We went to our fav park on Sun. But didn't find a lot. We hit some new areas. I won biggest lid and Bob found a rare blue pull tab! I got an IHP and he got a Wheatie.

Then today we stopped at the school across the street where they redid the sidewalk. Got a couple of wheats.

Then we ventured into the woods where we know of an old foundation. In the past we found an old RR lock and a very old dog tag from the late 1800's. 20210906_123101.jpg
This was our first time back there since upgrading our detectors. We had such high hopes! Got a lot of iron and one V nickle for 5 hours of digging. Found the thickest harmonica part I have ever seen. Also found shell tops, a bed ring and what might be part of a curb bridle? We had a great time out there but cannot figure out why there are no coins. Broke like everyone else I guess! Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Any day out with a detector is a great day.

Sounds like my part of IL is the same. Lots of junk but very few coins. Not good because coins are the real reason I hunt. They must have bartered a lot and didn't need many coins. Gary

Yeah, if coins were our only goal we'd probably have to give it up! The only real gold ring we found at our fav park was so thin I thought it was a toy ring. I have tinfoil thicker than that! Times must have been rough here back in the day! Judging by all the shells and bullets, I'm guessing they weren't buying their food! Still great to get away from it all in the woods. So relaxing!

An Indian and a V Nickel are not to bad for the day. Just being able to get out is fun in itself.
