Buckeye, Arizona desert metal detecting hunt. This particular metal detector enthusiast had the day off from work and decided to hit the desert. The first signal that was dug was nothing special, it was a modern day lead bullet slug. Then an unusual target was unearthed underneath a Mesquite tree just below the surface. The find was an old small purse containing 10 old coins. The surrounding area was searched thoroughly, but no other items of value were discovered.
The 10 coins were two 1941 Mercury dimes, six Wheat cents, with dates ranging from 1920 – 1930, and two Buffalo nickels, a 1935 and no visible date on the other. A short hunt in the hot desert sun that pays off with a little coin cache. Thanks for watching.
