    Good morning everyone,
    Sunday evening I did a 2 hour Metal Detecting hunt at St. Mary's Park in the Bronx.
    I found Silver #66 for 2021 :hungry:

    1927 - Winged Liberty Head Dime

    That's a Stainless Steel Spoon made in Japan

    8 Wheat Cents - 1 is 1909 but I have to clean it

    Soak the 1909 in distilled water for a week or two. Then a soft bristled brush to move the crud off. I do this while submerged. I'm sure you have techniques worked out, but thought I'd mention it.

    Fun finds!!

    Maybe you can use the spoon to distribute phosphorus & potassium on your orchids. Or better yet, a spoon to dish up lunch for Joey. Lol !

    Nice finds again Paddy! With all you’ve found I would have thought the mayor of NYC would have honored you by now. :)
    Keep up those silver finds.

    I also do metal detecting mate, but live in south Norway =) Just sold my Makro Racer 2 and got myself a Nox 800. I do collect coins from America, so hope one day to metal detect over there. Some great finds you got there. Cheers
