The best WTHO outing ever......................

June 06, 2020 06:53PM avatar
Had a great time down in the Wells, NV. area. Met some new people as well as seeing some familiar faces. As always it was a great time, the weather was nice this time around ( a little hot at times). Was a bummer Monte had to leave a few days early and miss out on some of the action sad smiley

When it was all said and done I made ( for me) a couple of bucket listers. I have always wanted to find a token from Nevada that says Nevada on it and as you know, I have been chasing that elusive 12 1/2 cent token forever. Guess if your gonna do it, might as well kill two birds with one stone as they say. ( I did contact Zincoln and apologized for the rant when he sniped that 12 1/2 cent token 2-3 weeks ago in Rippville smiling smiley In fact, I managed to get 2 tokens on this trip and they are my two favorite finds for the outing, with the 12 1/2 right at the top of the list.

I spent a day in Tobar and was the only find I made that day. The detector Gods must have felt sorry for poor ol' OregonGregg after the anguish of watching Monte snag that really nice Jordan Valley 12 1/2 token and just recently watching Zincoln get the Moore Hotel 12 1/2 token. Was kinda funny. I want to say I mounted an expedition to go after a 12 1/2 token but didn't work that way.

I parked, put the water out for the dogs, grabbed my machine, and ground balanced it. Walked over to a nasty spot with trash, cans, etc. Then Ray( Silverhound) walked over and we chatted for several minutes. Ray started to walk away, I put the coil on the ground and made it approx a couple of feet, got a nice high tone, and out comes this dirt-encrusted nickel size object. Well shows how dumb ol' OregonGregg is, a token just did not enter my mind. Finding a token in Tobar is pretty tough......so I'm thinking why the heck is this nickel coming in with a high tone????

Silverhound was only 20 feet away, he came back and I handed him the new found object. He started peeling back the dirt and he exposed a 12 1/2. Boy was I pretty happy. At that point it could say anything, the important thing was it had "12 1/2" on it. Well, it only got better. Silverhound started peeling off some of the crust from the other side. At first he thought it was a Utah token and he worked on it some more. He then looked up at me grinning and said I see "vada" on it, which could only mean it had " Nevada" spelled on it. Boy at that point I was on cloud 9. I like to try and clean a token while still letting it look old, but that encrusted calcium stuff is darn near impossible to get off. There was only one thing I could do and that was to give it a good bath in the special toilet bowl cleaner. I was very pleased with how it cleaned up, except now it looks very new.

My 2nd favorite find of the trip was a Maverick Token I found in Cobre. Monte consulted his friend in Utah that is a token collector and he said that it originated from Wells, NV. It is " Bong Tong" with a large "5" on the back side. Kinda a strange but neat token.

Also to come out of Cobre was a 1917 Merc, a 1916 Barber dime, 1904 V nickel, and two wheat pennies 1936 & 55.

In Toano, I got a pretty rough shape Shield Nickel ( no date) and a rough, very worn thin 1845 seated dime and a nice Eagle button.

Also all the usual ghost town doodads.

This trip I only used one machine and one coil, the Fors CoRe with the 4.7" x 5.2" (oor) coil.

It was a great trip and was fun to meet up with everyone again.

A big thanks to Andrew for the really neat T-shirts he made up for the 12th WTHO outing.
