Fors CoRe and Lone Tree

September 26, 2017 07:12PM avatar
Had a quiet day before the storm (corn ) starts. Loaded the dogs up and we headed off to Lone Tree. This time I decided to use the Fors CoRe and the new 5 x 9.5" coil that Nokta just put out. I was really pleased with the coil, it handled some of the dense iron areas very well. It will make a nice addition to the Fors CoRe coil arsenal. It won't replace my OOR coil but will be a very nice coil to get coverage in the less trash areas and when it does encounter lots of iron/trash it still does a nice job.

When all was said and done I did manage to finally get myself a shield nickel. The only other one I have found is in terrible shape. This one came out blackish etc, but it wasn't the welded on Crust type like some of my nickels that have come out of the ground. So I am letting it soak awhile in soapy water in hopes that I can just get it wiped clean......before I resort to throwing it in the rock tumbler. It looks to have fairly good detail. It was "holed" and the hole is right thru the date, but it does end in 7. Looking at the coin book it was pretty easy to date. It is a 1867 Type 1 ( I didn't realize there were two types) because it has the lines or rays with the stars. Type 2 is stars only.

So that was a nice surprise to pop that outta the ground. Also found a few Henrys shell casings and other doo dads. I will try to get a pic posted in a few days if it cleans up pretty decent.

Pic #1 Lone Tree on a nice balmy 70 degree day......was nice.
Pic #2 Money shot
Pic #3 With the Fors CoRe
Pic#4 I wiped it a bit with my fingers and could get some better detail when I got back to the truck to eat a sandwich.
