Thought the 1947 dime I found today was silver #50 for the year, but upon counting found that it was actually #51. Number 50 was a rough looking 1953 dime. Still hitting the same old parks and schools and the E-Trac manages to squeak out a few more. No doubt it is tougher this year, and much less like last year when I was shooting fish in a barrel. Still hoping for seated this year, I need to get into some older dirt.
There was one at the park and one at the school today. Got out with Suzanne and got our arms sore swinging detectors and not doing much digging. I got the 1936 dime early on and then just a few wheats and clad. We decided to pack it in for the day and I was driving away when I thought of the school. So, I called her up and we headed over there. Just a few minutes in I got the 1941 dime and then Suzanne dug a crazy silver pin. Kids started to show up to play on the field so we moved off to the sides and I was getting deep clad Then she calls me over and says, "look at this" and I'm staring at a Walking Liberty half. I look and say that's cool, blah blah blah, and then she says, "yeah, but what *is* it" So a little more explaining about her great "big silver" we kept at it for a bit but not much else turned up so we headed out. I stopped off at another little street park on my way home and harvested a few more wheats before calling it a day.
Met up with Suzanne for a bit this afternoon at an old school site we were at before. Picked up some wheats but targets were sparse. She took off and I gave it a few more minutes. Of course that's when I hit some deeeeeep targets. A 1900 Indian head, with a V nickel (well worn, but maybe a 1904?) in the same hole. Then a few steps away, an old green wheatie at similar depth and then another Indian... 1896! Kept going and picked up a few more "newer" wheats and then I hit the road. Not a bad finish for the day.
