Okay, I was at a park, but it was a fun day! I’ve had the 4 inch sniper coil on my Fisher F2 lately. Normally I use the 8 inch coil, but since I have been hunting in more trashy areas I decided to give the sniper coil a chance.
I went to a park that I’ve hunted several times, but this time I decided to hit a section that I don’t normally hunt. Usually I only find clad in this park, but I have found a couple of rings there in the past. Oh, and that .925 bracelet that I found awhile back. Anyway, I wasn’t finding much, just the usual coin here and there and can slaw. You know, pieces of aluminum cans that the lawn mowers have chewed up and spit out.
I got a nice signal, and thought that I might be about to dig a quarter when out popped this coin. At first i got excited because it didn’t look like any coin I have ever seen.
I guess there’s a reason it didn’t look like any coin I had ever seen, because it was a token from a local Pizza Place and Fun City for kids.
Oh well, it was a neat find either way, and it ended up being my best find of the day. It’s always neat finding tokens and some can be more rare than coins, depending on what they are.
Later I went to an old homestead that I have permission to hunt. It was getting dark, so I didn’t have much time to detect.
I did find a couple of neat finds, this buckle and a few squeeze box reeds. The round thing looks like the bezel of an old pocket watch to me, although I can’t prove it. What really surprised me at the old homestead is that the only coin I found there is from the 2000’s. I couldn’t believe it…lol
All in all it was a fun day detecting, and this coming weekend it’s back to my honeyhole. Can’t wait!
Happy Hunting Ya’ll
