What once was somewhat common seems to be tough to find these days.

What am I talking about? - - - - - INDIAN HEAD CENTS !! - - - - -

Back in the earlier days of recreational metal detecting, before we had specific categories of interest such as Beach Hunting, Coin Hunting, Jewelry Hunting, Relic Hunting, etc., everyone who got started simply enjoyed "Metal Detecting" and most anywhere you went you had a good chance of finding an Indian Head Cent, be it a city park, a yard, a vacant lot, or out-of-the-way locations.

As time passed Indian Head's, and most of the older era coins, have been getting thinned down due to all the recoveries made, but the past 2-5 years I've really noticed a drop in my annual Indian Head count. I'm curious if it's just me and the limited locations I have to hunt where I live now, so I'll ask everyone:

If you have been detecting for over 5 years, how many Indian Head Cents do you think you used to 'average' a year?

How many Indian Head cents did you find' in 2018 and how many so far this year?

Maybe it's been do to health limitations I've had to deal with the last few years that has cut in on my detecting time and select-target success? Just curious how everyone else has been doing with those early period Indian Heads?

Thanks,

Monte
