After Work Merc


It's been a few days since I've been out digging and I had the itch.

Luckily, I got permission to detect the front yard of a house in a development built for returning WW2 Veterans.  I tend to have good luck at these sites, so I was feeling optimistic.  I headed there right after work.

On my second signal, I dug a 1951 wheat penny. After a few modern coins, I found a 1941s merc in pretty good shape, and then more clad. 

Next, I found a toy plane.  A quick search says it's a Tootsie Navion and they were made from 1948-1953. 

After the plane, I found a key and then a few more clad coins, so I called it day.  

It was pretty fun for a quick dig after work.

Do you go on quick hunts after work, or do you prefer to make a day of it? Do you get "the itch" when you haven't been out detecting in a while?  Let's talk about it.

Thanks for reading and keep on diggin'.
