    Hello everyone,
    I did a 8 hour Metal Detecting hunt at 3 different parks in Brooklyn NYC 6/12/2021

    McCarren Park - 2 Hours
    Msgr. McGolrick Park - 2 Hours
    Prospect Park - 4 Hours

    I only was able to find 1 US Silver coin.
    And it was amazingly a 1954 Roosevelt which makes it silver find number 54 for 2021 :wideyed:

    Your 1981-D mint error cent is the result of what happens when a coin is stuck in the coining chamber when it closes up for the night. Very rare. Lol

    Another great day Paddy! You sure find lots of stuff.

    Nice loot Ed. The bigger question is if it is still ticking? :) I have one around here somewhere. :confused:

    Yeah, I can usually only take 2 or 3 hours at a time, this morning I was out sweating and digging and all I got was this old pocket knife.
