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.

How Do You Store Your Wheat Cents?

March 21, 2009 by Jake · 1 Comment
Filed under: Wheat Penny Information 

It's always interesting to see and hear how people store their Wheat Pennies.  If you have a collection, then you have that collection stored somewhere right?  Some of the most common places people store their collection of Wheat Pennies are:

  • Jars
  • Boxes
  • Paper Rolls
  • Socks (yes the ones you wear on your feet)
  • Drinking Cups
  • Tupperware Containers

If you have a collection, then you definitely need coin holders, ones that are made for pennies.  Especially if you have valuable Wheat Cents!

No items matching your keywords were found.

Of course there are many different ways to store your collection.  I've used about every method mentioned for coins that haven't been sorted through yet.  I only put them in rolls after I have sorted them and have no need of looking at them again.  I can mark the paper rolls so I'll know what's in it, or number it and have the numbers documented somewhere as to what they are.  Then of course, the ones of value are inserted into coin holders like the ones above for safe keeping and easy viewing.
