Quality hour in the woods

Back to my turn of the century picnic spot in the woods cause I know there's more to be dug. 6-8" down on all 4 coins, strong signals. 1896, 1900, 1907 IHC and a 1927 wheatie. Also a ladies long thin hat pin. I'll be back. Peace Roy

    Well over 100+ IHC so far. Moved a lot of downed limbs to expose more ground to wack at. Paid off. Have a good day @ricko

    Watch out for the neighborhood hornets. Good luck with the search

    nice finds and lots of work. In my neck of the woods you would be fighting ticks at this time of year.

    No kidding @No Headlights . Last year I got attacked twice here. I'm watching and listening while I dig. I think I'm more concerned about the ticks. The hunt continues. Peace Roy

    Don't forget the 'murder hornets' :D That was a big scare earlier in the year...seems to have faded now. Ticks are a big worry though, nasty disease carriers.... Good clothes and repellent are necessary. I even have our yard sprayed a couple times a year...protects the dogs. Cheers, RickO

    @Namvet69
    How do you cleanup the IHC's, or are they fairly clean out of the ground like a silver dime?
    Thanks

    What happened out in those woods in the past that you find so many coins? Old school/playground? Store? Other?

  • Namvet69Namvet69 Posts: 8,662 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @DBSTrader2 based on what I've dug so far, it's the remains of a work camp site of an early railroad line that ran on the NJ side of the Delaware river. Lots of fresh water oyster shells, railroad spikes forged together into splitting wedges, applied top bottle shards and lots of 19th century and early 20th C. coins. A few assorted womans jewelry, fragments of eating utensils. Peace Roy

    @Namvet69 .... Old sites like that can produce some really interesting finds - beyond coins in many cases. Cheers, RickO
