Finding coins under an old clothesline
When I first started detecting 20 years ago one of the places I was told to look for was old clotheslines. I have hunted these over the years and had never found one coin there. Last Wednesday I had raked leaves for an older gentleman and when I finished I asked if I could use my metal detector in his yard. I first hunted the path he made from the front door to the mail box. One quarter and 5 zincolns there. In the back yard I tried under the clothesline and to my surprise I found 2 quarters, 3 dimes and 6 pennies. All in the sixties but no silver. One 1951 wheat cent did show up. Maybe I didn't find a lot here but it was a very fun hunt and I guess that I will keep looking under those old clotheslines.
