hunt, I got a signal from the detector. Looking down, I saw the outline of something round in the dirt. I picked it up and found it was the brass end to a shotgun shell. I flipped it over and had to look twice as there was a penny inside. A little shaking revealed a wheat penny from the 50's had become stuck inside. Looking down at the ground, I saw a bunch of other round trash and realized I was standing over the spot somebody dumped out the unwanted contents to their finds pouch, Too bad it wasn't a Seated dime or an IHC.

I Wonder if they ever figured out where that Wheat cent went to? Just as a note, I have separate pockets for trash and keepers to avoid throwing away goodies mixed in with trash.

j.t., trying to figure out different detectors is difficult because there is no 'norm' in how we define 'trash.'
