    I think I did. It's at a large (40 acres-?) campground with permanent large travel trailers and a tent camping area. Right to the N W of the campground is the Platt River on the edge of this campground. I would have asked the mgmt if I could detect around the area, but I had a large old neighborhood street tear up of 2.25 miles (4.5 miles both sides) to detect last summer......and in 2015, the remaining tear up of 1.5 miles (3 miles both sides). Then there is also another section of an old neighborhood tear up (2 miles-?) next to the county fairgrounds (1912) scheduled to be torn up this coming yr.

    Pretty good. I was there from May to the 1st week of August. My detecting finds were I H cents-'97, '01, '03, '04 / V nickels-'88, '00 / Buffalo nickels-'15-D, '18, '27-D, '37 / Jefferson nickels / '43-D, '44-S (War-35% silver) / Seated Lib dime-'87 / Barber dimes-'03, '14 / Merc dimes-'43-S, '44-D. Also a 1900 Canadian dime-(Sterling silver) I also found a large 1-1/2" brass tax token...."Pay Cashier-50-Joe Meyers". I researched it and found out that Joe Meyers was Morrison's County Treasurer (Little Falls) from 1901 to 1909. I donated it to the Morrison County's museum....in which they knew nothing about any such token and they were very thankful.

    I use a White's DFX and have used it for 13 yrs now. Well, in 13 yrs, many improvements have been made in detectors and maybe I should look into a change....I'll think about it.

    My back-up is a Tesoro DeLeon.....quite a powerful detector. It was a used yr old (New=$600) and I got it for $300 shipped. A good thing is that the Tesoro also uses (8) AA batteries as the DFX.

    Interesting little town. Thanks for posting it. I guess it was first called Royalton.

    Hard to tell what was there 100 + years ago. It would be a good place to look if you can get permission.
