Buff day

December 07, 2020 12:45AM avatar
On Tuesday a friend went out near where I found the quarters last Sunday and found a Marksmanship medal. I couldn’t go so I went today, even though it was only 40° and threatening some form of precipitation.

Not many signals out here so I was using my 11” original coil and the “Deep” program. Not anything exciting, a few non-metal buttons, a couple of loaded 32 Winchester cartridges that were deep. Then I got a mid range signal that bounced around so I dug it mostly out of curiosity. About 4” deep was a pretty nice 1935 Buffalo nickel. It was in the vicinity of some civilian oil cans and an old juniper stump so I’m guessing woodcutters instead of military. Earlier in the year I found a 1942 Merc about 100 feet from this spot. I attributed that one to the military but now I’m not sure.

I’ll give a go at cleaning it some and maybe post another picture but there is quite a bit of detail on it.

So far this spot has given up 17 pre-1944 coins. You can bet I’ll be back if there is another “warm” day!
