Item Found: Coin

Location: New Jersey

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284-LSP)


April 16th, 2008

White’s Electronics,

While hunting some woods not too far from where I live in New Jersey I found a old change purse, or what was left of one. I got a VDI reading on my DFX of around 84. I dug down around five inches or so and came up with the coins all together along with that glass doll. No need to tell how thrilled I was. I found a 1925 SLQ and a 1927 Wheat, and four mercury’s with the years of, 1925, 1926, 1927, and 1928. Also the snap of what's left of the purse.

Thanks for looking.

Greg D.
