    Some stuff I found this year.

    2011 was a pretty good year. I found some good relics, some nice coins, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. My favorite relic last year would be the Baby US plate....hands down. As for the Coins it was a "toss" up.....The 2 reale Pistareen (dug on my Aunts property where I spent alot of my childhood) or the "BANNER" 8 reale dug early last year in icy rain. Can't decide. Anyhow, I tried to seperate last years finds from the rest of my collection, but i'm not certain if I left anything out. Not pictured are the dozens of buttons and IH's. I dug alot of brass this year...in which I'll prolly donate to HEFTYMETALNUTS... This year I'm going to be using the T2 rather than the Prizm III...(i'll miss the ole gurl) She has done her duty and has retired...and smells like an electric fire. I've hunted with alot of good people and I very much hope to do the same this year....thank you all for being metal detectorists. I wish you all good luck this season.
