Default SNUBA Again but another Wheatie from the same strip of old Park

So today was my 2nd "check dive" of my SNUBA set up. Got the weight belt right and was able to hover around the target better, now I have to buy a Rx SCUBA mask. Sadly my eyesight has gotten worse since I was diving more frequently a decade ago. With better/magnified vision in the water I will be able to dial in on the target and recover faster and not look like idiot in the water with my face 2 inches from the bottom (fish must think I am VERY strange ).

Anyway, with that out of the way I decide to hit the same old playground edges that I hunted after my first check dive yesterday.

I am only focusing on an area about 5 x 10 feet where I pulled the 1920 Wheatie yesterday, and today within 15 minutes I pulled another one..a 1919!

Always fun...Oh and if you are wondering what I did in the water, I found a grand total of $.38, a set of car/house keys, and a bunch of balled up tinfoil...(imagine what that sounds like with an Excal....do I hear YELLA!) LOL.

HH all!

Nice wheatie! Nearly 100 years old.
