    I dug some OLD TIME today i thought it was gold !

    Today i wanted to mess around with my DFX play with some numbers iam always trying to improve my hunts so i figured i would take a short drive to a old farm house i have hunted many times i know its loaded with iron plus a lot of silver coins in the past plus some really nice old relics , my first swing i had a mixed signal from iron to nickle so i turned the other way same thing since it was only 5 inches i dug it my first hand full of dirt i had the target i could feel a round object i thought it was a dollar piece nope as soon as i saw it i knew it was a pocket watch i said wow Gold watch it was so dirty i couldnt tell until i got home and cleaned it off that watch was packed with dirt roots you name it 2 hours to clean it off ,all i can see on the watch is Pat.D. Apr. 17 1877 BS or RS ? or Pat.D. Apr.1777 BS or RS ? darn rust right where that year is .Anyway its a keeper my first pocket watch or whats left of it Dd60
