    Short after work hunt nets 2 more for the treasure pile

    I got off work a couple hours early today and went door knocking in town, house one and two..no answer.
    House three a nice elderly man answered and gave me the go ahead. It was a small lot but looked promising. The yard was extremely HIGH iron, could hardly keep a threshold, so I went TURTLE slow and was able to squeek out a couple goodies. The very first dig in his yard was a real nice 1919 merc, good start!

    Got 5 wheats, the owl thing, and about 5 clad coins. Finished the yard and no more silver or oldies, then before I left I hit the curb strip and the last dig of the strip was a sweet 1898 barber dime! Perfect two hour hunt, started AND ended with silver!

    Lovely silver ladies! Nice display in the 2nd pic--looks like the wise owl is perched atop your finds. Great site you have there, too.

    Great finds. I especially like Barber coins. (Mainly cuz I don't have any.)

    Wonder why they're so hard to find for me.

    Anyway, good job.

    HH!
    I have to take my detector out for a walk every now & then. If I don't, it starts leaving little piles of pull tabs all over the house!!

    Yep you can tell it never had a coil to the soil. I think the owl is from the Hoot and Holler society. Nice finds : )
