    A good find

    Recently using my Bounty Hunter Quick Silver on my front lawn i was searching near a large tree. Got a good strong signal started digging dug maybe 3 inches down and found an oval blue box with an old fashioned "R" on it. Carefully opening it up i discovered it was a ladies compact case maybe about 1930s from REX 5th Ave. the mirror inside was already broken. How ever i did find 7 coins in inside of it the oldest being a 1920 wheat penny. It was the best find for me so far.Click image for larger version.

    Pretty exciting to see something like that come from the ground. Too bad the coins weren't a bit older. Hogge
