    My Ace 250 Finds from July 4th to August 7th

    My Garrett Ace 250 metal detector keeper finds from July 4th to August 7th. No gold this month but I did find a couple of pieces of silver - a 1940 Mercury dime and a sterling chain marked "Italy 925". I found over $10 in modern coins, including one more Sacagawea dollar coin which is the second of those I've found this year. That money will be used to buy batteries for my detectors and my pinpointer and will keep me supplied in batteries for the next 2 months. At the top of the photo is a rare and complete early Sergeant Major (Army) hat pin emblem and a copper World War II dog tag that was issued to W. W. Belch in 1944. The latter probably belonged to a soldier who was stationed at Camp Bowie here in Brownwood, Texas during the War. I dug the milk glass Mason jar lid insert while digging for a coin target that was underneath it. I'm well satisfied with my finds for last month and I had a great time finding them. Comment with any questions you have about them and I'll be happy to answer them...except for the exact locations where I found these items. ha. That's a closely-guarded secret.

    You're a true gentleman, dirtdigginfool. ha. I can tell you that all of last month's finds came from only 2 central Texas towns, my hometown of Brownwood and nearby Comanche which was John Wesley Hardin's hometown.

    Thank you, dirtdigginfool. Yes, there is a LOT of treasure out there just waiting for someone to recover it. Thankfully, we got a much needed heavy rainfall here in Brownwood over the past two days so I couldn't get out and detect. Those two days, I believe, make the longest stretch of time this year that I haven't taken my detector out. I used the time at home productively though by researching and finding several new sites in town to work. I'm taking another member of our treasure club with me today. He's been detecting since the 1960s, like me, but he's unable to drive due to being involved in a serious accident a year or so back where he was a passenger. He also uses an Ace 250 so we should have fun hunting one of the new sites together. Wish us luck!
