Was down about 4 1/2 inches. About 4 feet away got another faint signal. Dug down 'bout 7 inches and got a clad penny. Go figure...



Thanks fer lookin'

Congrats!
That is a sweet Indian! Great shape! And pre-1900 too.

That is a great way to start the year.

Good Luck,
Mark

I soaked it in detergent water for a while to loosen up the dirt. Then I used a plastic fiber brush on the dremel tool to clean it.
