Default A Bunch Of SoCal Silver And Some Other Goodies

Hey everyone,
I have been lazy and not feeling very motivated to post but figured I would show you the last 5 or 6 hunts. I haven't been able to get out for any long hunts so these finds are all from shorter 3-4 hour hunts after work. A few of the coins are in bad shape. Fertilizer in some parks is brutal on silver.

If anyone knows what the little winged spoon thingy is, please let me know.

These finds takes me to 101 silver coins, 543 wheat pennies and 14 pieces of sterling for the year.

Enjoy,
Jason

You're right. Whatever park you're hitting for these, must use a different fertilizer , or have different mineral content, than your normal stomping grounds. Because most of the silver you show doesn't have such pits.

You're right that it could be fertilizer. I've noticed that silver coins that come from golf courses (where they apply lots of fertalizer) tends to be toasted much more than normal ground silver.

Thanks! Yes, it's a half of a half.

Yeah, it's the only thing I can think of that would cause it. They come out really dark and pitted and that about as clean as I can get them.

Haha, yes it's my first cut half of any kind. I would probably shake my head if you called it a jamflicker too. I call marbles peekaboos because of how they are always barely peeking out of the dirt when I find them. A couple of my buddies know but a couple had no idea what I was talking about.

Great finds...that pitting gives it character. And that half or a half is still worth its weight in silver.

Congrats my friend at again topping the century mark on Silver coins. Only 99 more to reach 200, if you can dig the other half of the half you can count it twice. That is if you get enough time to punish the ground. I can no longer pound the local parks as they seemed drained of good targets so I've been hunting private grounds or driving some distants to get my Silver fix. Like Tom said the fertilizer looks to have done a number on the coins. They look like a couple I dug years ago from a golf course. Trapper

Nice hunting Jam! Congrats on hitting the century mark!
The spoon looks like an old measuring spoon to me but just a guess.

Thanks Trapper! I know what you mean about drained sites. Itís getting harder and harder here too. Yeah it has to be the fertilizer that messes up these coins.

I would also say itís an ornate measuring spoon. What a collection! And yes,Iíve found fertilized coins to be pretty eaten up,one of the reasons I donít target copper.
Thatís a mound-o-stuff man,great job as always!

Very nice finds Jam! I'm sure you'll go back and find the rest of that chewed up Walker! And that one item looks like it says "poops" Upon closer inspection I think it says "pools"
