    1838 Seated Liberty...my first!

    After work I decided to go detecting before sunset, and after seeing my first location was "occupied" I stopped at a church on the way home. I dug a ton of nails, then I got a beautiful signal...strong and consistent. Thinking it was likely a modern coin, I popped a two inch plug and there she was...staring at me! I'm thrilled!

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"
