Re: Dirt & Grass ... Metal Detectors .. Blue Tarps. = The rise and fall of carnival site production.

Monte thank you for the historical outlook on the early days of metal detecting and some reasons why the silver may not be there like we want. After talking to several of my class mates that were very close to the fair. Their family’s were very big into the horse racing community. The one gentleman by the nick name of Bum was there every day taking care of the trotting horses. Bum said after the fair had ended he would hunt for coins that were lost. This would be his walking around money. One of the reasons that I am not finding much silver and the place being called hunted out. It was hunted out by Bum and a few other young friends by eyeball. My current count is at 180 plus. Still only four silver dimes but am hopeful for more. Hunt slowly and carefully good things are there to be found.

Yes, many places are thinned-out. But sometimes it pays to 'know the right person.'
