Found in pocket change...

While checking the quarters I save for laundry, I check the dates before putting then in my laundry container. This was the last one in the pile that I was checking for the date thats when I noticed the error in the coin. Now, I want to get it checked to see what something like this would be worth.
**Always check your change**

Another trip to the Dollar Store...

Today went out with my husband and one of the places was the Dollar store, the one I was at yesterday. When I walked in I noticed a penny in the same spot as the one I found yesterday so I went and picked it up no one was standing in line at the time. When it came time to check out I was waiting for my husband to finish what he was looking for, I than noticed more pennies in the same area so I got in line with him and when it was his turn to pay I picked them up. Found 4 pennies...

Not a Very Good Day...

This morning I went to two Elementary schools and at each one I didn't get to much. At the first school I did very good there earlier this year, but not today. I found .54 cents in clad, might of done good if I stuck it out there but the grass was wet and I was starting to get cold. I went to the second school not any better found this heart that registered as a penny, it measures 1 1/4" Wide x 1 1/8" High here I found .40 cents. With it being low I called it a day and went home. As someone told me "even a bad day is a good day".

Spiders are Big at the Beach...

Went out detecting this morning, before it gets to Hot, supposed to get up to 90 degrees today. As usual I started out at the TotLot, found a whapping 5 pennies (one was a Canadian penny). I than went into the grassy area, than I started finding some coins. Not far from the Carousel I found this Spider pin, some of the black (I think) Rhinestones where missing. Not long after taking the picture it broke in half, it broke in the area that was missing the stone. I also saw no kind of mark so must of been costume jewelry (found just under the grass roots below soil surface). It registered on my machine in the pulltab/nickel/can slaw range.

At this park I found $2.60, one of the quarters I dug up here I missed it by being silver by 1 year, it was a 1965. Last year, I did find a 1964 quarter by the tennis courts in this park.
Park two is a bit smaller it always gives me some finds. Clad found here is $1.36 and two house keys, first key found was in the wood chips and the second one I dug out of the ground. Both registered as a penny on my ACE250.

Another Morning at the Park on the Beach...

I have been having back and leg pain so not getting out at much right now, but I did get out this morning especially since the weather is starting to get cooler. I went back up to the park at the beach, started in the Tot Lot there I found a few pennies, not many going to the park lately.
There ia a memorial for the Vietnam Vets and the other Wars that have happened located near the play area, I searched near there and found these bullet casings the two cleaner ones I found on the surface of the ground the others I dug (all were about 2in. down (found 17). In the past I did find 1 that I dug up. I believe it was from a service that was performed there on the Holiday and then did 21 gun firing.
Up near the board walk, I found some pennies. I than got a strong penny signal when I dug it up seeing the the grooves I thought was a stack of pennies as soon as it was out of the ground I saw it was this ring. It is a junk ring. As I was heading back again near the area of the Memorial I come across a coin spill 6 quarters and 1 nickel were recovered from the hole. I searched for about 2 hours than called it a day for I was starting to hurt again. I do plan on going out again in the morning, need to excercise the back.

Went Back to the Park at the Beach...

Figured I search the area near the Carousel, different grassy area. Found some clad coins and another President $1.00 coin (Thomas Jefferson 3rd president 1801-1809) 2007P. After a bit I went a little into the sandy area, while searching around a large tree I spotted a Dragonfly sitting on a stick (he was rather large compared to the ones seen flying around). I took the stick with the insect sitting on it and lightly touched it to the tree, it raised a leg and walked onto the bark. Didn't want it to get stepped on and it was still in the sunshine (probably trying to warm up). Wish I had my camera with me when I saw that. Soon I will be getting back to my drawing, something to do in the winter...

Coin shooting/treasure hunting: coins- $2.46; 1 $1.00 President coin (2007P), 2 quarters (1986P, 1998P), 6 dimes (1966, 1995P, 2000P, 2002P, 2006P, 2008P), 36 pennies (1959, 1964, 1970 Canadian, 1972, 1973, 1973 Canadian, 1974D, 1980D, (4)1982's, (3)1983's, 1985, (2)1986's, 1986D, 1987D, 1989, 1989D, 1991D, 1992D, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2000, (2)2001's, 2001 Canadian, 2005D, 2006, 2006D, 2007, ????).

A Little Coin Shooting...

This morning I decided to try and get back into detecting so I went to the park at the beach, the temp. was rather chilly when I arrived than turned into a nice cool morning, no problems with the heat or humidity (ah, it felt good). I searched the Tot Lot, only a few coins the first one was a quarter. So I went on into the park, here I found many coins some areas had spills and many were found on the surface. Before I left I stopped at the Carousel to say Hi to Michael, he's the guy that runs it. He was getting it ready to shut down for the winter. Afterwards, I decided to call it a day (to my surprise) it was almost noon and I started at 7AM. As I was walking back to my car I decided to search around two more picnic tables I found more coins and a spill of pennies. Today I searched for 5 hours, not including the break at the Carousel.
