Treasure Hunting, metal detectors, garrett metal detectors, wheat penniesIf you are a coin collector with a serious hankering for rare wheat pennies, you can supplement your collection through one of the unorthodox ways some treasure hunters use by prospecting for them with metal detectors.

Beaches are among the many places you can search for Lincoln wheat pennies with your metal detector, although other sites will do, as well.  It will be a good idea to keep track of your various finds by listing them down and cataloging them according to location, wheat penny type, and coin condition.  You are likely to find a lot of other coins and various materials made of metal, as well.  This makes wheat penny hunting with a metal detector both exciting and challenging.
 
metal detectors for sale, wheat pennies, treasure huntingIt would be a good idea to use metal detectors that come with a depth meter.  This way you’ll have an idea how deep you have to dig to get at your treasure.  Try to look at ground that’s been newly broken in preparation for construction.  For some reason, savvy coin hunters prefer school grounds, particularly those of schools that have been around for a long time.  Who knows, you may find a treasure trove of wheat pennies dropped or lost there by turn-of-the century school children while cavorting in the school playground.
