Well it's a trick that's 128 years old and it worked for a second. A racketeer nickel tumbling out of the dirt in the hole sure does look like a $5 gold piece! I Got back from traveling Sunday afternoon and needed some time moving around after being in the car so long. So I headed to the park to see what I could find. I hit a messy patch of signals and started to sort them out. First was a memorial cent, then a wheat. Next up was the fooler of the day, the gold plated 1883 nickel and lastly a clad quarter. Definitely an interesting assortment of signals from one small area. I also managed a few wheats and an Indian from another small area... 1906, 1919, 1929, 1935-D.
