    Bet You've Never Seen This Before

    Went detecting today with a buddy named Steve and we hit an area that produced two Gold class rings this summer, so I decided to dig every single pulltab signal. After pocketing about thirty of those precious beauties, I get another pulltab signal and look what appeared in the hole...

    Yes, the tree root decided to grow right through the pulltab! If this had been an actual ring, I would have cut the root to remove it. I cut the pulltab instead. Trust me, no trees or tree roots were damaged in the removal of this target, but a few hundred Aluminum electrons were somewhat inconvenienced!

    My reward today for removing over sixty pulltabs was in the form of a 1924 Merc...

    While walking back towards my car, Steve pull a 1946 Rosie and I get a signal that I expected to be a zincoln. Instead, this 20 Kroner coin from Denmark surfaced!

    A 1958D wheatie surfaced too along with a bling ring and the normal amount of clad so we had a great day out in the field!

    Metal detecting is Like A Marathon, Your Running fast then start Slowing A Bit The You Find Something Interesting And You Pick Up the Pace!!! The Only Difference is If You Are Addicted to this Hobby there Is NO FINISH LINE HH Chug And Red

    Obviously, you saved the root from certain strangulation. You are to be commended. Nice Merc, I love Mercs

    Nice finds SD51. However, I would have really been tempted to pull that root and tab out, sealed it and mounted it on a nice piece of wood for display! Thanks for sharing...

    Nice finds. Actually I have seen that before. Around 15 years ago, I had the same circumstance with a small tree root that grew thru the hole of a token I was digging. Its pretty neat to see how nature takes over.

    I think I attribute my pull tab digs to my 5 gold rings I have found.
    Some of my areas are well hit too.
