    Pounded Area of where a school once stood, still giving up the goodies........

    I got out for hour and a half before I had to go to work.
    I went to where an old school once stood for 60 years.
    I have pounded all 4 corners of this property over the years starting in 1986 thru 1996 then hit it hard
    for the last 5 years too.
    It amazes me that I still get goodies from there.
    Late Last year I pulled a 1919 CLASS RING from there along with several more silver.

    TODAY:
    I decided to go there and I was in the mood to listen for the not so good signals in 2 areas that
    I have gone over at least 50 time ( I'm not $h*ting I have pounded these areas, I have many many hour put here ) So has a few other guys too.
    Every spring I go back to see if the frost and winter might have changed things.
    I got this real iffy target at 6 inches 3-38 2-39 5-36 ( etrac ) nothing solid at all.
    Dig down a bit and on the 2nd dig, out popped a 1903 I H.
    10 minutes later I walked to the other corner.
    Dug a clad dime then about 3 feet away I got a single bleep and the numbers were jumping 1-44 3-36 7-32.
    Dug it up and again out popped a 1906 IH. SWEET !!!!
    10 feet away I got a jumpy signal this time it was mostly a null sound and a high tone broken up signal 1-47 10-50 3-48
    in only one direction but it said it was about 7-8 inches
    So dig out a bit and out popped a piece of Iron ( Square Nail I think ) Stick the probe it to double check the hole and she
    let out this high flutety sound solid as can be... next scoop the dirt pile reveals the nice silver reeds of the coin.
    I said come on be an 1800"s Barber since it's on my wish list....After gentle pushing some dirt off it I saw the year 1945. Damn.... I gotta say that this ETRAC is a hell of machine to be able to get the silver with a large piece of iron next to it.
    I was happy that I pulled another piece of silver from the area.. I'm sure there is more... After all this area is one of my top 5 areas for producing many silver and other goodies....There getting harder to find.....though
    Sorry for the long winded story but I was so surprised to find these 3 finds....
    One thing for sure.... " NO PLACE IS EVER HUNTED OUT "

    Ah grasshopper. Looks like like you're learning well the E-Trac machina. Maybe a little toooooo well (jk) Glad you could hear that rusty iron/silver sound. There are many, and I mean many more like that out there that other machines will not get.

    Congrats on a great hunt !

    Only if there's a parking lot there and the snow melts. I'd only hit those areas Bob.

    great job picking out those goodies, with that many hours put into the place it's gotta be really tough!

    No one finds stuff like that at that old school house anymore. Sounds like an egg saturation.

    Nice hunt!
