    Got it!

    Retired on April 4th and I'm loving it! Time to do things I want! Been metal detecting a lot. Here's the finds from my last 3 hunts. One is a bucket lister that was high on my list!

    Went to one of my honey holes and it produced as always. Found a lot of wheats and then found this 1911 Barber.

    Next day went to the spot I found the old militia button by the creek and found this Canadian one cent from 1886.

    Then yesterday I went back to the creek spot. Set myself up and started moving. All metal mode and I was getting iron signals left and right. Then I got a solid 24 on the Nox. Dug it up and got this!

    My first seated! I dug this in the first hole of the day! She's old and tarnished but she's beautiful to me! I had the goal of finding my first seated this year and I did it already! 1853! Then it started raining so I quit and went home a happy man! Going back today gridding the place.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
