Couple keepers from first time out in months
I just had to get out as the weather was nice today. Headed out for my 'ol standby soccer field, didn't care if all I dug was clad. Nice surprise as my first dig was a '43 S merc. A silver rosie rounded out the day and made silver #30 from this sports field, over the last couple years. Also found the padlock there today.
Whats really odd is that I've never dug a single ring on this field.
On the way home, I noticed the village had just put in new sewer pipe along the railroad tracks. I saw broken glass and decided to investigate. Dozens of broken bottles, a couple broken inkwells, insulators, lots of corktop medicines, all broken, they must have dug through an old dump. I did score one undamaged keeper.

Awesome finds. I'm rather partial to the padlock and relics like that. You just don't see the ornate designs and passion that goes into creating something in this day and age; just take a look at the bottle. Sounds like that soccer field has been quite good to you over the years. This week's weather is suppossed to be much cooler so I hope that you are able to take advantage and get out there more. HH
