A few good ones tonight...
With the lack of rain around here the ground is getting rather hard.
Putting curb strips, and private permissions on hold till we get some decent percipatation..
I hit a vacant lot this evening, where a house burnt down last winter.the lot has mature oak trees and half the lot, is mowed
(For Skeeter control) by the next door neighbor.
The actual owner of the vacant lot has told me several times to detect there....
Maybe I should take my mower and mow the rest of the lot?
My results tonight.....
5 wheats, (208)
1936 GW (silver#56)
12 cents clad,.
(1965 clad dime)
with a Fu mint mark!!

Nice job staying after it.
I won't go out after 7:00 PM, I can't stand the skeeters!

Nice haul. Love finding silver GW's and wheats. Not sure what kind of mint mark you mean. Mint error or damaged? Can you get a better photo?

Three types of Skeeter spray,
I soak my shirt every time, wearing it every time I go out,
( not washing it) I spray it down ,
I sometimes use a head net that keeps them off my face....
It also helps keeping those
no-see-em bugs away.
Try some of those citronella pins that pin to your shirt.
When I fully suit up...
I must look like a bee keeper to passer byes??
