    DSCN1751.JPG DSCN1758.JPG With the temps running 86-88 in the shade we decided to hunt for no more than an hour at a ball field we'd never hunted before. We were doing very well but stuck to our guns and ended the hunt after only one hour's time. In that hour we dug 54 coins : 11 pennies, 1 nickel, 25 dimes, 16 quarters, and 1 half dollar worth $7.16. We'll hit this spot again when the weather cools off.

    But the minimum wage for detecting is $0.00 per hour so we're ahead of the curve:D

    Nicely done Ed. You and Sue are troopers.

    Good grab on the coins. I don't do too much in the heat either.
    Cheers
