Default More Wheats than Clad, Multi-Silver (4) Hunt!!!

Boy RainorShine is going to be upset that I didn’t call him for the hunt…..but I can blame it on my wife 😊.

Late yesterday afternoon my wife wanted me to accompany her to a local town for a meeting and told me, “You drive me there and you can detect during my meeting”. Sure, I had been to this town 2 years ago but didn’t door knock. Glad she “forced” me 😊

This time I am glad I door knocked, 4 of 5 requests were a YES. First target was a Wheatie, second wheat, third…wheat….you get the idea. In the end I had more Wheats than regular pennies (16 Wheaties to 14 regular pennies)!! If you include the "pie" Wheatie, then I had 16.33 Wheats

First Merc was about 1 hour into the hunt on a permission, and the 2 Rosies were on curbstrips in front of permissions, and the 2nd Merc was on the edge of the last permission. All of them in under 60 minutes (2 ½ hour hunt).

Also scored a “no-date” Buffalo nickel and several “play money” tokens and 3 WA State Tax Tokens.

I had some oldies on the wheats….a 1909 (non-VDB), a semi-key 1912S and multiple 20s and 30s models. Full list of dates were: 1909, 1912S, 1919S, 1920, 1929S, 2 x 30S, 1939S, 1941, 1942D, 1944S, 2 x 1945S, 1950S, 1954D, and 1957S

Great hunt up here in the PNW where multi-silver hunts are HARD to find

Great job on the silver, but yeah, why is it when we go out together recently we get nothing but bupkis? Oh well, maybe you'll take me along when you go to the next "prime" location.

Any day you get four silvers in one hunt is an excellent day! Congrats!

Very true! Multi-silver days are hard to come by in the Pacific Northwest...

Congrats Bull on a short but sweet score. Multi-silver hunts are always fun and make for lasting memories. I trust you didn't keep the Mrs. waiting. Good luck, Mark

A 1957S wheatie would be rather rare, since the San Francisco mint stopped operating for a while in 1955...

C'mon man, you're on the west coast ! That 1909 Lincoln was supposed to be at least an "S", if not an S-vdb. You're letting us down, sheesh ! Leave those boring P mints for the east coast guys, and git-back out there and find us those key date S mints. Ok ?

The saying, "where there's wheats there's silver" is usually true and you proved it. Good hunt. That 1909 upon closeup appears wear wise not to have seen very many years before being dropped.

TY for pointing that out...I thought I captured the date correctly but I could be wrong. All my wheaties, unless it is "worth" something get thrown in a bag. I can double check at the end of the year....

Yea I hear you Tom, I have found several 1909 wheaties but none have been VDB....kinda irritated

It is kinda "rough" and I have found better condition 1909 wheats. I am more excited about the 1912S

I do as often as possible
