    Seated Dime, Eagle Button, IHP, 1881 Dohickey

    Made it back to the lime stone foundation site for a 5th short hunt in the last few months. Iíve found a bunch of stuff here from late 1700ís through modern trash, but no keepers have been deep. Tons of iron nails in the soil and rusted sheet metal bits. Most of the keepers have been 2Ē or less, no keepers over 4Ē down. (Some large brass pieces and pie tins were dug 8Ē) Iíve had the best results with the 6Ē coil and sensitivity at 18 max.

    First pretty good signal.

    Also found this chunky piece of serving plate in the hole.

    Awesomeness in my first Seated Dime of the year! 1887.

    Then an ornate dohickey pops out with about the same signal as the dime believe it or not.
