    Hello eveyone,
    Yesterday I did a 5 hour Metal Detecting hunt at Brooklyn's Prospect Park NYC. I call the place Quarter Park because for some reason I always find tons of Quarters there.. $16.25 total!

    Nice hunt. I'm shocked the dollar coins are in such bad condition.

    True. I scrubbed them well after a long soaking in water. The Sacs are the worst.

    The Reverse sides..

    When you retire paddyman we will be able to see you at the bank, sitting in a corner, counting piles of money. Oh, I forgot, with a detector strapped to your shoulder. Continued luck to you...

    Sweet finds. I haven’t hunted as much this year and only have a few silvers so far But a month ago I was asked to find a lost Tiffany ear ring that was the last gift from her husband who unexpectedly died shortly after. This was the first time she wore them and when a neighbor asked her a question, she took her mask off to answer and the ear ring snagged and flew off.

    Thin gold and was a real challenge to find, in part because it landed within the roots of a large tree. But after near;y 4 hours I found it. Return #33.

    But while searching I got a strong silver signal but it was under a massive tree root. Took nearly an hour to tunnel under the root and then felt an object grown into the root on the underside. Popped it free and out came this silver buckle / coin. A two-fer AC715874-115D-4FCB-B576-550E04812854.jpeg 35E58B3C-7A71-47EA-92E0-C05573648595.jpeg
