I live near the Chattahoochee River in North Atlanta. I often hunt along the old ferry and bridge sites that I locate through my research using historic aerials and google earth. There are often old paths to favorite old swimming sites and fishing sites. I hunt in the river and along the banks at these spots. But one spot I always check for is about 10 – 20 feet away from the swimming or fishing site on the river. This is an area that people likely change their clothes for swimming or wading especially in the trees that are over 20-30 years old. I have found some nice old coins in these not so obvious areas. These spots usually give up more than a single coin due to coin spills.
