Monte's 'found/recovered' coins to end 2017.

December 28, 2017 10:31AM avatar
Well, I guess it pays to do some serious cleaning, even if it was about 14° outside when I was cleaning out my Chevy Tahoe. As I mentioned last time, I have (but am now getting rid of) a lot of those dark orangeish pill bottles that I keep my coins and smaller-size keepers in. I usually had one, or two, in my finds pouch and would rotate them when full or filling for an empty and put the bottle with coins in the recovery gear tote or set them by the tote or ice chest.

I had some in there, somewhere, that rolled around or were in with 'stuff' that I needed to get out to tally up for September's results. I also had some I was working on filling from stops I made from Bend to Sisters and over to the western side of Oregon before deer season when we were scouting and camping and such.

When we got back from our hunting trip, but before I could get to all the bottles and my finds pouch to round up all the coins, my mother had a severe heart attack and we quickly loaded up suitcases and made the 400 mile drive to the Portland area. That's when, on the night of our arrival and me spending the night in my mom's hospital room, my Tahoe was broken into and all my detectors, two detector bags of coils and accessories, headphones, suit case, emergency first aid response kit, loose new jackets and much moiré was stolen.

My medicine bottles were not where I had seen them last and I presumed they, too, were taken. angry smiley Well, a small Christmas gift I hid behind my gear tote wasn't in sight so I started moving things around in my Tahoe. I found what was missing, and even more.

I was in Portland and it was raining and I had a broken window so I immediately got the glass company to take care of it, and vacuum up all the broken glass that seemed to be everywhere ... to include on and under the back seat. There were other things that ended up there as well, some orangey pill bottles that got bagged and moved out of the way to vacuum all the broken glass.

I needed to get my gear tote out so I could put my new White's DigMaster hand-digger and new Signature Supreme finds pouch on the belt and had a couple of surprises. Under my gear belt, knee pads and other stuff in the tote was one of the medicine bottles with coins. There were still a few coins in the pouch, but behind the tote, near where the Christmas gift hid from me, was a plastic bag and medicine bottles of found coins that I had presumed had been stolen. The rummaging thieves had knocked them under the seat or out of sight, and the broken glass clean-up crew bagged them back behind my tote!

So, now I can add the coins from all the end-of-September detecting I did, from Bend, Redmond, Sisters and over toward Salem on the other side of the mountains, plus what opportunities I have had since then, to wrap up my tally for 2017. My initial goal had been to hit the 5.000 coin mark, but I changed that up to only 2500 since I live here in little old Vale and spend more time Relic Hunting. Then I got mad at myself by late summer and started working harder on my Coin Hunting whenever I could in September and then some since the theft.

So, my catch-up Coins from September, October, November and December, other than my last report, are listed here. My 2017 Annual Coin Count Goal was achieved, and I've now decided to pan on a 5,000 coin goal for 2018. Anyway, here's my year end results:

September to end of December 2017 update:

$1 ... 0
50¢ . 0
25¢ . 235
10¢ . 326
... 200
... 1105 (4 Wheat-back)
Total Additional Coins: 1866 for September thru December

Annual Coins to End 2017: 3043 including:
$1.... 6
50¢.. 1
25¢.. 373
10¢.. 501
.... 281
... 1881

One thing for sure, I still don't like Pennies as they made up 61.8% of my total coin finds this year. They used to average around 55% to 58% but so many places have seen less use by folks carrying very much pocket change. I do envy the folks in Canada and Australia and other places where $1 and $2 coins have replaced paper money. Would be great to see the US of A do that.

Okay, this year's over and I will be making a fresh start, and get out as often as possible, to reach my 2018 Annual Coin Count Goal as soon as possible. All the best to everyone else and I do hope more people will participate in the coming year. We will be doing things a little differently to involve everyone from every where, USA and FORIEGN countries.
