Nice looking coins. I'm not into park hunting much anymore but did go out last weekend and found a 1936 nickel and 1919 penny.

Thanks Andrew, The coins are in pretty nice shape and except for the nickel, weren't very deep. Just mixed in with a bunch of trash / masked.

As for park hunting: The last few years I've spent above average time at mostly 1 older park that was on my way to work. Time was spent getting to know my 800.

In general, the older parks in the Salt Lake Valley are hard hunted and 'lower' producers'. But I have to give them credit as pretty good laboratories for experimenting with a new detector and/or settings and checking them in areas I'm familiar with.

Ghost towns and old military encampments are certainly much more interesting and more likely to provide finds from those eras.
