Default Lost park stays lost, still hit two silvers.

Went looking for an old amusement park dated 1896 along the Delaware river. did lots of research, learnt all about the history,all about the three steam ships which brought people from philly and all over. It burnt down and closed in 1916. ( had dreams of newly minted 1916D mercs all over the place lol) narrowed down the site..... Seems someone put an oil refinery on top of it. Its a travesty and really unfair

Nice view of the Ben Franklin bridge though....

Couldnt find any trace so called it a bust and left.
Rather than go home skunked I stopped by my old town curb hunting spot (headmixforyou knows where I mean.) Picked a curb opposite from where Id found two barber dimes and a merc a while back. Got another silver ring at 80 on the atpro (deja-vous from last night!) and a Merc! a few feet away! also a 1940 wheat. so im a happy camper two days in a row....HH

nice finds! I know how you feel about building something over a historical site. There are a bunch of natural hot spring resorts in california that now belong to various industries like oil rigging and power generators. Makes you sad to do research and get excited about an old site but only to learn its now off limits because a rock quary or something has destroyed the site.

Unfortunately, more and more of our beautiful sites, and possibilities are being destroyed by "progress", it's a real shame. We lost a lot of great sites over here due to that. Anyway I'm glad you made up for it with a nice hunt. Congrats!
