MDing first

On my lunch break I went to the doctor to get my allergy shots.  I was in and out pretty quickly, and it left me with about 20 minutes for metal detecting.  I went to the edge of a school ball field to hunt, and had another first: my first dollar coin.  It's a Sacagawea coin, but I haven't cleaned it off enough to see the date.


With things getting hot for the summer, I only feel like I can dig while detecting if I'm in mulch, an already not-so-nice area, or if conditions are wet. Today I made sure my digging was in out-of-the-way spots, and only made little holes.


I've found a fair amount of change there in the past, and it's an old school, so I'll go back again sooner or later.



  1. Congratulations! I've never found a dollar. Pretty good, and in only 20 minutes.

  2. Happy birthday Mark. Don't remember when it was but right around Kevin's. A dollar is great. Can't wait to see it.


I'm eager to hear your thoughts!
