Default 4 Little Indians

I hunted a curb strip in town yesterday for about 3 hours and dug 4 IH pennies a Rosie, and 3 Wheaties. I have never found more than one IH in one hunt, but 4 was just crazy. The curb strip was only about 3 to 4 foot wide and I hunted about three blocks. I think I am going to start digging all pennies again instead of digging just silver signals.

Nice! One of my goals for the year is to do some more short hunts at curb strips.

With four Indians - all turn-of-the-century or older, a silver dime, and three wheaties, I'd say you had a great hunt!

Default Not only silver signals

I didn't mean I don't ever dig pennies, it is a guessing game though. I have a gozillian pennies in a bucket in the garage but on a curb strip hunt I dig them. Shallow Penney signals at a school yard not so much. Best rule of thumb for me is dig everything that gives a good repeat signal. You just never know what you might miss out on if you don't.
