Ok, update on the date.smiling smiley-----Patsy got the Shield nickel cleaned up & we discovered someone had made a hole clear through it.-----It was so scroungy when it was found that we couldn't tell about the hole.----Unfortunately they made the hole below the shield where the date was stamped thus destroying the date #'s.-----Anyway, according to my Yeomans book the Shield nickels with rays were minted only in 1866 & 1867.---The Shield nickels with stars were minted from 1868 through 1883.----This Shield nickel is the "stars" variety-----So all I can tell you is the fact that this Shield nickel was minted in the 1868-1883 time frame.----The holed/destroyed date is a let down---but we're still going to keep it!!smiling smiley-----I've only found one other Shield nickel in my detecting career----found a lot of "V"s (Liberty Heads) but only two Shields.---------Del

It is kind of handy having those three old gold mining era townsites within a reasonable distance. I found my oldest coin at 'Lone Tree' with a Relic & 5" DD coil, and that was the 1853 Large Cent in April of '17. 'Lonesome Arch' that sits between the other two had the longest and most active life and, certainly, has the most potential to have desired 'keepers,' but it also is the brushiest and most debris-filled of them as well.

I prefer the more open terrain of 'Lone Tree' but my personal favorite of them is 'Lost.' I'll have to give you a call sometime and figure out what particular chunk of that location you sere hunting.

Sorry to hear about the flat tire you had. Was that from making the drive down into the heart of 'Lost' or did you stay up closer to Mormon Basin Road?

The year isn't over yet and more pleasant weather should be here for a month or two before winter so perhaps you can make another adventurous trip over that way? If so, let us know.

Monte

PS: Waiting to hear what the Shield Nickel date is.
