I hit the jackpot this afternoon!  I went for a couple of hours to hunt an old school that I’ve been working lately.  It’s a school with an odd time period of use.  It was in operation from the early 1960’s until the early 1970’s, then it was closed down.  I found three silver dimes there last week.  Honestly, I didn’t hold out much hope for finding any more.

Boy, was I wrong!

I dug 8 wheat pennies …

And, curiously enough, I dug 3 old Canadian pennies from our Wheat Penny period …

But the real “goods” was the 6 silver dimes that I found!  All in a relatively small area!

I also dug a pretty good pile of clad.  Actually, there’s not a Zincoln in the bunch.  All of the pennies are genuine copper from the 1960’s.  Every one of them gave a really high / borderline dime VDI.  Frustrating …
