    Digging in the yard

    Had a little time today so I ran my detector around an old mulberry tree in my back yard and within minutes I dug up 2 wheats and a small ring(little kids costume jewelry)......darn! They all came from an area about 6 feet in diameter. I ran thru here quickly before and missed them. I guess slow and low is the way to go. The buttons where dug in a flood
    control area not far from my house. Still looking for silver..haha

    My silver has come when I least expected it. Since you've found 2 wheaties in your yard, some areas of that yard are likely to have silver coin or jewelry. Andi

    Jodee, those buttons are from the 1820s - 1840s. There could quite possibly be a large cent or even a early silver coin in a spot where you're finding those kinds of buttons. You need to spend some time where you found those buttons.

    BTW, I know where Derry is...I grew up in Ligonier.

    I've done more fly-fishing in ligonier than anything but I would definitely like to detect around there sometime.

    Any old yard in Derry, Bradenville, New Derry, or Loyalhanna should have silver coins. Just like in Ligonier, the trick is getting permission. There is a lot of potential in Derry township. A lot of old farms that date to the 1700s.

    I always love to see what people find in their own yards! Those flat buttons are telling me there are old coins yet to be found!

    I definitely agree. I'm gonna have to do some research and keep my fingers crossed. Thanks for the advice and when that first silver is discovered its gonna be cool.
