Half & half

I posted some of this last Sunday but my post disappeared, no explanation, just poof! So I apologize for the rerun to those who saw it and commented.

I realize our finds are relatively new, but we are thankful for any silver. Since spring several of us have been hunting an area where the Army held maneuvers in 1943. We have been progressing along a line we believe is a Red on Blue skirmish and have traveled about five miles from our spring starting point. Many interesting relics and more older coins than I have ever found anywhere else. Last Wednesday I was very close to my silver coin goal for the year, but my buddy was finding all the coins, a Walking Liberty and two Washington quarters. Finally, late in the day I got a Walker myself, saving me from a skunk on coins. I found a few relics, including 5 period coke bottles. I love finding them because it means I’m the first person to walk there in 78 years. If others have been there they either pick them up or break them.

Friday we returned to the same area and it was my day for coins and relics. Three mess kit knives, tent peg, cans with readable writing, a 1903 stripper clip, M-1 clip, an unusual pair of dog tags, the format is different as the first name is listed first. Also, a quarter and a dime, each 1943, and 5 wheat pennies including a steel penny. Close to my goal, but not quite.

Tuesday we returned and my buddy found another half, a 1916s. That makes 4 Walkers and a Barber from this area over the summer. I found a tiny gold on silver Marine globe and anchor, not sure what it was for. Also the thing that looks kind of like a bobby pin has been identified as a collar stay. And 5 Merc dimes, pushed me over my goal for the year! I found two in the last 20 minutes of the day. Thank you zincoln for the soft challenge, it motivated me to get out there often.

My buddy is using a Nox, and I was using my Deus; Wednesday, the original 11” coil and a custom program by Grant Hansen based on the “Deep” program, Friday I switched to the elliptical coil and tweaked the program with some Gary Blackwell influence, Tuesday was again the elliptical coil but used Gary Blackwell’s “Sonar” program, based on the “Hot” program.
