Catching up

Well I have been meaning to post for a few days but I have been to busy. Anyways my detecting time hasn’t been huge but when I got out the hunt was worth it. Miner and I drove into Northern Oklahoma on Sunday and hunted with a friend who’s family farm is down there. We started our hunt on a chilly morning with the North wind not letting up. The first site was an old school house that was surrounded by plowed farmland. I was swinging the Ace250 with the 5×8 coil (not intentionally, I had forgotten my bigger coil in the truck).. The hunt started slow until our host found 3 pennies which I believe were all wheat cents. My first finds were bullets and miscellaneous garbage. The first solid coin signal I got I dug.. Kind of. My trusty little Ace told me there was a coin at two inches. It was close to being honest as the coin was on the surface. I cleaned it enough to tell it was a 1901 Indian Head cent.

After we finished at the school we went looking for a homestead that had long been gone. It didn’t take us long to find the old yard among the stubble and I found a wheat cent.

Monday night I decided to clean out the pouch and found another item that I had put in the trash side of the pouch. I’m glad I looked through it again. This is a pretty cool relic once you read the full story of the expo here.

  1. ……..or, shop towels!

    It was fun and we didn’t even scratch the surface. The IPE thing is cool, especially with it being numbered and having a specific booth on the back. Found some pretty cool relics the next day too.
