I Guess the Hillside Wasn't Hunted Out

Last fall I detected a steep wooded hillside across the street from the high school in Port Washington, WI, the town next to where I live. It turned out to be the best spot I've detected as I pulled out four silver dimes, including a 1925-D Mercury, a 1937 Buffalo and about ten Wheaties.

I hit it a number of times last year and have also been back for four short hunts this year. I found hardly anything this year and figured I'd pretty much cleaned it out last fall.

I had a two hour hunt this morning and discovered I was wrong. I dug up two clad quarters, a clad 1967 dime, a Jefferson nickel and ten Lincolns, including a decent 1941-S.

I also found two small silver rings, both of them with a "Sterling" hallmark. It was the first time I have found two silver rings in one hunt.

Interestingly, only one of the Lincolns was a Zincoln. The rest were all copper coins.

So, I guess I'll go back again. It is amazing what you miss even after you've hunted a spot numerous times!

I already checked the two 1972's. Just plain old 1972's.

The only 1969 was a D.

It's really easy to miss stuff on a hill. Hard to keep swinging parallel to the ground. I have one really steep hill going from a cabin built in 1874 down to a lakes edge. It was converted to a rental property in 1953.

There were probably thousands of kids who rolled down that hill and I always find something I've missed before. I've probably been there 30 times already.

I went back to the hillside on Monday afternoon and dug up two more clad quarters, a clad dime, five Memorials, and, on a very steep and overgrown part of the hill, pulled out a 1940 Wheatie.

Nothing amazing, but the hillside continues to produce a decent number of coins.
