    Thx HighV! I'm still a coin shooter at heart, I only dig the mid and high tones, no iron for me. So I guess I'm not a true relic hunter, yet... FYI, the dirt is nice and moist under the snow in the W PA woods! I'm sort of shocked that I was able to pull so many high tones in a short 45 min hunt through 4 inches of snow and then another inch or so of leaves. I could not sweep into the snow because of the ice crust, just glide on the surface.

    Hey guys! I'm extremely productive in the woods if you must know. I can participate on a conf call with my iPhone earbud and still be swinging through the brambles. I only need one earphone for my detector...

    Top 2 inches is crusty out in the yards+fields. Your finds are totally justified by hard work and research.

    My cavalry expert says that seat shield could be late civil war to the 1904 model saddle. Said they didn't change much and the abbreviated "Inch" doesn't mean anything.

    If its close enough to get to and have time to hunt during lunch hours then i would for sure pay it some more visits sooner or later. If your still pulling that much out then theres a big chance on a old coin or two hiding there yet. If the hits aren’t the best just keep cleaning it out. May be something great under some junk. The spot has a great age to it. Just my opinion though!
