Had the day off, so I took my boy to the park. Brought the explorer just in case he would piddle around with me for a few minutes. We tooled around a bit, he had fun using the pinpointer to "help". He mostly picked up bugs and worms, and returned them to their "homes" on the trees. He decided that it was time to hit the slides, so I went with, and just as I got to the edge of the playground equipment, I got my first good coin signal, only 15-20 minutes worth of hunting total. Cut a 5" deep plug, coin at the bottom of the hole. I check it out, sweet! My third wheatie with the explorer. I start rubbing it and notice that it's from the twenties, always nice to get an older wheat. The second number starts to take shape and it looks like another 2, can't be...I was just looking at the value of a 1922 wheatie this morning, what are the chances. Sure enough, I examine it closely in good light, 1922 no D wheat penny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!! I can't believe it, it is in awesome shape to boot! I found a 1914 d wheat earlier this year, really crusty, didn't think I would ever top that find, well I a big way. It cleaned up pretty nicely with a little soapy water soak, and the best part...It's a die pair #2 a true "no d", by far the best of the '22 no d's, only about 15,000 known to exist. Must be a sign, I think this machine and I were meant to be together, it's already payed for itself!!!

Here are some pictures of the 1914 d wheat I dug earlier this year as well, super crusty, but a nice rare coin.

Your find made me start to clean up my wheats so I could see the dates and mint marks. That is a GREAT find you have there. Good luck on the bidding war.

Brought it to a rare coin expert today and he confirmed that it was the die pair #2 and grades about EF40 with environmental damage. If undug, this coin is valued close to $2000, holy moly!! I'm probably going to have it slabbed and auction it off, will be happy to get half that amount.
