Metal Detecting Finds Videos
Manny Digs a Merc
Manny and Steve visited Dayton Digger's honey hole. Manny was using his newly aquired detector and was doing even better than with his old machine. He scored first silver with a nice merc.
Manny invited Doug, Mark and myself to detect some sites in Blufton thanks to his Aunt. We started in the front yard of her 1920's home where I dug a nice walking liberty half.
Dayton Digger decided to dig everything this day and that paid off. He recieved a loud somewhat shallow signal expecting clad. When he flipped the sod back he saw a silver quarter and another coin stuck to it.
Manny digs his first V nickel, dated 1905, it's his oldest coin to date. Congrats!!
Doug's Silver Quarter
Doug, Manny and I did some detecting at an old park. Doug found his first Standing Liberty quarter. The coin was on edge and made it impossible to pinpoint exactly. Congrats on your first SLQ.
