    Upstate Trip Yeilds Tiny Silver

    Finally got a free weekend to go upstate to a friend's massive property with a bunch of friends, one being sugarquartz from treasurenet. My friend has a pretty good understanding of where the old areas are and he took us to the main spots where he though we would find the best stuff. First we checked out an old dump on the side of a hill. We didnt find too much there but another friend pulled out an old mason jar lid that was probably turn of the century. We did a bunch of exploring in the woods and then stopped by an old home site. My first signal was a 1940 rosie and my second was a ring that may or may not be silver. After that i got a couple of wheat pennies. We didnt find too much there since it was loaded with trash, and we moved on. We added some lead and brass to the countryside before lunch and then went back out to find an old road. We stopped our gator type vehicles and started detecting. We found a bunch of old square nails and other junk and continued towards the old road where one of my friends had picked up an 1860s fatty indian on one of the previous trips. We made it to the old road, which was lined with stone walls, and continued to try to find any signals. I finally hit on a tiny signal that was coming up anywhere from 35-40 on my MXT. I had been digging pretty much all signals above iron so i knelt down and started chopping a plug in the rocky, peat mossy forest ground. I flipped up the mossy top and immediately saw a tiny silver looking round thing. I was thinking button, half dime, half reale, and then it fell out on my hand and i saw the beautiful C of the coin that i have been hoping to find since i started detecting. I realized it was a trime and yelled out "F*@!" and "YOU WONT BELIEVE WHAT I GOT!". Both of my friends that were also on the road hurried over and were amazed by the tiny silver three cent piece sitting in my palm. None of us could believe it. Pretty much every hunt that i went on, i would always say that i wanted to find a trime. It was the bucket list of my bucket list and i got it. The rest of the day i felt pretty numb and euphoric from finding the trime. I was in complete disbelief. The next day we split up and two friends went out to look for artifacts while myself and sugarquartz went to follow stone walls in the area close to the where i found the trime. That paid off when we came apon an old stone wall foundation at the end of a stone wall previously unexplored. We got excited when we turned our detectors on and found the ground full of iron. Something that had been absent in most other places on the property. Sugarquartz and I dug up some huge hand forged hinges, square nails and other various iron bits and we decided it was time to go get our smaller coils from our gator. At this time our other friend radioed to us that he was was coming back from looking for artifacts, so we all met up and headed back to the house for lunch. Which lead to racing around the woods in the gators and checking out some other spots. Next time we go we will remember to bring our smaller coils to the foundation in the woods. Hopefully there will be some better stuff there. Now im trying to get back into the grind of Long Island life. I find its really tough to acclimate back into the civilized world after a weekend of upstate freedom. Especially when im looking at this trime all the time!

    around two years ago I watched my buddy pull two trimes out of the ground within 15 minutes or so. That was when we had much lower end detectors... I still haven't found one yet! Nice find!
