Nice handful of old coins from a new spot

Recommended Posts

My buddy Dean and I headed out this week to go explore some new country. It’s still too hot down in the desert to look for gold, so we went scouting for some coin & relic spots. Our hiking paid off when we stumbled onto the remains of an old rock house hidden in a canyon. The house looked to be from the late 1800’s, but based on the mixture of trash, it was apparent that it may have been inhabited up unto the 1940s. 

There was a ton of metallic junk everywhere, so it was really slow going. I picked my way through what seemed like hundreds of targets, until a nice high tone caught my attention. It ended up being a silver dime; our first coin of the day! After that the goodies started to come a little quicker. Unfortunately by 1:00 the clouds rolled in and the rain started to fall. We finished off the morning with: two silver Rosie’s, a couple of Wheat cents, a Buffalo nickel, and a beautiful 1945 Mercury dime. I was swinging the Minelab CTX 3030, and he used the Deus. It was a fun spot that should hopefully produce a few more good finds in the future. Happy hunting everyone - enjoy the weekend! :)

What a fun day! Nothing beats finding new ground that is productive. I'm excited to get back there as we really didn't spend much time swinging this first time through. Still more exploring to be done in the area.

Thanks again, Chris! Fun times as always!!

Dean
