ID:	1731441 this place has had a lot of traffic over the years, and then dropped off the map in the 80s. I'm working an old cistern that although dosent look to old at first glance, but when you look close you can tell it's much older tabby construction with a fresher newer coat of plaster.Click image for larger version.

ID:	1731475.....maybe bronze. Could be some harmonica reeds or music box parts with all sorts of fasteners and other little doodads....I already put a lot of lead in the stash pile and put away double the clad shown. I'm just cherry picking high tones right now this place has many more days ahead of it and I'm hoping that some older coins are here !! I have only been about knee deep so far and it's real tough to retrieve targets here in the rocks.
    Thanks for looking peeps and happy hunting !!

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."
