    Cool O-M-G! 1st hit of 2018 and its all downhill from here!?

    Well.... I wasn't *really* chomping at any bit.
    I have been frozen out for almost a solid month, but
    I wasn't *really* getting antsy.

    After all, it *had* warmed up for 2 whole days! Right!?!
    That should be enough of a thaw.....right!?

    Still, just in case, I just went pretty much out my front
    door. Staying close, so I could just close up shop
    and go home.

    just in case....ya know?

    Anyhoo...I start swinging and get this strange but
    consistent hit and I was really just planning on nothing
    but "quarter" hits today. To start the year..you know.

    I decide to dig this shallow, iffy hit.

    First hit, first dig, and...the shovel bounced off! CR@P!
    I was hoping for a little better. LOL But, since I started
    I figured to finish. I finally pounded the shovel in deep
    enough to *BREAK* a piece of ground open! And there,
    lo and behold! Lay this:

    "OH MY GOD!!!"

    I *really* need to get some nitro pills! LOLOL

    The very first thing I did after getting it out of the
    hole was to run it by my magnet............it stuck!

    After getting my heart rate back down, I moved on. But, I
    changed my location. After seeing that the ground was
    indeed still frozen. I concentrated on southern facing
    hills and some woods. Easier....

    For those who know toys, this is the back of the emergency
    vehicle.

    In any case, this was a good start to what I'm hoping to
    be a fine year of "walks".

    Happy New Year folks!

    Glad you got out. The object in the bottom of the first and second picture looks like a finger pick. Like the ones used to pick a banjo.Click image for larger version.

    In true Blingie style, he's after the shinny shinny!
    Fishy is the auto aficionado!
    The matchbox truck needed a little rescuing it's self.

    I'm liking the wise owl pendant thing.
    Jesus must love you if you were able to get all that out of frozen ground! .....with out a backhoe!
    I guess He was trying to jump start your detecting season with a little glimps of what can be, glad you didn't face plant when you first saw the coin.

    The people that make those fakes have no idea what it does to one of us when we find one....its just not right.

    Well done for a frozen tundra walk! I don't think i'm going to try the same thing here yet.

    Our foot & a half of frozen snow was washed away (not the piles) by the 3" of wind driven rain, but as you look out over the grassy areas and see lakes of standing water that are not going anywhere anytime soon....its still backhoe season here.
    But after tonight you will be able to skate on those large frozen areas of standing water.

    Don't need a backhoe. Did you see my equipment list?

    The emergency truck didn't have "Hot Wheels" on what I found, thought maybe the numbers would mean something to someone.

    Thanks!

    That's what I thought too. There is a patent number that's almost worn away. "National Pat. No. ?787136". If that helps.
    Non-magnetic too.

    Thanks!

    I thought it was a matchbox truck because of "MB" 402.

    My bad, i will review your equipment list. 😀

    Kudos! To Msbeepbeep!!

    Attribute to failing eyes. But, on the driver's door, just under the window? It says very plainly, "Matchbox Alarm Unit" !!! LOL
    Thanks for the help!
