    New permission yields "firsts" for me...

    I was able to get permission today to detect the property of a closed school that is now being used for something different. I know the current site owner, so this is someplace I can go to for a long time, and heís not allowing anyone else to detect there. Sweeeeeet!

    The site was developed in the 50ís, so Iím not expecting this to give up much silver coinage. But it does have the potential to be a clad coin shooter's paradise, along with all the other stuff that kids lose. The amount of high tones I passed over are mind boggling, so thereís no telling whatís there.

    I did a short survey hunt of a couple hours today, and found my first Boy Scout neckerchief slide (current style since the 60ís), my first Kennedy Bicentenial half dollar, and my first Chevrolet owner's return postage guaranteed key fob. I had to get home to go to a meeting, so I spent a few minutes just passing the 6Ē coil over the area...the number of targets was stunning! None of the finds are amazing, but theyíre amazing to me.

    Iím taking the one guy I trust to maintain confidentiality of the site with me on Thursday. He took me under his wing when I started this hobby last year, and got me on properties that are his exclusive permissions. Iím finally able to return the favor, and Iím "well chuffed" to do so. (Digger Dawn would be pleased.

    Looks like some nice finds. I always like finding the Boy Scout Neckerchief slides. They look good in a display case.
