Site Selection and Researching

In this episode I look at a property that has caught my attention for several months. Using Google Earth and the resources I mentioned in my previous post I figured out the history of the property. I give just a few clues as to what originally caught my attention. Hope you find it useful and enjoyable.

Honest Abe, The Feds, and Lady Liberty

Well this weekend I was down and out with a serious sinus infection. I was supposed to attend an MSF class on Saturday which I missed due to me feeling like a zombie. Today I was feeling much better and the family got out and took some photos. Mid afternoon I met up with PulltabMiner and we hunted for a couple hours. The first location we hunted I found 4 wheat pennies and the lovely lady liberty. We switched locations. Hindsight being 20/20 we should have stayed at location #1. We detected for about an hour and neither one of us dug a coin. I did manage to find a couple old shotshell heads. One of them was a Federal Cartridge and the other was a Federal Monark. From what I can tell the Monark was used between the 1920’s and 1940’s. All in all it was a good day!

Happy Hunting!
