Default 28 Quarters for a new total of 1,059 and Two more Sterlings***Update 9/23/22 Now at 1,093 Quarters

Again, I went back to my old faithful honey hole. Left early this morning from my home to beat the traffic and departed the site just prior to the employees and workers leaving for the day.

Today, I found an additional 28 quarters. This brings my current grand total of quarters from this one location to 1,059 or the cash equivalency of $264.75 just from all the quarters. And to mention dimes have been pretty good too. Plus for good measure I found two more sterlings, which are a large bent cross and smashed ring.

This site has been nothing less then insanely crazy! It certainly has been worth the drive getting there. Of course, I will be returning to it as I hope to find a goal 1,100+ quarters just from there. I am going to try and bleed this location clean for as long as I can.

Thanks for checking out my update!

***Update 9/23 photo below. Added 34 more quarters and another dollar coin too!

Congrats, I wish I had a site that produced like that! Are you digging nickel signals?

Thanks Steve! I know, it's almost like taking candy from a baby. But the good news is that these sites are still in PA. In fact, I have another location lined up for hopefully later this year. My timing has to be just right. As I was at it earlier this year and pulled out a good number of quarters from it already.

Thanks Soil Surgeon! Good question you ask...for most of my prior hunts there I was hunting mid-tones and up and naturally found a whole bunch of nickels. But this time I was focusing on higher conductors with my frequency settings and modes. Since I found a merc the other day, I was hoping I could do it again with another silver coin, but it just did not happen. So I had to settle for a consolation prizes of sterlings and a bunch of pennies too.

Nice John, I really like that cross. Congrats on the sterling and clad haul. Sounds like you won't have any problem hitting the 1100 mark. And hopefully a few more silver coins. If your digging wheats, well you know the saying. Good luck. Mark

Thanks Mark! I would have gone back there today but it's raining, although rain usually doesn't deter me. At first I thought that cross was crushed up corroded aluminum foil in the ground. Good thing I dug it up. Breaking into the 1K barrier of quarters sure as a unique feeling by itself. But no wheaties this time. I am trying all kinds of tricks, from settings, to ground sweeping directions and to coil sizes but at least it is still producing clad with I can bank on. Well, more continue success stories for all of us! John

Thanks FLOOD! The way I look at it, why go anywhere else when finds are this good. I am all for picking the low hanging fruit because if I don't I am sure someone else will or it will rot in the ground. As we all know, research and just going for it are some of the main keys to finding and hunting these type of rare locations. Thanks again for reading the updated thread!

Thanks randy! Actually, the sun and the heat were getting to me more yesterday. After this location dries up, I may have to actually start hunting for silver or old coins. But then again, it is all good! Randy thanks again for your kind words and good luck to you my neighbor!

Thanks Silverhorse! To me all those religious medals are kind of special especially when they are large and have some weight to them. It still amazes me as to how much stuff is still in the ground anywhere! And not only that, how much stuff I leave behind after detecting an area too. Thanks again!

Goodness, gracious!

What kind of location is it, park, ballfield, concession stand? I can't imagine what would have that much clad.

Thanks Silver_Seeker! All I can say is it is a municipal parcel property. I went back there again today and recovered an additional 34 quarters and a dollar coin too. I think to myself, why go anywhere else, when things are this exceptionally lucrative. This is my best location I have ever found for quantity of coins. As the saying goes, "I shall return."

Decent amount of clad for as many trips as you've been there. I look at it a bit differently. Have you not found 1 gold ring there ?

Thanks again Steve! I feel like I'm doing that community a favor of clearing out the semi-old metals pollution that have littered the ground for the next generation for their development and future. John

Thanks KOB! That's fine, everyone looks at things differently. No gold ring.

Congrats again John. I can't help thinkin depending on how long there had been activity at that site that there has got be to be alot of deep older coins. Is it the old black dirt ? Or do you think it has fill ? Iron in the soil ? Man what a site. Good luck. Mark
