    Hello to all.
    I never start finding good coins until I have hunted the place nearly dry. This place yielded a few wheat ears, a couple of V nickles, one indian head and finally a mercury all afraid and alone. Will see if i can find some of her buddies as the field is cut close with mud showing too. Have about 13 civil war bullets so im hunting that half dime. The merc was in the top 3 inches, but has a plow scrape on her backside. Only three silvers this year. The hundred year old button was nice too. To hot for a coat down here, about 60 and rainy this week. Merry Christmas to all.
    Proverbs 3:5-6 (Trust in the Lord)

    5*Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    And do not lean on your own understanding.
    6*In all your ways acknowledge Him,
    And He will make your paths straight.

    Two real nice finds to wind the year down. What is the history behind the field you are hunting?

    When I hunt fields around here and get away from the old house sites it's pretty clean. You can walk forever without getting a signal. Need bigger coils! Gary

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.

    Thanks to all for the kind words. The silver was 30 yards from the closest house place so it was an isolated find. Put some flagging tape there and will return when the weather dries up. Maybe there are some more. A friend from nearby found a jar of silver coins a few years back elsewhere. Surely that could happen more than once.
