Still a pretty good week - Friday
I went out early Friday afternoon. Steve and russy came out also. Here are the pieces (photos w/red background) I found while we hunted an area not to far from Scraperville.
Steve and russy's stuff can be seen here.
I also went out for just before sunset Friday evening and picked up this piece of pumice.

Great looking finds. What do you think the grooved piece is?

Some very nice finds. The grooved piece is interesting.

One of the things I learned about hunting artifacts is that Steve's truck is an artifact magnet (his John Deer's too). It seems very often there's something good wherever he stops - he'll usually spot something within a few feet. Last evening Steve's truck wasn't there but there where new tire tracks from it of into the field. I decided to walk them and, like I said, it's a Magnet. The pumice piece above was in between the tracks, then a point just where the track stopped and a little further back another along side track. Thanks Steve.
The other stuff I had to find on my own.
And no hunting today - it's raining - hard - for hours.
Yeehaw! It looks like next week might be better than "pretty good".

Very interesting those are some nice goodies great colors and material. Real nice pottery rim shards. That coin in your hand sure look's like a "REAL OLD" ancient trade token to me. Hard rain sounds good that spells more artifact's.
