Detecting an Old Property

Recommended Posts

Yesterday Dean and I headed out to hunt a historic property that he was able to get permission for us to detect. This area was first established around the end of the 19th century and serviced gold miners, cattle ranchers, and railroad workers for many years. It was a relatively small area and the grass/weeds were overgrown making it hard to get the coil near the ground, but we managed to pull some interesting targets. I was running the Minelab CTX 3030 and Dean the Nokta Relic. My best find of the day was a 1944 Mercury dime. I also found a 1935 & 49 Wheat cent plus a cool little Arizona Tax Token. Unfortunately no gold coins, but we had a blast. Below are some of the finds…All in all it was a great day to be out swinging in the fresh air with a good friend :)

Fun day, Chris! We met some nice folks and some other folks wanted to meet us B) . Perfect weather.

Chris made off with all of the period goodies. I managed a bunch of coins from the early sixties but no silver. Fun times!! Thanks Chris!

Hi Terry,

 

I agree with you. The weeds were terrible and we know there are more goodies hiding beneath. Who knows how much depth were were losing because of it. I'll post the results once we hit it again.

Nice coin. A while back I was considering buying one of the gold centennial Mercury dimes, but they're pretty proud of them. Truly a thing of beauty though.
