My Oldest Coin Find So Far

Post by goldgrabber on Sat 30 Jan 2016, 7:07 pm

Here's a video showing a metal detecting trip using my minelab X-Terra 705 on a friends farm permission. The week prior, I found my first silver coin and this time out, I found my oldest coin to date, a George II half penny. The date is too worn but the coins were made betweek 1729-1754 so it's getting close to 300 years old. It was the only coin I found on the hunt but also found lots of things I thought were coins on their way out, until a bit of cleaning revealed most was junk.

i love finding the old coins goldgrabber, my find doesnt beat that but it is a 1897 penny found near an old mine where the production period was from 1895 to 98. smack on the dates. found it 6 inches down and next to it was a lovely gold specimen with around 7g of gold in it. thanks for the vid.
