    A day of many buckles, a large cent, silver coins, and do-dads

    I don't think I can recall a day with so many buckles. One after another they kept popping out over the course of the day...

    It's been too long since I've gotten out. Life's been busy, but today the stars aligned and I got out into the bramble with my buds, Bartek and Charlie.

    Conditions were bad but we all got a few keepers. I didn't get the oldest silver coin, but I did get the oldest coin. Also found a sweet Tombac button but my kids ran off with it into my yard, and lost it, while the fellas and I were enjoying a cold one.

    Overall it was a good day well spent with my buddies. Enjoy!

    Good digs

    Nice hunt. Love the old buckles. I guess the coins are nice too. Those cold ones sure go down good when you're staring at silver and rust. Glad you had a good day

    Thanks. And yes, those cold ones do go down well. We had finds strewn out whilst drinking beer. So my kids grabbed a few relics and the pinpointed and played in the dirt. No more tombac

    Tics and Thorns. Charlie must be loaded with them after his three naps in the weeds.

    Considering the location I was hoping for more finds, but this was plenty to keep me happy 'till the next hunt. Thx for looking

    It was a good day. I thought that LC was garbage. It was double pinging on the surface in the woods. It must have been no more than an inch down. Cheers buddy

    Nice digs . At least now you have one more thing to search for in your yard when you get bored
    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"

    I think this area was so poor way back that very little coinage was lost, which is why I think we found mostly relics. Thanks for looking
