Was another fun outing.

June 17, 2019 03:16PM avatar
Wow !! Can't believe that outing # 11 is in the books. I have been lucky to make everyone except #10 ( just not into urban coin hunting smiling smiley

As always this outing was just as fun and was great to get to see some folks again. I planned it to just take that whole week off so I headed down earlier to do some scouting around and check on some site conditions. Unforntantly a lot of the sites were weeded up this year.

Cobre and Metropolis were pretty good. Toano was bad but still huntable with Tecoma and Shafter out of commission.

When it was all said and done I managed to get a few good keepers. I did find a 2 1/2 cent token in Tobar and that was my favorite find for the outing. It is "Royal Liquor Co." and is a Salt Lake Token.

I also managed two wheat pennies, 1953 & 58 from "Newtown" a 1875 IH Penny from Toano, an 1889 V Nickle (worn thin from Cobre)

a tag with the #5 and Anchor from Cobre a Dick Tracy Detective club Badge ( Cobre) and lots of other doodads.

Lastly, I did find one other coin with the help of Rich. I was detecting around a large 2' x 3' clump of saw grass and got a faint signal. So I started to stomp the grass down so I could get my coil in there and over the target. ( Racer 2 w/ NEL Snake). Once I got my coil over the target the machine overloaded and was obvious ist was prob a can etc. So I continued to stomp more grass down and approx 6" away I get a nice high tone but big big vdi numbers, 96 etc. Rich was close by so told him I have another target, sounds good, but big vdi numbers. I said its prob a tin lid or something. Si I continued on working the grass and got another signal about 8 inches away from the one with big VDI numbers. This one came in around a quarter.

I then got on my knees to dig this one which turned out to be a nice round coin size piece of rusted tin. In the meantime, Rich came over and was investigating the other target with the big VDI numbers. He said it sounded awfully good but he too was getting some big numbers. I said, "hell, its prob just an old tin lid." My thoughts were after overloading on the first target and then digging the quarter reading to only get tin, I figured this one was junk as well, but we might as well dig it as wonder.

So after a few minutes of analyzing, Rich took his shovel and went to the left of the target then the right of the target and then plunged the shovel in the center and started to pry it up. ( At this point I was still on my knees watching but didn't see the plug start coming outta the ground.)

LoL, all the sudden ( and I never hear Rich cuss, that's Oregongregg's job) he yells "Holy &^%*" ( he later told me as he was prying the plug up, about half way thru the motion this big round coin shaped disc bubbled up in the middle of the plug.) Well when he yelled that out, that got my attention. He then grabbed it and then held it out and dropped it in my hand. Both of us for a brief moment thought we snagged a seated half.

You couldn't see the coin, only a crusted up round disc shape. I started to slowly wipe the coin and after a few moments, the word " cents" appears on the coin. Well, I immediately knew then what it was and showed Rich, we snagged us a 1851 Large Cent......and the darn thing had four holes punched in it. But it sure was an exciting moment. I told Rich since he helped me find it I would give him half, so when I got home I would throw it in the band saw and chop it in half and send him half.

Rich suggested that wouldn't be a good idea, so we decided on a joint custody arrangement. For one year I get to keep the coin in my binder, then he gets it for a year etc etc. smiling smiley

The machines I used:

Red Racer/ Snake coil: The Wheat Pennies, 2 1/2 Token, Fob with #5 and Anchor, 1875 IH Penny and Chevy Emblem.

Racer 2/Snake coil 1851 Large Cent

Fors CoRe / OOR coil: 1889 V nickel, Dick Tracy badge.

All in all, it was another fun outing and hated to see it come to a close.
