Silver Coins at Beautiful Old Kentucky Farms – E-Trac Live Digs with Audio

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.

6 Silver Day at 1835 House

I decided to hit a local town and do some freestyling.  I drove around a bit in a historic area and ended up seeing a place with a beautiful big yard, dating from around 1830-1840.  I built up the nerve and knocked on the door.  The owner couldn’t be any nicer.  He had bought the

Odd Finds…. It’s So Hot in KY that the Mercury Dimes are Swelling Up!

During a short hour-long hunt in my recently discovered Mercury dime hotspot in Lexington (so far 12 removed from a 100′ x 100′ area) I pulled something interesting.

Hitting more Silver with the E-trac

This past weekend have done pretty well with the Silver – Rosie, Two Mercs and a Beautiful 1916 Barber.   I also got a mystery pendant I’m working to identify.  And a cool old container. Saturday I also pulled a 5-coin pocketspill (1910s!!!) that had no silver in it (with a live dig on video to be

Old Farmhouse Delivers a 5-silver day

I love old farmhouses.  Somewhere East of Lexington I was granted permission to hunt an 1899 farmhouse near a highway.  The hunt didn’t quite turn out as I expected, the coins were a lot more modern than I’d hoped.  The silver I retrieved was 1929 or newer and it was a mystery why I wasn’t
