Default Had some wheaties and silver for lunch!

Couldn't ask for a better lunch break! Spent about an hour and a half over lunch hunting an old park in a small town that is "hunted out" according to the locals I was going to start my quest for a gold coin but got distracted by all the high tones lol. Ended up with 14 wheat cents and a 1943 mercury dime! I even managed to get the silver on video live dig. I will be posting that along with other equinox live digs on my YouTube channel when I get time to upload everything. I am sure I missed some stuff but I will be back to clean it up for sure. Thanks for looking!

Haha yep. I have definitely learned over the years that no place is ever really hunted out. Especially large parks.

Wow, you were hot on the Wheaties there. Then a merc is a nice surprise too. Hope you didn't stretch your lunch break too long.
