    Hello Everyone,
    I did a 7 hour Metal Detecting hunt at Brooklyn's Prospect Park. I had almost the same finds I did last week! This time with a better Indian Head Cent.

    2 - Mercury Dimes 1927 & 1942
    1 - Indian Head Cent 1900

    8 - Wheat Cents

    @paddyman98 did you ever MD at Fort Totten? Looks like a good place to look.

    I counted 182 coins. If my math is correct, you found a coin every 2.3 minutes! Wow!!! Does that sound about right? That's amazing, no?

    Sometimes 2 or 3 coins are together in the same spot. We call them coin spills. Today I had a coin spill with 6 coins.. 3 Quarters, 2 Dimes and a Nickel.

    I'm glad I don't smoke.. Time is of essence!

    Two of the guys in our detecting club smoke and they stop every half hour to smoke. I only take a break to drink fluids.

    Paddy, any more of these metal detecting finds and NY will be free of all coins and toys in the ground. Once again, nice finds.
