I went out to a 1943 Park for a couple hours. At first my hope of finding something was pretty weak. All targets including trash was shallow since the park had been recently renovated. So I started criss crossing the park looking for deeper targets hoping to find undisturbed soil. Then I hit a target with numbers like 11-47, 13-47, 12-47 meaning silver quarter like numbers at 5-6″. I found my first silver of 2015, a 1943P Merc. So I crawled over that area and pulled 5 wheats with dates ranging from 1925 – 1952. Two of the deep wheats rang up like silver dimes, bummer. I was hoping for more silver, but I didn’t find any. It was a tough hunt today, temps in the lower 30’s and breezy at times. The ground was frozen down about 3″ and a bear to get through. At least I started the year heading in the right direction.
On the board with silver for 2015
