Morning at the Beach...

Here at the beach I started out at the TotLot, found some clad coins and this weird type button looks like it came off of something denim or Gothic. The size of this button is 1" long by 1" at the widest point.
At the spiral slide in the woodchips I also found an unspent bullet 350 Auto this item I don't want to save, usually I see a police car in the area but not today. After I got home and mowed the front yard, than I talked to the neighbor told him about my find and that I want to dispose of it properly, he told me to call the police and they would pick it up. I did and they did come to pick it up, to dispose of it the right way. **Never throw a live bullet into the trash**.
After the play area I went over to a different area of the park, here there was a gravel parking lot, found quite a few coins in the gravel parking area. I this area I found this pendent which registered as a penny/dime on my ACE250, looks like it's a frame for a dogtag. The size is 2 1/2" long by 1 5/8" wide, belive it hangs on those ugly big chains. There was an event here over the weekend with all kinds of modern and old fire trucks and live music, where the stage was I found one of the guitar picks (red) Quality Taylor Guitars H...

Some Morning Coin Shooting...

This morning was a beautiful start of the day, clear skies and not to chilly but still have a bit humidity to deal with. I went to one elementary school (nicknamed the Mosquito school, there are a lot of trees covering the play area and very little sun gets thru causing a large amount of these blood suckers). Didn't find a whole lot of coins here, did find .58 cents. Also found a pair of childrens shoes in the grass, each shoe had a heart charm on the top, I took them off the shoes to use on my painted spoons as an accent piece, I did leave the shoes there. Instead of searching another school I decided to search one of the many parks I go to. I'm going to wait until the kids are back to school so the play areas and school grounds get replenished. The park produced a lot of dimes, here I found .98 cents.

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins-$1.56; 2 quarters (1991D, 1998P), 9 dimes (1981P, 1988P, 1991D, 1993D, 1995D, 1996D, 1997D, 1998P, 2004D), 2 nickels (1994D, 2000P), 6 pennies (1973, 1983, 1988, (2)1995's, 2010).

Yesterday Morning at the Laundry Mat...

While doing laundry I walked around looking on the floor and in the machines to see if I could find any coins, I saw none. As I was watching the clothes dry, I looked at the machines at an angle and with the reflection on the face of the Driers I saw something sticking out of coin return, found a coin after all...

Coin Shooting Morning of August 24, 2010...

I was driving to the beach this morning, spotted 3 deer feeding on the side of the road as I slowed down the car noise caused them to look up at me, a beautiful sight. In this town you can come across areas with deer, last year I saw one running across someones front yard.
Last week at the beach, I talked with a lady nicknamed the "Purple Lady" for she wears purple all the time. She told me that she collects pull tabs for "MS" I told her that I had alot and that she could have them (I have no use for them), she told me who to drop them off to an old gentleman that always sits at the beach, he will give them to her (saw him there many times). I took the bag in today, when I walked up to see if he was the person I spotted a penny on the sidewalk.
Searched a little over an hour the Totlot and some of the grassy area.

A Day of Rest...

This Morning, I decided not to get up before 6 AM. I took it easy this morning and after awhile I went out for a short time to the grocery store. When I got inside the store I went over to the Coin-Star machine and checked the return slot, didn't see anything so I stuck my hand in and found a quarter. When I was done getting what I needed I spotted a dime on the floor in front of a bench by the Exit, I picked that up also...I plan to go detecting tomorrow, hopefully it'll be a quiet night from the neighbors.

A Morning at the Beach...

This morning, I went back to the beach to search the park. Not much at all in the TotLot, did find a dime and this pin, had to cut thru the material under the woodchips to get at the pin, it is 1" long x 7/8" at widest point. Has a circle with a green cross and the words on the pin says Rochester Safety Council - the words around the circle says Universal Safety one little word on the bottom is hard to make out. Also found a lot of pennies 13 are pre-1982's. Met some nice people this morning, one couple asked if I found something and at that moment it was a bottle cap but mentioned that my machine registered a quarter and there was still something in the hole, my pro-pointer was buzzing. Ah, got the quarter and a dime. Was out for about 2 hours. The 1969D dime at first thought was a 1960D, no luck after cleaning it a bit more I noticed the 0 was a 9.

Sunday Morning Elementary Schools...

This morning I went to two schools and did very good. The first one I went to looked like someone had been there before me, saw some large areas that had been dug and filled in not to good. The woodchips I found nothing, except in the second smaller play are a couple of dimes. I searched the grassy area around the school and found coins. The first school I found $1.68. The second school wasn't to far away, there is construction work going on here so had to walk past the skids of supplies to get to the play area. I managed to find a quarter in the woodchips at the end of the slid and under the climbing equipment I spotted a ring on top of the woodchips, this childs ring has no mark. Again, I went into the grassy area and started to find coins also around the jungle gym (had to crawl into it. Man, I'm not as young as I used to be. There I found a quarter). At this school I found $1.54, than I called it a day the sky started to look like rain...

Coin Shooting Saturday Morning

This morning I got an early start so I could search at one of the elementary schools before the club meeting, that starts at 10 AM. I did find clad, more in the dimes (found $1.08). After the meeting all new members and members that never hunted in a seeded hunt got a short lesson on how and what to do. I joined in since I never have never done one of those. The club president seeded dimes, he showed us the technique that is used to plant the coins in the soil (very interesting). Also, the members that have done this helped the newbies learn the technique on searching and recovering the coins, what to look for and hopefully pick up speed (that will come with time and practice). While waiting I recovered a lone penny. I did get 18 dimes.

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- $2.89; 1 quarter (1998D), 26 dimes (1966, 1970, 1972, 1977, 1978, 1984D, (2)1984P's, 1985P, 1994P, (2)1996P's, (2)1997D's, 1998D, (3)1998P's, 1999D, 2000D, (2)2000P's, 2002D, (2)2005P's, 2010P), 4 pennies (1961, 1982, 1993, 2005).

I did find a lot of coins in the play area guess the break gave it a change to refill with coins. I was Lucky no one went there while I was away. Today, I did very good at this park.
