    Did my research to find owner who happened to live next door,
    so I knocked & a woman answered the door, so I said,
    "there used to be an Old Grove next door" she said "Yes"
    I asked "Is it OK If we Metal Detect there ?" she said "Yes",
    I Thanked her & We went at it.

    Later her Husband drove over, told me the History of the place,
    and said shortly after it closed for good, there was always
    someone detecting there, but it's been 9 or more years
    since.

    Well you would never know anyone detected it, other then the Speed I got a Yes
    from the landowner, told me she was not new to being asked.

    Well, sorry to have left you down buddy..........LOL!! I think I was just returning the favor.....remember Tremont 2 years ago....I asked you to please find a D too......oh well as long as we keep diggin' silver!!

    My total for today was 19 wheats (the oldest was a 1921 and the rest were 40's and 50's), 2 Jefferson nickels (both from 1956), 1 memorial, the 1943 plain Mercury dime the 1957 Silver Rosie and the lone Indian Head cent. After a light cleaning the Injun still looks like a 1909......can't see the mint mark area yet, sure hope an "S" shows up there after I soak her. Of course the damn "D" will show up for me........on the wrong coin!!

    Congrats again on the Finds today Jeff!!

    THANKS ALL



    LOL Dave !

    it can only be a plain or an S on an 09 Indian
    S mark will be bottom back under wreath.


    Jim was nice detecting a mowed yard after the last place.

    this one is loaded with iron.

    Now I have to work on Defunct grove #3

    Hopefully the landowner is receptive, I'm starting to like
    these groves I've never been to
