Jimbola - 2017 Annual Coin Total

February 01, 2017 11:25PM
I live in SW Portland and started Metal Detecting in Feb 2016. Attended some of the meetings at the beginning of 2016 and got good direction on learning this hobby. I had purchased a MXT Pro on Craigslist, used 5 times, for several hundreds of dollars cheaper than retail. Over the course of the year (112 outings), I calculated in the area of 300 hours of learning the machine and hunting techniques.

2016 brought a total of 1700 coins. Midway through Dec I saw I had a chance to get to 1700 coins. On Dec 31 I needed 23 to reach it. The fun memory will be that the 1700th coin I found was a shiny new 2016 quarter. Cracked me up! I stopped hunting instantly at 1700 for 2016.

Now that I've learned hunting in parks and schools, I am ready to advance to hunting older properties this year and hopefully bringing on the "Silver". Oh yeah……

So, for 2017, my target is 1700 coins with the stipulation that there will only be only 222 pennies. "FANTASY!". I know. Reality check. But hey, it's a goal….

Roger, don't let your 1¢ percentages bother you.
