    Snuck out the other day

    Doctor should be releasing me into the wild next week...but snuck out of my cage the other day
    for a little while. Went to an old spot that has been hammered - havent been there since 2018
    Last time i was there - i hit way out and got sinkers and musket balls. Spot has been hit by many from chest on in ...so
    i usually go out to my limits - last time there while heading in...i was like in waist deep water long after low
    and got a silver halve down over a foot and was surprised it had been missed...I had scooped it and headed in to
    find out how friends had done and and was shocked when i saw large black disc in scoop - they were too
    had i known i would have stayed in that spot and hit it slower but they were ready to leave.

    This time i did my usual and headed way out with mask & snorkel - it was really quite. I got a couple of musketballs
    and a few sinkers. I had planned on trying to do a water vid but viz was horrible - could barely see my hand
    I was happy just to get in - this spot is not for the new guy...it rarely sees any swimmers and is popular more with
    fishermen now. It was popular 100+ yrs ago and has given a handful of hunters some nice old gold and silver
    over the yrs. along with a few relics, a bunch of musket balls and some CW era minies too.
    I decided to call it a quick day and headed into shallows towards my GF sitting on shore remembering the last time
    I made this same path. I was in a spot with some larger rocks and fought to make it thru. I got a few lures and
    a few sinkers and then got a loud blast. I figured large iron others had passed or a recent can. I clicked over
    to ID mode and got a high tone which is usually good on the CZ. It took three scooped down to finally get it out
    and i was shocked what it was - large old brass door knocker. Others must have thought it was large junk. Hurricane
    wiped out 100s of houses here in 1938 - I can only guess it came from one of those. I walked like 3 ft away and got
    a faint hit and thought it might be a small lead sinker or musketball down deep. Took 2 deep scoops straight down to
    retrieve and was shocked to see it was another large black crusted disc from well over a foot down. Wow another half...
    but no. I flipped coin back and forth and cold not notice anything familiar on it. No Franklin...no walking lady...no Barber.
    Finally i could make out head of King George on it and thought i might have a silver Canadian half, but could
    not make out the back as anything looking being on a Canadian coin. I placed in my pouch and worked area slower
    and was able to pull up some thin older clad. Called it a day.
    Got to shore and GF asked anything good and told i had a large silver coin. Pulled it from pouch and
    handed to her and she asked what is it? I was getting out of my gear and told her to rub it a little (place joke here)
    I told her to turn it over and wet it a little (go ahead...make another) and asked if she could make out
    half dollar or half crown - told her half dollar would be from Canada - half crown would be UK most likely. She saw half crown
    and said it looked like 1947...turned out to be 1942. So I did not get skunked and got a coin i have not found before.
    Hoping i can start getting out more and have more to show in the future
    Sorry for the horrible pics - used a sub par camera... my old reliable crapped the bed last month - going to
    have to look for another.

    I was surprised at how far i got out that day - i was almost in the shipping lane - i found some sand bars this year
    that werent there in the past and found myself way way out at one point - thing is there was
    no viz hich isnt good and i hit 4 very large iron targets and wondered if one or more could be canon balls
    will have to check out one day but under better conditions - during Rev War i dont believe the balls
    were that big of a calib. but they changed guns in War of 1812 and the CW ones on the wall
    now are like bowling ball size - no action happened here then but they might have test fired a few
