Hit an old dot in the park woods that was originally owned by one of Gen. Forbes officers in the French and Indian war. This spot is now a busy picnic pavilion. Basically you never know what will pop out of the ground. Lots of trash mixed with iron smelting slag and generations of drops plus its under a major high voltage electrical tower. I’ve been here multiple times and always find a handful of goodies. First time, however, that I have found a coin that could have been dropped by the original owner that passed in 1802. Thx for looking.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Nice old American copper!! I think oldest identifiable draped bust is 1798 which is a pretty common date and as dumb as it sounds, I like that Ike token. Great job!!!!!!!
