After a hot unproductive hunt , then a rainout, got back out to a "hunted out" spot. Focused on the edges and hard to reach nooks. Found a few interesting objects going in and coming out found a coin that's been on my bucket list and I never thought I'd find one.

A Rosa Americana and in incredible condition. In the past I pulled two almost blank KG's from this spot but this is so sharp I couldn't believe it.

Nice Leather ornament and some other odds and ends.

mbcuce didn't mention that he also found a Woods Hibernia earlier this year. It's not in nearly as good shape, but that's pretty impressive to have both. I still can't get over the condition of this one.
