1652 Pine Tree Three Pence
Took the T2 out to Cob Cove for the extra low tides
I've hammered this site for years.
Used the 5" coil, my new grey ghost headphones and poked thru the iron patch,
(think you know iron? imagine the main drag of a shipyard in use for 400 years !! )
The headphones make a world of difference in picking up those little squeaks.
Talk to Mike at Woodland Metal Detector Sales for his special pricing on these
Pulled lots of small targets down to the size of a single birdshot pellet, half the size of a pea.
Found a 1652 Pine Tree Thruppence! only need a SixPence to complete the set.
and a toasty 1828/1830/1838 ?? halfdime,
Argentina 20 Centavo, same from 1895-1940, after cleaning, I see 1899.
Garfield and Arthur Political button, this would date 1881 I believe.
Odd buckle, 19th C I think. Police Special Whistle, man, is it LOUD !!
Pewter spoon fragment, Scallop design, it's an oldie.
A bunch of buttons,two backmarked 'G crown IV The Kings'
got half a dozen of these already.... popular button
an ornate one piece brass, two pewters and a blowhole,
the crustier pewter has three 'pimples' or maybe a floral design.
That's it for today,
looking for my 8 Escudo Tomorrow HH All !!

Now I know what that creature was in the water that I seen in the video a few years ago... It was a New Hampshire MASS Tree Sniffer.
I don't think I'd detect anywhere else if I was you!

A flipin' Pine Tree !!!! How awsome is that !! I must agree with IP on metal detecting no other place until this one is void of non-ferrous targets. I will be voting BANNER as well !
