This was the first hunt at a site that was supposedly a stagecoach inn between 1790 and 1850 in South-Central Kentucky. It was well positioned between the Kentucky river and more populated areas along a now-defunct route for wagons and stagecoaches. The owners were wonderful folks, offering me generous access and incredible hospitality. I
Silver, silver everywhere – live digs coinshooting silver on private property. E-trac lessons for two-tone ferrous at beautiful places. HD viewing mode recommended, I removed the fisheye effect, there’s lots of detail in the video. Detector sounds on 90% of the live digs. Many more live digs coming now that my GoPro is
Here’s the latest high-definition live digs video including my day-long hunt at an 1860/1870 house, some great coins and a terrific artifact. I recommend you watch large and in HD. I cut down the length of the video a bit based on feedback from others. I will try to run 7-8 minutes on live
I headed out on Sunday to catch the minister of a small country church to ask permission to hunt (it was granted.) I met several people from the church, all of them, including the minister were nicer than nice. Before I knew it, he was telling me of an old African-American church location near his
I’ve been enjoying the soft ground and milder temps to get out and do some hunting. At one 1820’s house I got a solid 12-45 on the E-trac near an old tree stump. Underground, it was almost solid rotten wood – but the signal was pure and consistent. With only a 20 second dig time,
Did a video of some of my hunting Father’s day weekend. Ended up a 6 silver weekend with 3 Rosies, 2 Mercs and a Barber dime, and did live dig video on two of them. This video is fun because of a 5-coin 1910s pocketspill (copper and nickle.) Enjoy and subscribe!
This past weekend, I took advantage of the nice weather to hunt an 1820s-era farm. The conditions are difficult. Every coil swing reveals 4-5 iron signals, so I had to run the E-Trac in two-tone ferrous *all day* with a 6″ coil which is exhausting. Here are some of the finds. 1877 Seated Liberty Dime
This old beauty found in downtown Lexington. Copper material… and silver dollar sized. I think it’s a saddle adornment.
