    First Plate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I went out in East TN and met Ironman & Richard from Backwoods detectors for a Saturday hunt. Richard not only sold me my detector but showed mw how to use it. It started out well as I found 3 ringer within the first few minutes. I then found a j hook and a couple pistol balls. I was in a section of a field I had hunted before when I got a good signal on VDI around 46. I dug a plug and rescanned the hole and now VDI was solid 94. I was already about 12 inches down. I used pinpointer and my Lesch digger to loosen up some more of the soil and removed it. Richard came over about that time. I could see some green patina in bottom of the hole. I used my pinpointer on it but it did not give any signal. I checked it and it was just dirt with the green patina stain on it. Richard swung his coil over the dirt I had just removed just as it crossed my mind that the target was out of the hole. When We sifted thru the dirt out come this disc. I started the happy dance & I was shaking so much I couldn't talk. I had just recovered my first breast plate. My 13yo son was with me and we both did the happy dance! Once i got it home and washed it off I could see WM Smith Brooklyn on the back. Just goes to show you a site is never hunted out. Thanks for looking and HH.

    Yea that gets my juices going.
    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    Nice plate and other CW finds. It's good when the person who sold you the detector can also show you how to use it
