Last 2 hunts, silver and dirt yella!
6 Attachment(s)
Hey everyone, got out for 2 hours both today and yesterday. I managed two mercs, a really nice 1905 V nickel, a wheat and what I'm thinking to be a REALLY old button yesterday. Today was just crazy! Tried a new area at a park I have done well at in the past. It was literally pouring, I almost didnt hunt. But I finally got that golden monkey off my back! 4.4 grams of 14 K! Last gold was 2015 I think :roll: possibly older gold too??? If anyone has ANY input on that style of marking would be awesome! Also got a 1929 merc and 2 wheats and these cool Connecticut tokens. Can't wait to grid this spot out some more, I got a good feeling :cool: thanks for looking and happy hunting!

Love those V nickels. One of my very first finds 35 years ago was a V. Still looking for number 2 :)

Thatís dumbfounding Kiowa,I find V-nickels very regularly(1 every 15 hunts maybe). Probably have 20 of them,if not more. One thing Iíve noticed,on the CTX a reading on one may be 12-13 in an air test. If that same coin is buried 8-9Ē deep,the reading might degrade to a 12-07 or 12-08,so down the Conductive scale 5-6 points! Digging by depth has been the key as well,0-6Ē targets are not considered in most of my sites.
Just spouting off,not preaching or bragging. Im simply noting that they are absolutely out there,just perhaps bypassed due to a low reading at depth...
Good luck on your second!:grin:

It feels good to be a DIE HARD S.O.B. when you come up with this stuff buddy! Iím glad to see youíre having great success,youíve certainly earned it. Being wet and cold sucks,mud on everything sucks. But a TRUE HUNTER will never consider letting those things get in the way of the chance to find just one more more more gold ring. For us,the treasure hunt is the ultimate thrill.

I love the Connecticut tokens, beautiful design. That ring is gorgeous as well. I still havenít found a v nickel or a buffalo [emoji25]

NICE, dirty gold is tough to find, way tougher than wet gold!

Congrats Jeff on the trio of Mercs, V nickel, button, CT transit tokens and especially the vintage gold's likely 100 years old or more with that block 14K mark. Excellent digging!

Congrats on finding the real good stuff! Those raining days are sometimes the best.

Waveoff 11-06-2018 10:03 PM

Another fantastic hunt! Congrats on the dirt gold!

Buellride 11-06-2018 10:04 PM

Big time congrats! Love the V nickel and the YELLA!

Every cloud has a silver lining. Very nice finds !

Foragist 11-06-2018 11:04 PM

Well, it's about dern time, man! Nice looking mercs and V nic, but great looking gold band! Looks old to me too, but I have no specific knowledge on that mark. The pouring rain just made this a more triumphant success.
The flat button looks like it was cast in a 2 piece mold...but specific knowledge...

Amazing hunting Jeff! Awesome gold! Wahoooo!

pinheadken 11-07-2018 02:29 AM

You've been determined to find that old gold and it definitely paid off,
Big Congrats to you buddy! One heck of a season you got going!

HannibalNectar 11-07-2018 11:58 AM

Great hunting! I'm actually surprised it's the first time you have done it in over 3-4 years!!I do it a couple times a year at least... Beautiful gold ring regardless, the rest ain't half bad either, congrats!

Jamflicker 11-07-2018 12:01 PM

There you go, you got your gold. Congrats on the gold and the rest of the finds.
