My Favorite Finds of 2019

December 20, 2019 02:57PM avatar
It's December 20th, still 11 days left for a quick check of a few spots that might not be frozen solid. Not sure I'll have time.

I had a short list a targets I was dedicated to find this year; a barber half, seated quarter, half-dime and gold coin. I did not find any of them. Efforts in finding these did turn up some other good finds though.

This Years (2019) highlights for me:

1. Early season silver and trade tokens from a location Sid and I have been hunting for decades. Locals hit it hard as well. Difficult targets. Some good finds.

2. An 1866 Shield Nickel w/rays. 1st year nickel on a hunt with Oregon Gregg and Zincoln. Fun trip.

3. WTHO - Wells. An 1904 IHC, 1854 & 1883 Seated Dimes.

4. 1936 Oregon Chauffeurs badge.

5. Late season water hunt turns up several rings including a 14k gold and .950 palladium.

I feel pretty good about 2019 despite not finding any of the 4 items on my 'hit' list.

My consolation prize is that my efforts in hunting the types of places we frequent for the WTHO's are improving as I gain experience.

My thanks to OregonGregg, Monte, Utah1971, Zincoln, Kickindirt, Sid, and everybody that posts here on the forum for sharing tips, hunt sites and equipment and hanging out in those places we've had all this fun.

I have been broadening my areas of interest to include places more likely to hold lost jewelry.
