Exploring the Potato State

April 30, 2018 07:07AM avatar
Zincoln ( Brian W.) came up the weekend before the outing so we decided to go hit some spots why over in southern Idaho for the first part of the week.

Monte, Brian and I headed way down into southern Oregon then jumped across to Idaho over in Owyhee County. I was using theFors CoRe and wasn't long got a good signal. I dug a little dirt out and out rolls a silver coin.....I was excited...until I wiped it off and seen it was a 1962 Silver Rosie.....I'm like what the heck lol , but I remembered deer/bird hunters use the site for camping thru the years. But hey it was silver and I'll take it.

Later in the day, I was using the Red Racer with 7" Concentric coil working the rusted tin littered area of the site and did manage to finally squeak out a pretty decent signal. I dug the target and it was also a silver dime, but this time a little more exciting. After gently wiping it off I could tell it was a well worn seated dime. I didn't have the cheater glasses, so I walked over to Monte and Brian as they were hunting close to each other in another area of the site. They each took a look and it turns out I just found my oldest coin yet, a 1840 seated dime. She is worn pretty well but I'll take her. Monte and Brian each made a nice find.....in fact they each found the exact same type of item. I would almost give up my 1840 coin to get one. I hope one of them post a pic of it smiling smiley

We did the weekend at that site and a few others in that area and that was all we managed to get.

I then took Brian to the local CCC site to try his luck and out to one of our permission sites and I managed a few more finds, getting a 1907 IH penny and 5 cent trade token ( forgot to get a pic after I cleaned them). Also, we loaded up the bikes for a day and just explored around had a little fun with the 4 Wheelers.

Finally, Thursday arrived and the official WTHO #7 started.........................to be continued.................
