Default Hunted the pounded park with markinswpa! Seated/Merc/Rosie dime trifecta and nickels galore!

I had the pleasure of finally meeting up with fellow member markinswpa today for a hunt at the pounded park. We started on a deer doo doo covered hillside that had fresh, sloppy plugs everywhere. Whoever recently detected it missed A LOT! We immediately started popping coins. I found a Merc and a Rosie early in our detecting session along with a 1910 V and a buffalo. Nickels were plentiful all day long. I dug 20 nickels total today...3 of which were buffaloes and 1 V. Mark got on the board with some silver soon after. My buddy Tyler came and joined us for about an hour. Soon after he showed up I dug the seated dime to score the dime trifecta!

At one point, the local park detecting bully decided to stop and harrass me again. I guess he cried to someone at the park about my friend having permission to detect the public golf course there and got my buddy's permission revoked. He claims someone was digging up the greens and leaving sloppy plugs. More than likely it was his detecting pals who did it or he was making up lies because he was butt hurt that my buddy got a sweet permission that he thinks is all his. Speaking of which, some of his buddies were detecting about 100 yards away from us and he was over there being all chummy with them. I'm sure he's cooking up a way to get anyone who isn't part of his detecting clique banned from the public park. So if any of you find yourself in a public park in Pittsburgh, and a guy named Wayne rolls up on you in his gray Dodge Ram giving you grief, tell him to shove it!

And now for the pictures of today's finds...

I'm not sure what the tags are for in the last two pics. They were found together in the same hole with a key.

I think that the tags were from a locker key...I found a bunch at a ski resort I detected last year...there may have been a set of "pay to use" lockers there at one point

Thanks for the invite Fred, you definitely killed it yesterday. I just wished that Wayne had stopped back so you could show him all he and his friends had missed. I'm not one for rubbing it in but he needs it. I had a great time, a good hunt and look forward to meeting up again soon. HH Mark

You should make the drive! I'll give you my silver for the day to show Wayne some etiquette.

Thank Tom! I essentially got skunked if you go by East Coast standards!

Thank you! He is indeed a big time D bag. His demeanor has made me all the more motivated to hit "his" spot.

Thank you for the info! That makes sense for this park we were at.

Thank you JAK! It was a blast digging so many good targets one after another.

Thanks for coming out Mark! It was nice meeting you and hunting with you. We'll definitely have to meet up again and try some other spots. I'm bringing my son's GoPro next time to video any encounters with Wayne. And then I'll post it on my YouTube channel as a video reply to his videos. I thought about showing him my finds next time but I'll just let him keep thinking he and his pals got it all. If he sees us finding good stuff he'll do what he can to protect "his" hunting grounds. Word on the street today is that he purposely made some sloppy plugs on the greens and went to the golf course manager to say is was my buddy...which resulted in the manager yanking my buddy's permission.

An amazing outing Fred. Congrats on both the trifectas, the Silver Dimes and also the Nickles. Indians, Wheat's and a lot more make for a very rewarding hunt. It's even better when its shared with a friend. I'm sure you will remember this one for a very long time. Trapper
