2 coins and some cool stuff

Recommended Posts

nugget108    507

Hi all,

The boys and a friend of mine headed out to do a night hunt last night. No gold AGAIN but we did find a sweet coin and relic spot I've been researching. Cameron my oldest found the first coin of the night and his first coin for some time now. It's a 1867 Shield Nickel in pretty good shape. Then I ended up finding the 1876 Seated Quarter and a Chinese coin. The quarter is in really good shape but the pics don't show it real well. We also found some awesome buttons. My little guy found the big button with the hog on it. He started laughing histericly when he seen what it was. Apparently 8 year olds find a pig on a button funny lol. Other than that, I found my first skeleton key and first intact pocket watch frame. It still opens too. And a realy cool gold gilded feather or leaf that i hit with my pick and broke. My buddy found a really cool mini hammer and what looks to be a mini flathead screwdriver. And several buttons. It was a long but fun night. Take care everyone. 

Dan

Thanks Luke, I've had such a long skunk streak on gold it's crazy. I was happy after this hunt. The kids had a blast.

Thanks Terry. I've been doing a little research on it but couldn't really find a match online.

Congrats on the finds. Nice ones at that. I was finding all kinds of coins and relics when I was in that area years ago. Keep hunting. Maybe you'll find your first gold coin or perhaps even a small cache. Just never know....

I was using my 5000 because we have relics and gold where we go. My oldest boy uses a Fisher F5 and my little guy uses a Bounty hunter Jr.

My dad gave him the F5 summer before last and he is finally starting you use it this year. Hes getting it figured out pretty good. He wants a CTX3030 SO BAD. I told him thats a lot of lawns to mow over the summer haha.Thanks Swamp, I always enjoy your input.
