    2 days at the one-room school house

    Hello all, If you remember, 2 weeks ago I was given permission to detect a 19 acre estate that has a one room school house on it built in 1819. I detected briefly 2 weeks ago and got a cool dog tag and a Standing Liberty quarter.......been really crazy last 2 weeks and didn't get to go back until this past weekend......I spent a total of 10 hours between Sat. and Sunday and had a blast....or should I say a copper and nickel blast.....not one silver coin this weekend and I can't begin to explain why......but.....below is what I harvested.... Even though I haven't cleaned anything up yet I hope you enjoy the pics......

    Pic 1 is from 2 weeks ago, Pic 2 is from Sat and Pic 3 is from Sunday and Pic 4 is a general area where I found everything.

    Pic 1 -- dog tag and dateless Standing Lib quarter

    Pic 2 -- 7 Indian heads -- 1871,1872,1876,1880,1889,1902,1905
    3 Buffalos -- 1915-D,1919,1926
    2 two-cent pieces, both 1864 but the nicer one is the small motto variety
    1 V-nickel --1901

    Pic 3 -- (refered to as "Big Coin Sunday" by my brother and hunting partner over the phone....he's out of town on vacation and dying to come home....lol)

    2 Georgivs Cents (or half cents, not sure, dateless)
    4 Large Cents -- 1800,1809,1826,1845 (holed)
    3 Indians -- 1866,1898,1899
    1 Buffalo -- 1934
    1 V-nickel --1911

    Now don't get me wrong, I love Large Cents, but I love silver even more so for you White's owners out there these things were comin' up +86/+87 strong but yet no silver......again, not complaining, just figured on a Bust/Seated/Barber SOMETHING at some point.......but don't cry for me, I'm thrilled.

    Here's wishing you are all in AC with beer in hand as you read this.....Happy hunting all!

    Re: 2 days at the one-room school house

    You had a few great hunts there.

    It's amazing that place is not a historic landmark or is it.

    It should be one.

    I bet there is still plenty to be found there.

    How moist is the ground there right now.

    Good Luck

    Great finds. I really love the dog tag for some reason. Is that a picture of a dog comming out of the house on that thing? Looks like a beautiful place to detect.

    Re: 2 days at the one-room school house

    No silver cause when a shiney thing was dropped someone saw it.... No probably just worth more so people were more careful with them or the kids didn't have them. Anyway, Very cool. Those are Awesome finds. We have been getting a lot of good old coin posts on this forum lately. Nice to see this stuff is still out there(was in your case).

    Re: 2 days at the one-room school house

    Thanks very much all.....I have a lot left to do and hope to get back there tomorrow afternoon although with this heat they are predicting bad T-storms...

    Jer -- Not an official historical spot but yes, it should be......although it seems you can't drive very far around these parts without seeing a historical marker and it's usually because someone famous lived there or a certain battle took place and almost always dates to the 1700's....ground here is still pretty moist, easy, dark soil digging....

    Kierdan -- yes, dog laying in his dog house...It is currently with my car keys for good luck.

    HH all
