    Surprised it wasn’t a -O-. My 3rd one this year. This year has been much less quantity finds but much better quality finds. Lot of bucket listers

    Nice going! A spot that dense with trash will never be hunted out.

    It has 8 large Oaks over 400 years old. Still amazing to go sit the and across the street is a rich subdivision and no one really pays attention. With this new method it could take me years to search it with a 6” lol

    Going in a couple of hours if I hit another old coin I know it’s not a fluke. I’d be that sure with this new program.

    All my coins are from the 40’s.

    1944 War Nickel Attachment 1742204

    3 1940’s Wheats Attachment 1742205

    AND A 1841 HALF DIME!!!!! FULL LIBERTY Attachment 1742206Attachment 1742207 Attachment 1742218 surprised it wasn’t a -O-.

    A 3 ringer!!!! Attachment 1742208 at this site it means a lot to me.

    A Girl Scout pin (thought I was a rare General Service pin until I got home lol) Attachment 1742209

    What a think is a brass match holder. Has red in the inside. Attachment 1742210Attachment 1742211

    Small brass pin Attachment 1742212

    More stuff Attachment 1742213Attachment 1742214Attachment 1742215Attachment 1742216Attachment 1742217

    I alway thought the good stuff if any was deep with the iron all being masked by the modern trash on top. Try speed 8 that half dime was only 3” deep!
    All those finds were worth the drive IMHO.
    The 1841 HD is the BOMB , as you know u missed 'Capped Bust' by 4 short years.

    Love ..'Really' the Girl Scout pin' I don't come across Girl Scout relics 'that I recall'.

    Could the red stuff be from the Match Tip's ?

    Think I stated to you or another 'Netter' I have not found a war Nickle in 4 or so years , but cleaning some coins I found (at some point in the last 3 years . I found a well worn one , heck I was happy with that.
    $
    The Minnie from a historic site is ' Butta'.

    Keep it up , cooler temps should be on the way but I hear they are walking from N Canada. LOL So it could be awhile esp, down there in LA Gator Country .
    Peace Bro.

    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.
