Today over the lunch break I was hunting at an old elementary school in Wichita. I found a few old surface coins that were nothing special. Then it happened, a good solid coin signal at 6″ deep. I dug my plug which was a full 6″ blades worth. Nothing.. So I dug another inch and then the sweet belltone was in my plug. I pinpointed around and I was shocked to find an 1890 queen Victoria farthing. Someone has used it as a necklace but I still think it is pretty cool. My mind instantly started thinking about the mint that made the coin. How did it get to Wichita? How long ago was it dropped? The 30’s? 40’s? Who knows! So far this is my oldest coin and this find solidifies my obsession!
