I got the chance to detect in a park in a neighboring town recently. I was pretty sure that this park hasn’t ever been hunted, and definitely not hunted out. I hunted around a pavilion that appears to be built on an even older foundation. I found more than my share of tabs, foil, can slaw, and clad coins also.
1935 D, 1940 D, 1944 D, 1944 S
The coins were between 4 and 6 inches deep. I didn’t know that I had found wheaties while I was there hunting because I don’t like to rub the coins. Based on the year ranges, I think that there is a good chance of finding silver coins in that area! I’ll have to go back and search the area a little more thoroughly next time.
