Default Nickel Trifecta (the hard way)

Tonight I stopped at an older part of town where some sidewalks were missing
I have to believe that somebody scooped up the copper and silver because I literally found 6 nickels, 2 memorials, 2 clad dimes and a few zincolns.
My first target was the war nickel.
There were a lot of hot rocks and "klinkers" but I managed to pop two more old nickels along the way.
You might think I was swinging a Nox with all these nickels...

This was my second nickel trifecta this year

Happy Hunting Everybody!

Great finds mat! I don't have much luck with nickels in general.... only 1 buffalo and 2 V's in 5 years. I'm kind of a picky digger though. Most of my digging occurs in nice areas and I'm sure folks would banish me from their little towns if I left too many dried up grass circles Great finds though.....and that shield nickel looks real nice!
