Hello:
I've been hunting the Michigan's Eastern U.P. all summer.  I haven't hit a single silver coin or piece of jewelry!  That really sucks!  Any suggestions on where to go in Northern Michigan and the E.U.P to find some silver coins?

Thanks in advance.

There are books written on finding them that are universal in nature. The area in which you live really has no bearing. I once found a Roman coin in Australia. How it got there is a complete mystery to me but I guarantee you a Roman didn't drop it. Probably a souvenir from some Australian's trip to Europe that finally left its home in a pocket. I found a sixpence two weeks ago on a hillside here in Connecticut. The area was far too new and the coin's date of 1926 meant it was also a collector coin rather than a contemporary drop.

Coins around very old suburb sidewalks are often silver so give that a try. In most places the area between the sidewalk and the curbing is fair game but if an owner complains, move on. That's just courtesy. Look around old trees that have a trunk larger than 36 inches. There are plenty of those up there in some of the older parks. Search overgrown areas in the parks that were probably used 50 or more years ago when silver was still in people's pockets.

Go to Dan Hughes' web site and listen to his audio presentations for more tips on finding older coins. He has a wealth of knowledge on that subject and many others.
This is his site:

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

My guess would be to go where the people are or were at one time or another and that is the problem in the UP of Michigan not a lot of people were or are around that area...  which is why it is so difficult to find good areas I imagine. I would look at historical maps maybe find someone with local knowledge also...good luck!  Beer Chug

Want Older coins and Goodies you need to go to the Older places people Frequented.

Beach's, Ball Parks, Parks, Honey Huggy Spots, Old Home sites (Most Never had much in change) and the likes.
