I hope everyone here had a wonderful Fourth of July holiday weekend! It was so hot down in the desert I decided to head for the higher elevation to do some detecting with my Minelab CTX 3030. Years ago while hiking out of a canyon I spotted a place where it looked like someone may have had a small campsite. There weren’t many clues, only a couple rusty cans and a few bits of scattered broken glass, so it definitely wasn’t a permanent camp.  Because it was such a tight area it didn’t take long to hunt out.  I came up with a collection of nails, two harmonica reeds, and the best find was this 1902 Liberty Nickel. Often called V nickels, these coins were minted from 1883-1912 and are about 75% copper…I hope all of you are out there swinging and staying safe - happy hunting! :)
