  1. 1st Hunt of the Year - Seated Dime

    Off to a good start for 2022! Cold and windy here today was supposed to go fly fishing but we cancelled due to the strong winds. Went back to my honey hole in the woods to see if I've missed anything with the 6" coil, so I had the stock coil on, wasn't expecting much. Was going to hit the...
  2. Finally Found A Silver Quarter

    I've been whining about not being able to find a silver quarter anywhere in my short detecting career, I've tried parks, homesteads, farms, yards.... I feel lucky in my finds, as I've found civil war items, capped bust dime, etc. But I couldn't pull a 1964 or earlier quarter anywhere. I've...
  3. Brushy Farm Hunt this Morning, M1859 Spur?, Misc Buttons, Wheats, Jewelry, Horse Bit Piece

    Took a day off to get some stuff done, but squeezed in a short hike to an old farm I've hit a few times before. This time I slowed way down and hit the brushiest spots you can imagine, thorn bushes, stickers, briars etc. I'm sure my wife will complain about burrs in the laundry later this...
  4. Short early morning hunt to honey hole; first shield nickel and 2nd half of locket

    Had tons of chores but I spared a short time to hit a nearby honey hole early in the am. It's a suspected early church picnic spot for my locale. It's very brushy and I only go there late fall and winter. I did ok for the short time I was there. My second signal was my first ever shield...
  5. Nice Day Detecting Old Farm... Sterling Silver Fork Postal Button Small Silver Buckle

    Beautiful day in the Ozarks, back to a farm I've only been on once as it just opened up to be able to get to it. On the way through the woods i was casually swinging and got a nice 19 signal, figured its a typical 12 gauge brass shotgun end, nope, its the small silver plated buckle. Looks like...
  6. Property marked "US" on 1800's plat map

    Anyone seen this before? I can't find on any map or photo where there has been a structure on this acreage but I see a few signs that make it worth checking.
  7. My 2nd Barber Coin Found 1894 Dime

    Back to where I found the civil war token a few weeks ago, an old farm down the road. The grass needs mowed, they dont do it often here so it made detecting slightly more challenging. I've never found a silver coin here but I've found indians, silver jewelry, civil war token, etc. I knew...
  8. Down The Road After Work, 1st Civil War Token

    Finally got some rain here, ground has softened up and it feels like fall in the evening. Which means I had to escape after work. There is an old farm down the road which has a lot of history and trash which is public land now. Ive found an 1800's button, silver jewelry, horse tack, etc here...
  9. Short After Work Hunt Produces Only 1 Coin: 1834 Capped Bust Dime

    Another nice day here after so much rain, got the itch to go do something after work. Went detecting someplace close by where I've been before. On an old hand drawn map near a house it showed a large garden or something similar in the 1850's. Was running the 6" coil in Park 1, dug 2 pieces of...
  10. Horse Parking Area for Old Church Gives Up The Goods

    Old Church a few miles from home is next to some public woods. On the 1950's aerial photo I spied a trail leading off the back corner of the church lot into the woods, in this direction were several 1800's farms back in the day. I figured there might be a few good items near the corner of the...
  11. 6" coil in the nail bed settings

    Love the small 6" coil my EQ600, great for dense woods and up close to cellar holes. I keep feeling like i'm missing something in the settings. Anyone have suggestions, should I be running hi sensitivity or low? Typically I'm in Park 1, ground balance on clean soil, noise cancel, sensitivity...

  14. Strange square metal item with black inlays?

    Found this deep on some land that had past hunting, farming, and mechanical past so it could be anything. It's about 3/4 by 3/4 by 3/8 and has a black dot on each long side. Not magnetic, rang up around brass or copper range on equinox. There are not threads in the center hole. Thanks for...

  16. First seated anything

    Hit an area that has a lot of activity now but used to be an 1870s or earlier farm. There are pull tabs and can slaw everywhere. Ballparked where the front yard of the house used to be, tall grass. Still jumped in there, after a couple minutes had a solid 23 in both directions, seemed too...

  18. Digging Cans Finally Pays Off: Eagle Breastplate !!!!!

    Ok guys n gals, headed back to my cheap jewelry cache location to see if i missed anything. Started from the opposite direction this time along the road. I'm a notorious cherry picker, I mostly dig clean clear signals after I get tired. I know it's terrible, but it's the truth. This time I...
  19. Cheap Jewelry Hoard Located (Cache, Stash, Bonanza?)

    Updated my nox 600 to the 3.0 software last night, wanted to take it somewhere today to try it out since the weather was cool. Needed a place that is mowed as i promised my wife no more ticks or chiggers, so I stay out of the woods in the summer. Picked an old farm field that is now public...
  20. Discovered a Spring, went back with detector. First powder flask.

    Son and I went for a hike, saw a small stream running good that headed uphill into the woods. Followed it and found a neat spring last weekend. Thought about it all week, headed back there the first chance I got. Digging everything, was finding shotgun shell headstamps, not much new trash at...
