Default 5 different pennies again and some other oldies

Went out this morning with my 6 year old and got permission at an old place I've been wanting to detect for sometime.
Started swinging and the first thing that pops out is an Indianhead! Good sign.

I ended digging 3 wheats, one Indianhead, a V nickel, a war nickel and an old Boy Scouts button.

Unfortunately after being there for only about 30 minutes the lady who lived there asked me if I could stop digging holes and I said that was no problem......put an end to that! Dang!

Oh well, got some oldies out before the shutdown though.

Thanks Wave! It was nice to get some good finds today as yesterday I hunted 3 old yards in the same neighborhood and only managed two later wheaties. Those Indianheads, though, seem to be all over down in that neighborhood.

Thanks GS! That was the first war nickel I dug this year puting my silver count at 40. I'm trying to get to 50 before winter hits but I don't know if that'll happen.....silvers are few and far between this year.

Thanks Outlaw! I was kind of bummed when she cut the hunt short but I was able to get some keepers before then so I can't complain. We went and got another permission in the same neighborhood but all I got was a later Canadian penny and a 1917 Wheat. Can't complain though.

Just gotta hit those old houses up. That's almost all I've been doing this year and I've dug 22 of them. You'll find one..... I'm sure of it.

Thanks Trapper! It was odd to find another group of 5 different but not terribly surprising being this close to Canada.

I'm guessing North Dakota folks and California people are two different breeds. I have really good luck in the bigger towns and decent luck in the smaller towns. The really small town people are a little more guarded though.

Normally the early wheats and Indianheads clean up real nice.....the later wheats are a little tougher to clean up though. Nickels normally come out brown but not terribly crusty. I like the dirt I've got up here! Only drawback is I don't get the really old stuff up here like the guys out east.
