Congrats on an outstanding hunt and checking off a major bucket lister! That one Indian is immaculate as well.

This was the most exciting article on hunting/digging that I have ever read. Congrats on a super "what the heck" give it a try, that's the kind of hunting I like to do but have never found more than clad and rusted beyond recognition.

Super story AT, and great coins. I have to note that we just posted finding seated coins on the same day....(twilight zone theme..)

Now get out in them there fields and find us some marbles!

Thanks ecmo!! Thereís your problem....get into those parks, and youíll be floating in Seated coins in no time!! But seriously, this hunt has single-handedly changed my mind about spending some time at old parks if I donít have any permissions lined up!

Thanks BigD! Yep, it can certainly be fun and interesting - if the park has some history to it, you really just never know what might turn up!

Thanks George! Thatís a good solution also. Iíll probably do that also to provide extra protection once I spray future finds clean, or for those that wonít easily spray clean.

Thanks Waveoff! It really is a unforgettable hunt for me - the coins, the unlikely location, and how it unfolded with the nail masking the quarter...I think this kind of hunt was on my bucket list, I just didnít know it yet!

Thanks normx2!! I truly appreciate that high praise! A part of the joy of this hobby for me is sharing the excitement of the hunt and the history, so I really have fun writing up my more interesting hunts in the hopes that others can enjoy the ride, too

Thanks teotw!! I saw your post on your seated dime find...fantastic condition and detail on that one!! I replied in that thread, but I tried to pretend there was no weird parallel universe type thing going on...twilight zone stuff always creeps me out

Címon now, you know the deal...I canít find any marbles until you post one! If synchronized detecting ever becomes an Olympic sport, weíre gold!

I came back to read your post. I love it! You disproved your own misconception that this local park wasn't worth your time. Then you gave clear examples of detecting zincolns and injuns in the same area. This is helpful info for people looking to learn. Then another clear example of what it's like to detect a deep silver quarter with a big rust/iron nail masking it. We all love it when that happens!
You have good equipment, good skills, and a good location. It's great how you are advancing beyond the limits of your preconceived notions. I can really relate to that!
