    Hunt started at 0713

    Out of my truck and 'on the ground' about 20 minutes after sunrise for what was to be a memorable hunt. Thankful for the variety and age of items found. I suspect some of the items may date from the 1800s: pickers check, ball button, and the Winchester rifle cartridge. Don't think anyone has detected here before, other than possibly "cherry-picking" quarters; there are just too many good targets.

    Hey L-D,

    The early start was to beat the traffic down into the city. The expressway in gets jammed.

    Hey Qaela4,

    No maker's mark. Been to this site five times now and found three buttons, all with intact shank.

    Hey Ogre,

    Yes. Looks like the merc was dropped a year or two after it was minted, which is amazing since it was minted on one coast and lost on the opposite coast!
