Did a little Coin Shooting...

This morning I searched for a little while, went to one elementary school I've been to a lot. I searched the woodchips knowing I wouldn't find anything there so started searching in the grass surrounding the play area. I did start finding some coins, figured I focus on quarters on my machine (found 4 quarters) and 4 pennies. I decided to stop here and go next door, there is a good sized park so I searched the front baseball field around the bleachers and some areas in the grass (grass is still very wet from the dew, so I called it a day or morning). Found .33 cents in this area.

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- $1.37; 5 quarters (1965, 1974, 1995P, Maryland 2000P, West Virginia 2005P), 12 pennies (1961D, 1969, 1980D, 1983, 1984, 1987, 1994, 1996, 2009, 200?, (2)????).

Found a Toyota...

Went to one village park, have been to it a couple of times so I thought I'd hit it today. When I got there I saw that the TotLot had the woodchips replaced with a recycled rubber mat. Since I had planned on searching there and some of the surrounding area of the playground, I decided not to stay. Went to another Town Park, have been there also in the past. There are two good sized TotLots and some picnic tables in the area. I searched the woodchips, not to much so I went around the outer part in the grass found some of the larger coins (quarters all found in the grass). Did find another Chucky Cheese token this one is 2003, at first I thought it was a quarter. Around the other play area in the grass I found the Toyota emblem it is 1 6/8" Wide x 1 1/4" High, must of been from a key ring or someones necklace, on the top above the hat shows that there was a loop or something that has broken off. Not to much found, had to stop started to rain...
Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- $1.30; 3 quarters (1984P, 1998P, Arizona 2008P), 2 dimes (1988P, 1992P), 3 nickels (1995P, 2001P, 2003P), 20 pennies (1964, 1975, 1978, 1980, 1982, 1986, (2)1990's, 1991, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2000D, 2001, 2007, (2)2008's, 2010, ????).

Rainy start to a Sunday Morning detecting...

This morning I went out detecting, wasn't raining when I got up but when I got ready to leave I saw that it had rained. While driving down the street it started up again pretty hard, as I was going north towards the lake the sky did look brighter. At the last minute I turned onto my sisters street and went to the park that had the quarter spill. It was still sprinkling so I waited til it stopped than went on my way to do some coin shooting. I searched some areas and did okay, I than stopped in an area next to the baseball field where the people sit not the bleachers, I was digging up pennies everywhere. The ground was muddy from the heavy rain last night and this morning, I did find a Canadian dime mixed in with the pennies (2004) which I need in my coin album. I think I'll hit that area again in the future. Half of the pennies found today are pre-1982, which I save for the copper content. It's very warm and Humid so I called it a day after 2 hours of searching, can't even see out of my glasses due to fogging up (bummer).

Soccer Field Search...

This morning, I went to the park that had the Soccer Fest over the weekend. Started in the area that had the venders, found some coins but they have been there for awhile because I had to dig for them (not on top of the soil). Than I decided to hit the field, one soccer field was made into two playing fields they had been shortened. I did find some coins $1.82 not a whole lot, the area looked like it had been raked along the edges (grass was flattened to one direction) or it was from the people that had been sitting there. Did find a house key that was multiple colors, a key ring hook (light pink) and another type of hook that has writing on both sides (Not for climbing and other side says Safe working load 150 LBS) and this hook is black. I gave up here for now and drove over to the Tot Lot at the other end of the park, only found .08 cents a nickel and 3 pennies. After that I quite for the day. (should of gone to the beach *Laughing*). I will come back here in the future and search this park at leasure. Did very good here last year.

This morning back to the beach...

After I got my things out of the car and went over to the TotLot to search that before moving on the the other part of the park, first coin found was this 1946 nickel next to the swings. Did find some coins in the woodchips and in the grass. Behind a bldg at the west end of the park next to the bath house I come across another coin spill like the other day but this was pennies. Looks like the people at the business dropped the pennies than swept them into the grass, all were found in the grass on top of the soil (saw the way the grass was raked down). Was at least 50+ pennies, did find the 1936 wheat penny with in the bunch. Starting to get very warm again, even the sweat band I'm wearing isn't working to good, so called it a day and went back home after a couple of hours detecting.

Sunday morning detecting at 2 schools...

This morning I got up early to go detecting at 2 elementary schools. The first place I've done good in the past but today was hard to get some searching done. I was getting bitten by mosquitoes bad, could even heard them buzzing around my head with the head phones on. It is very shady, damp in that area. I decided to leave that location to go to another school at the mosquitoe school I did find .66 cents , that was for a 1/2 hour of detecting. The second school was much better, I wasn't being attached by those Blood suckers. Found .50 cents on top of the woodchips (eyeballed) and the rest was found in the grass around the building, at this school found $1.76. I'm looking at these schools at where to search along with the play areas.

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- $2.42; 8 quarters (Virginia 2000P, Kentucky 2001P, New York 2001D, Illinois 2003D, Illinois 2003P, Michigan 2004P, Wyoming 2007P, Arizona 2008P), 3 dimes (1975, 1984P, 1992P), 12 pennies (1975, 1977, 1979, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1998, 2001, 2002, 2004, (2)2007's).

Lost interest in detecting for the day...

Went out early this morning, one school I checked and nothing found in the TotLot the other week I did good here. The ground was wet from the heavy rain that we had yesterday, after here I decided to go to the beach and search the TotLot there. I didn't come out empty handed but not good. Found something that looks like a wavey ring (junk) and .62 cents, a Sports and Music festival was being set up here at the park so I decided to call it a day and stop.

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- .62 cents; 2 quarters (1983D, 1996D), 1 dime (1995P), 2 pennies (1993, 2001).

4th day of Heat Wave...

Again, went out early to beat the heat but the humidity is what got me. I went to 2 parks, first one was back to the place I was at yesterday. Didn't find a whole lot a few coins and 3 more quarters, but not in the same area, scattered .91 cents. Then I went to another park to search the Tot Lot found only .13 cents and a junk broken chain. Hope the heat breaks soon, enough is enough...

Got my first Big Coin Spill...

Today is another Hazy Hot and Humid day, went out early and back to the park I was at yesterday. This time I searched an area that had travel trailers parked from the carnival. Found a few coins as I was walking over to the area, than I started getting hits for pennies but all I was digging up was can scraps (bummer). As I was doubling back I thought maybe just focus on hits for quarters, than it happened in about a two foot area I was getting many hits from quarters I started digging up quarters seemed like there was no end got a total of $9.25 in quarters. I think I'll go back there tomorrow, supposed to be another Hot day. Searched for an hour than called it quits because of the humidity.
The newest quarter that I dug is 2007 so I figured these quarters had to been lost in 2008 or 2009 for all are typical dark in color...
