I had to return a powerwasher to Front Royal, Virginia which is two hours away from where I live so of course I had to bring the detector along. Completed errand then passed by a nice little country park tot lot and popped a fatty indian at one inch, after research turns out a Turkey farm was here for over two hundred years before the park was built so thinking they skimmed the top four inches or so off then woodchipped it. Wow goes to show you just never do know whats in the ground...was just wanting to find some quarters to get a coke from the vending machie and ended up with a carved on 1860 fatty indian (my second fatty ever).

Knees started hurting (winter plus being fifty) so I decided to walk a creek in the woods and found two Victory Soda Works bottles (differing eras both broken sadly) a kind of obscure mineral water company out of Vienna,VA. Also got a nice large Milk of Magnesia which is a common bottle but I can get ten bucks for the big ones at the swap meet. Thank you for looking as always, end of season coming so just hammering in the hunts as much as possible until then. This was yesterday but I passed out in my lazyboy and had to recharge. Thinking I am going to start cutting down bottles to make drinking glasses. Happy holidays.

Well done on the fatty, it's always a winning day to get something a lot older at a site. (At least for me)

Making drinking glasses eh? That's really some cutting edge technology you'll be employing. :laughing7:
