Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284)
I was metal detecting a local park in East Liverpool, OH after supper on Palm Sunday (April 17, 2011). I had 2 hours before dark, so I tried a ball field for a little while and found 4 quarters, a dime, and a penny. I decided I would give the woods by the ball field a try since it had no weeds from the winter.
I came across rusty cans and foil and then I heard a loud sound, but it was a good sound. I was using a Coinmaster 6 DB Series 1- my main detector, own 2 of them. I ruffled the leaves with my lesche because most of the junk and coins are on the surface. The ground was so soft I didn’t have to dig with my lesche.
I dug down 2 inches and found 2 silver dollars (Morgan) an 1887-O and a 1896, then a seated quarter (1877) and then another silver dollar (Morgan) 1893, 2 Barbers 1893 and 1896-O. I was shaking at this point, I was so happy I didn’t know what way to turn next. It was an amazing find that day!
