I went back to the old lot all day on July 3rd (I would have posted this earlier, but I had a spare of the moment camping trip to the Red, White, and Bluegrass festival in Morganton, NC). After searching for a while I finally began to hit coins again. I ended up finding a 1964 Silver Rosie and 7 more wheaties.(This makes a total of 20 wheaties for this one area!) One of the wheaties is a 1911 D Key date. This coin was underneith a mass of huge roots. The first time I searched this lot, I found this signal under the root, but did not dig it because I did not have much time to hunt. Since I had all day, I decided to try to dig it. It took me more than 30 minutes to find it! LOL! I am glad I did. The penny is in a lot better shape than the scan shows. The scan exagerates the discolorations a bit,

Here are the pics!





Thanks for looking and Happy Huntin'!
