Default Lawn Mowing Surface Find

So there I was, zipping through the lawn on my trusty Toro mower, when I happen to glance a coin on the ground. I debated for a second about stopping the mower, hoping off, to pick up what I thought would be a penny. But, I did. Turned out to be a 1947 D Dime. Nothing fancy, but since I didnt even have a chance to go detecting today, I'll take it.

Better than what I found on an afternoon at the beach.

Good thing you picked that up or else you would have chopped it up, free silver & no digging required.

If you would have chopped it up with the lawn mower, and then found it with your detector it would have been cut silver . Nice save either way. Silver is silver.

Yea, I have heard coins slapping around under the deck before. Always wonder what it was. There is no finding it after.

You did better than I did yesterday. After two hours the heat and humidity had me begging for mercy. City park that I hit a few years back only yielded $1.65 in clad. Not enough to compensate for the pain and suffering I went thru with the heat and humidity My wife accused me of going swimming with all my clothes on when I got home.

Not the case... The coin was next to a large drain cover. I tend not to hunt close to them. They tend to set the Nox off something fierce.

Not a bad day, you found silver. If you had chopped it with the mower, Jamflicker would have found it! He's a magnet for marbles and mower strikes.
