One last oldie before the new year.

I decided to do one last ditch effort to get something good before the end of the year, so I went out detecting to my families property, as it has been a fabulous site this year. I was running the Makro Racer at 3 tone with a discrim at 10 with the 10x5 eclipse coil. It’s been nice as it gets a good depth while being able to navigate trash. I went very very slow for about 2 hours and dug a lot of iron out trying to find some hidden high tones. It paid off as I managed to squeeze out a 1919 wheatie. Not amazing but it’s the first coin to come out of there in 6 months. I found it funny as it’s one day off from 100 years on the dot! They haven’t plowed the fields this year sadly, (was plowed fall 2017) but this year 2019 it should be, hopefully. Until then I will probably not detect as hard as I have in the past.

As for 2018, it was an amazing year! My favorite and most notable finds are:
1871 two cent piece, semi key date.
1891 seated dime
1903 barber quarter (first silver!)
1909-s wheat cent, semi key date
US great coat button

I found a total of 6 silvers this year, only 2 Indians, dozens of wheats, and over 350 clad coins, the majority of which are pennies. I didn’t hunt too many modern places, as I truly like relics more than anything new. I hope to find some better permissions this year, but 2018 will be tough to beat. My only goal for next year is dig a coin older than 1871!
Happy new years and good luck everybody

You definitely had a successful year, Jadon, in many ways.
