Zinc Pennies - Still the Unwanted US Coin

You count them things in your yearly coin count????moody smiley
LOL well, Remfire I'll tell you what Monte tells me when I find those darn things..." remember you can count that memorial penny towards your yearly total coin count" smiling smiley


I count those AND the silver war nickels. grinning smiley

Unfortunately, those Zinc pennies are getting to became far and away the most common find I make when hunting public areas if I decide to pick them up. Seems that most of the older coins are gone including older clad and the copper pennies. It takes some extra effort on my part to find spots still holding better finds.

To boot, in my area, there is quite a bit of competition for places to hunt that become available. It is nice to run into other detectorists, but you have to be on your toes around here. I suspect as we continue to move forward year by year, our ranks will thin out like the coins and those that continue will be the hard core.

Just some random thoughts.

Roger, both the detector coil choices you made are good.
