I don't search for new coins nor do i count them... for any reason... did that for a bout a minute 30 years ago... now i just want old. but to each their own.


I'm relating Cindy. Hunting and Tallying newer coins is quite foreign for me. Since very early on I found my niche hunting the yards of old homes. I kept a record sheet for each residence which included the home owner, a hand drawn map of the house/yard and locations where the old coins, tokens and notable finds were found. Dates of keepers coins were listed as were descriptions of trade tokens and jewelry. Newer coins are of little interest and are dumped in an old jar to be cleaned up and put back in circulation.

It's been a lot of fun over the many years I've been doing this to meet new people and talk about the history of their home and then have a chance to hunt it and see what can be found. A couple years ago I was knocking doors in an historic area of town. I meet an elderly lady who's family had moved into the old home I was hoping to hunt on the day Charles Lindbergh landed in Paris, May 21, 1927. We chatted for a bit and permission was granted to hunt. I turned up some old coins, a great trade token and a 1927 Wheatie. Before leaving, I stopped and thanked her for allowing me to hunt and left her with that wheat cent as a thank you. She was delighted.

There are many more interesting stories as you can imagine and the finds from private yards, in general, are much better than I'd get by hunting parks and such that are frequented by so many other detectorists.

Hunting older yards is still my primary interest but I decided last year I need to branch out more. The greatest generation is starting to pass on and many of these homes are being purchased by the younger folks that have been less inclined to grant permission to hunt. I'm having to adapt a bit and change methods.

That said, I also want to support Monte's effort here hoping to pick up some new skills and learn something along the way.

I'm looking forward to seeing more of YOUR posts and pictures as we move into the fall season. I'm hoping I can offer something worthwhile to this site above my VERY MEAGER coinshooting finds thus far.

Best of luck out there.
