First Wheat Pennies

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.

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.


About Ozarks

I enjoy Metal Detecting in The Ozark Mountains and surrounding areas where I primarily detect for relics and coins. I enjoy learning new techniques and metal detecting equipment and doing product reviews.
