    Dave, the Indians sure came out in nice shape!
    Love the look of those old skeleton keys!

    My passion is hunting relic sites, as I feel the imprint of past lives often lingers there!
    Metal Detectorists finds, are the background noise of antiquity!
    Don't question it . . . just dig it!

    Congrat Dave, that E Trac is smoking those treasures out of the holes!
    When you feel down because you didnít
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.

    Re: todays hunt

    Hey my friend, Are you saying that the 6 times prior hunting that ground you were using a different machine? If so, how do rate the minelab machine to the other? Those are some nice digs there, my hearty Congrats!

    Dave, looks like an old lace hook, a tool like this was used to tighten laces on "old" lace up boots. Back in the UK in the40's and 50's we used to use a tool like this to lace up soccer ball, long before these new fagled bladder less balls

    yes indeed , i hit that yard hard with my minelab SE, and the e-track did much better , deeper targets and separation from iron was great and it was so quiet , i had to wave my ring under the coil to make sure it was working

    Re: todays hunt

    Invariably the first few times I hunt an old site, most of my digging is for the shallow (clad) targets. Now that you've hunted this place 6-7 times, chances are good that only the good stuff remain. I'll bet there are some nice targets still there. Keep us updated!
