I want to talk about the Grrrrr factor of detecting. I have been hunting a site lately that is just frustrating. This particular site was a homestead between 1915 and 1995. For eighty years it was lived in by 3 different families. It should produce silver coins right.. Well I have detected this site for a total of about 8 hours over the last month. I have dug maybe 10 coins and none of them are older than a 1969 memorial penny. I have dug all kinds of home, garage, and farm items there. I have talked to a gentleman who lived in the home as a kid in the 1940’s and he helped me locate the yard. It is an interesting site because all items regardless of size and shape are at 5-6″. Since 1995 the land has been owned by a church and they use it for outdoor services and other events. So how much time do you invest in a site that should produce silver but doesn’t? I can tell you that I’m about to throw in the Lesche!
Happy hunting and thanks for reading.
