Default Side walk removed coins foind

The city removed some sidewalks in the older part of town and bingo found a 1899 v nickle, 1889 v nickle, flat button and 3 wheaties. There was buried power cables next to the buildings so searching was tough. Went after it with the 4x6dd and cleared out most of the coins and alot of iron, then went after it with the 10dd had to tone it down but found a few wheaties. We are always looking for construction to expose dirt in the old parts of town.

Yeah! Those sidewalk tear outs dont last long...items down in there protected for years until a tiny little window of opportunity shows up...Old guy I know here found 11 seated dimes at a little local sidewalk tearout infront of an old Movie Theatre in about a half an hour...

Right place, right time, right Man, right mind...thats tear outs...Great Work Coast!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.
