Default **2-Cent..Indians..5 Silver...Great Day!!**

Wow, another first for the Noobz. I have been on 3 hunts now with friends that decided to pull a 2-center. Well I was by myself today knocking doors and I got one for myself. I started off at an old Mennonite home. The owner gladly gave me permission to detect the yard. After getting pelted by acorns falling off the tree from the wind I got a nice 1941 Quarter. A little later I got the cool looking Lewis & Clark Centennial Medal. Its 1905. I left there and decided to head to the nearest town to get something to drink and I passed a house that just looked like an amazing spot to hunt. So I said screw the drink and turned around and got permission. I was nailing coins left and right in the yard. NO CLAD AT ALL..I couldn't believe it. Well I got the dime trifecta with the first 3 holes I dug. Next came a nice little 3 Indian pocket spill with the amazing 1884 and semi-key 1868 Indians in it. A short while later I got a wheat signal and out popped my 1867 2-center. I took so long to dig it out from under a root but well worth it!! This yard was huge and took forever to cover, but what a great day. Knocking doors is the way to go!!!!

Just curious, what exactly do you say to someone when they open the door? Sounds like you get permission quite often.


Thanks,
Brian

All it comes down to is introducing yourself and that you have a hobby of metal detecting. From there you just need to think of a nice way to ask if you can detect their yard. Hard to explain by typing. Goes4ever has a real nice setup on his website that explains the process. Its all about not being nervous or scared to do it.
