Another Barber Dime and More…

I’ve been talking advantage of the warm weather and finding silver.  I picked up another Barber dime and three Mercury dimes.  Considering how much I’ve been out, I hoped for more.  The recent finds were in areas I hunted before and just flat out missed them.  They were deep and iffy, but I should have found them.  I noticed here recently if I go a while without hitting a good sound my sweeps are faster and sloppy.  I need to work on that.  I’ve been exploring new places trying to find a new hot spot without much success.  There out there and I will find it.  It just take a lot of time and perseverance.  I also picked up four Indian head pennies.  I love finding those.  Two of them were only about three inches deep, but in a wooded area.  I would love to pound that area, but it’s brushy and full of trash.   You can barely move around and there’s minimal room for sweeping a coil.  I hope everyone’s getting out and finding cool stuff.  Best of luck.
