Default 1867 Shield,1936 buffalo

Dropped the wife off at work, stopped by the Giving Hill to see what might turn up. Hunted a part of the hill i usually stay away from, i was told it was all fill dirt. Second hole was the shield Nickel . Game on! I managed to pull up a few modern zincs, can slaw. Then i went to a part of the hill i call the Dead Zone. All the detecters ive tried here act like they are broke or have an EMI issue. I got a real crusty broke nickel tone on my ORX. Up came the Buffalo nickel. pretty good day. Happy Hunting!

Dear Santa,

I've been very good this year. I've dug lots and lots of nickels and recycled a lot of pull tabs. May I please have a shield nickel the next time I go detecting?

Signed,
ToySoldier

Congrats on the nickels. If you want to clean them up a bit, try this.
I'd be interested to see how those clean up.

Good pix. And even though the ground is never kind to old nickels, I never get tired of seeing the sickly brown corroded disks Luv that first in-situ pix.
