Went back to the festival grounds to do some more swingin. Always hopeful, but with the knowledge that it may all just be junk and clad. Spent 5 hours wandering over spots occupied by tents during the festival, hoping for a deep oldie from areas I have not gridded and new losses.

In 5 hours I found 94 coins with a face value of $6.25, a toy car, a 20 cent euro coin, a railroad mashed penny, a mangled brass whatzit, cans, tabs and junk oh my.

The brass whatzit has threaded fittings like plumbing and a ball joint to swivel in the middle. It’s built like plumbing, but not like any plumbing I’ve ever seen. No idea what it is, anyone have a clue?

Took my weekly trip to camp. Only 1 more week before the campers arrive and I wait until August when camp ends to go back up. Most of the ungridded areas are program areas and around buildings so I was not expecting a great day, but you don’t know until you do the swingin what’s in the ground.

I spent 6 hours with the CZ21 and managed to find 163 coins with a face value of $12.84, 27 camp tent pegs, a stainless fork, another leather stamp, 4 scout pins, a Lt. Colonel oak leaf, a cut down penny (it was cut to the size of a dime), a Freedom token, a silver ring, a lead die, two 50 Euro cents, 10 shield and sunburst tokens (4 large and 6 small), a Webelos neckerchief slide, a toy Volkswagen without wheels, some can tabs and only a little trash.

The silver ring is a little out of round, but easily fixable. It is marked 925 and has a makers mark. Not sure who the maker is or how old, but camp is only 42 years old so prob not real old.

The ground the camp is on has been occupied for a long time. I have found a large cent, flat buttons and round balls from the original settlement. This lead die is like one I found several years ago at a civil war site. It was found fairly close to the area the other older finds were located in camp. I’m confident that it is indeed a piece of the camp’s older history. It may have been brought to camp by a scout and lost, but I’m thinking it wasn’t. No way to know for sure unfortunately.

I also spotted a new friend. He stayed nice and still while I took his picture. He is a hooded warbler. They winter in the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America. They must not be real common in our area because he is the first one I have ever seen.

School is out so I can detect the middle schools during the week now. I went to one and started swingin and after about 50 minutes the custodians came out and started mowing the field I was on so I picked up my markers and moved to another part of the grounds. Not a lot of luck there so when they finished the field I went back and because of time I just did some wandering around.

All together 5 hours with the CZ21 and found 111 coins with a face value of $8.11, a US dollar coin, 2 New Zealand coins ($1 & $2), a silver earring, a toy car, can tabs, can slaw, 2 whole aluminum cans some foil and aluminum bottle caps.

Why do these stupid foreign coins have to be gold colored? In the past 3 hunts I have found 5 gold colored coins. And each time one pops up my heart starts to race, Did I finally find a gold coin after 20 years of detecting? Then reality strikes and it’s a big letdown. At least the ones I am finding are worth something. 1 of the 20 cent euro coins, 2 of the 50 cent euro coins, and New Zealand coins, a 1 dollar and a 2 dollar. Still a lot better than a penny.

The earring is marked 925 on the post that goes in the ear piercing. Part of the clasp is broken off, but it’s silver so I’m happy.

Nice piles of clad, silver, more foreign coins, a nice oldie and more scout camp goodies. Short week this week and it will be a short one next week with doctors for my wife and family gatherings for Father’s Day. Thanks for looking, stay safe, good luck and may your coil lead you to good things.

Tnt-hunter, Your arm must be sore after so much digging...you are really cleaning the campground up!

Yes my old shoulder gets sore sometimes, but you have to keep swingin to bring in the goodies. And yes I am cleaning the place out pretty good.

Thanks to all, stay safe and keep swingin.
