Default Morning Merc and Wheat Harvest

Went to my local hunted out park for an hour before the heat drive me off. No shade here.

After a little rain the deep coins were popping in the trash and iron.

Picked up a 1941 Merc, silver #53, and 7 wheats dating back to 37.

Going to hit this place again this evening if no more rain.

I love this Deus. Places I thought were dead are putting out!

Also did a door knock with JD recently and picked up a Knoxville transit token, a Mississippi State Sales Tax Token, wheats and a pin I haven't ID'd yet. That is the last two photos.

Nice finds but I wouldn't call that a hunted out park at all. I'd love if I could hunt my local park and find wheats and silvers.

I say hunted out a little tongue in cheek these days. I've been told several times my local parks have been hit so hard there is nothing left. It's getting harder and harder, but a good detector can squeak out some stuff.
