I think your 'V' ratio is a clear reflection of ghost town hunting. Not too many inhabitants post 1912 in the old ghost towns. I was super jealous of Gregg's nice 1913 buff from last years hunt. It was really in nice shape and lots of detail!


I went back thru my binder, and actually had more Buffs than I thought I had. But like Monte, hunting mainly ghost towns puts my V nickel count greater than my Buffs. Mainly the only few Buffs I did have came from Rippsville or Lonesome Arch as it lasted into that era. When we started hitting the POW Camp and Cow Hollow park, that helped increase my Buffalo count a bit.

Surprisingly, most of my better condition Buffaloes came out of Lonesome Arch. I remember finding that 1913 and I think I even commented on my post back then that it was prob the nicest one I have found. A lot of areas around those 3 sites are pretty gentle on coins.

Anyhow, since my official start date of June 15th, 2013, I have 18 V nickels to 8 Buffalo Nickels.

Getting to hear Monte's stories from the early days of detecting, his Shield Nickel Count, if I remember right, was well above his V and Buffs. I have only found 2 shields, one in horrible cond and one in pretty decent shape.

A little sidenote for Zincoln,also another negitive effect of only hunting the ghost towns, I have 2 more Barber Quarters than i do Buffalo Nickels.....I might have to slip to Bobs for that occasional BloodyMary and see if I can thwart a few of these darn neg. side effects........smileys with diet Dr. Pepper float

When ya get over this way in April, that will be our quest, to find ( you find) a Barber Quarter.......... To Be Continued smiling smiley
