    Nice Hunt With Some Silver

    I was off of work today, so I took the detector out for a ride in the truck. We stopped at several empty lots, where the houses have been torn down, as well as a couple of public places.

    I dug a lot of modern coins, and assorted other targets.

    This target was deep and made a nice tone. Itís half dollar size, and has a reeded edge, however... it turned out to be an aluminum bicentennial token. Bazinga. Heartbreaker.

    This looked good too, bigger than a quarter, and heavy... turned out to be a Mexican coin from 1970, bazinga again.

    Please chime in if you can ID this little metal hand. Some red paint remains on it.

    I never find anything old, but I believe that this is a colonial shoe buckle frame. There is a place on the back of the smaller piece, where the pin would have gone. Please chime in, if you know better.

    When this clod of dirt popped out, I was glad to see a silver disc. I flicked the mud off of it, and sure enough, silver dime.

    A half dozen wheaties, and a Ď39 dime were the best coins I could find.

    This target made a sweet sound, and as soon as I saw it, I knew why.
