Found a few decent ones

#1

Post by fiat128 » Fri Jan 05, 2018 1:41 pm

Went out digging cans with Jay and his son over the break. We actually managed to find some cans that got buried rapidly after being dumped. Jay dug one side of the pile and got a stack of similar cans not in the photos. Ethan, his son also got some Pearl flats too. This are pretty much as found and not even really wiped off. I was pulling them out of the ground like this one after another. Not the most rare cans but the best thing was that the Hamm's are from Houston. I have not been able to find a decent one of those yet, they normally come out in really bad shape.

I'm thinking enough people have spoken up for the Houston Hamms that they are all spoken for. Doled out in the order I got requests. I'll go back with the detector to make sure we didn't miss any.

Went went out again in a different area and got a few more. The A1 is going to clean up decently probably and I had my 12 year old son with me and he got excited for the Coors and had fun detecting and dumping.

Enamel cans do really well, this one is the Mission Orange Soda, which is different from the common bank top.

Jay and his son came too. He got a pit of the elusive El Paso Falstaffs. These cans don't do well as the sand sticks to them and they don't clean up well.

Coin gods were nice to me too
