A lot of digging, not much old

I had to go and let Mr. Jinx in the picture..not really.  I’ve been out digging every free moment I have.  No silver to show for it, but some old wheats like 1910 and 1918!  So I’m in the right area, but am I missing the better stuff?  Same old questions.  I hunted three parks dating into the 1800’s and only found a couple wheats.  In one rather large old park, I dug two clad dimes at 6-7″.   I didn’t find one old coin after two hours of hunting.  In fact, I only found 5 modern coins.  So is everything deeper or has someone with a good machine and skill cleaned it out?  I don’t know.  I hunted an 1800’s era house where the grass was knee high.  It was tough, but I pulled some old wheats and some modern coins.  The farmer said he was going to mow it soon and would give me a call.  A really great guy to boot!  I hope the rest of you are nailing it, just kidding. I hope everyone is finding the good stuff!  Still two silver coins shy of my goal…….
