I am in quite a slump, having hunted all week without finding a single silver coin.
Tuesday and Wednesday at the same site that gave up 2 silvers last Friday, which I thought had the potential to be a monster site, simply dudded. Someone better than me had cleaned it out.
Thursday was at an old park in a new town (for me, anyway), that likewise seemed hunted out. Problem was the bedrock was very shallow, meaning coins could not sink, meaning no advantage for my big unit and E-Trac. I did find an abused Indian head there (which I don’t get excited about), and there is likely a couple silvers there if I had more patience, I just don’t.
Today (Friday), was a hunt at a church from the 1740s I got permission to hunt. The churchyard was totally hunted out, not a single high tone to be had anywhere, and I gave it a good three hours. There is alot more to this story (as those who may have read the pre-edited version know), but that’s that.
In the field behind the church, I did find a liberty cap half cent, my first ever of this type of coin. Its totally abused. You can make out that it is a liberty cap half cent in person, tho I could not get a photo that shows it really. Too bad it isn’t in passable condition; it would be quite a find for me, and something to feel good about during this silver slump.
