Mike from MI
Grace and I went water hunting where I recently got the war, and buffalo nickels. Got some more oldies and all of them were deep. The thin brass ring, the wheat penny, a piece of old bracelet, and my favorite find of the day, and old lead soldier.
Also got a matching pair of ear rings about 3 feet apart, another kids ring, some clad and misc. Great fun with my daughter. Some of the trash items were also pretty deep. Met a fella when I got there he was snorkeling with a water machine. I invited him to join us next month at the detecting club meeting. By the way he hangs out on T net, screen name Talon.
