Afternoon hunt with Monte.

August 28, 2017 07:57PM avatar
Met up with Monte at the ol'park we went to on the 4th day of the last WTHO outing. This time around I used the good ol' Fors CoRe machine with the new 5 x9.5" open frame coil. As it turns out, it is a very nice coil and offers great separation.

Pic #1 My new coil for the Fors CoRe

Pic # 2 I found Monte's little belt buckle that he lost years ago when he was "Little Monte"

Pic # 3 Found this item dated 1949..........something else happened in 1949....trying to recall, can't quite put my thumb on it ??

Pic # 4 & 5 Well I went and broke the Nickel & Copper Rule....she's ugly......but she is silver. Snagged a Merc dime that appears to have went thru several fires. It's in the rock tumbler as I type this. Hopefully will clean up enough to get a date.

Pic # 6 A find that Monte made with the Impact and New 7" Concentric Coil. I forgot to ask what frequency he had the machine in to find this item.

Make a quick edit here....I was actually lucky to get the dime. I showed Monte where I found it and LOL as it turns out we were there a few days ago and it was HOT. So Monte and I stayed within the shadows that the trees cast. As it turns out he was hunting that area and came within a few feet....but lucky ( or unlucky depending on who ya talk to) the coin that day was a few feet out in the sun and not in the shadows. Otherwise, he prob. would have easily found it.

Quick Edit #2
Pic # 7 Took dime out and its starting to clean up. The date is 1924.
