I went to Pioneer Park last night hoping to follow his example. When I got there I noticed a man working to dig up his yard. The house looked like it could be from the 1800's so I stopped and talked to him and his wife. They gave me permission and so I started on the dug up area of the yard. The first coin was a 1919 wheat penny followed by an old square nail from the 1800's. I thought it was going to pay out some old silver but in the end I found 6 wheats from 1915, 1919, 1927, 1940, 1947, and 1952. Also found some cool relics as well.
I told them I would love to come back and then I went back over the park to hit the gutter that was ripped out. The first coin I found was a 1944 Mercury dime and I thought I was going to get a couple silver for the day. After that I seemed only to find old buttons, the most I have ever found in one outing. The last thing I found was a 1913 Wheat penny.
