Back to the fields of dreams, while it lasts (same site as yesterday), and pulled an 1820 largie pretty much straightaway. A bit later on, a rosie, and when you are in old fields giving up copper after copper, when you get a silver dime signal, you hope it is a bit better than a rosie. Tough to be disappointed on a silver coin, but I was on this one.
But keep gridding on and on and on, and eventually we got one baby!. A badly worn 1840 seated dime! It was an iffy signal, as it turns out due to the fact it is on the thin side Then not 10 feet on, a slam dunk silver dime signal, and I say please be a bust or another seated, and there is was, a rather nice 1876 seated dime, and my first ever silver coin in the dead zone (those who read me know that means 1858-1891). Not a bad amount before, and plenty after, but my first right in the middle. We’ll take it. (Someday I’ll write up why I think the dead zone is dead, but that won’t be tonite).
Unbelievable baby! First ever multi seated day. A single seated day is awesome in my book. In fact, I didn’t dig a single seated coin in all of 2013, now I have 2 after about 7 hunts this year. My season is made already, baby!
