    Done with Druid

    Another adventure at Druid Hill Park on Friday and it is my last for some time. I don't want to fight the trash anymore, so I will be looking for 'greener pastures' in the City. Got an IHC and some older wheats, but my favorite find is this .64 cal musket ball weighing in at 404 grains. It is not uncommon to find Civil War era bullets in this park.

    I love find CW lead in public parks. I found most of my 3 ringers in a spot in a park that I stumbled upon. Congratulations

    Finding a "hot spot" is awesome. It's happened for me at this park before. Been hunting with a number of other detectorists two of them dug a minie ball; not exactly what you'd expect to find here.

    But I assume you will keep it on the list and return again, seems to have plenty of potential for gold left?

    Thx dognose! The musket ball is my fave for the day. You dig a lot of bullets in this park and 99% of them will be modern; this one made the "relic" category.

    Thx RVRoamer66! "Greener" for me will be a new spot, maybe less trash, and some new discoveries, maybe even some older items.
