Hi Y’all. Working with the new Tnet site vs Tapatalk, hope this comes through.

Made it back to an old site in the park woods that had produced a number of late 1700 - early 1800’s treasures over that last few years. This spot now pops something old at a rate of only 1 item per hour of swinging, but when they pop they are definitely older than most sites produce around here.

I decided to follow some simple advice I watched on a YouTube channel for digging / not digging deep high tones with the Nox. Advice was to only dig if you could get the signal to appear in some form in all directions, vs just one way that tends to be iron.

Today’s signal was deep, under multiple roots and in the sidewall. For sure thought it would be a rusty square nail, so lucky I didn’t scratch it as I had to poke and scrap dozens of times before I finally extracted it.

Here he is held for the first time in 200+ years.

Wiped the dirt away and some nose grease to clean up.

About 10 feet away got another very deep faint but repeating high tone, under a big root popped an old copper.

This old coin has seen better days, but was able to ID.

Also a nice one piece coat button popped nearby.

Finally a couple of nicely detailed drawer pulls popped at a site directly across the road in the park, most likely from occupation 100 years later.

I hope this post works... Lots of great finds from Tnet members lately. The dirt gods are smiling on us. Good luck out there.

Freaking Awesome! Those GWIs you have pulled out of there have been as beautiful as you could ever hope for.
Did you get Banner on the previous ones from that place?

That is a beautiful button that I can only dream of finding where I am. Congratulations on a wonderful hunt. I know the Washington buttons seem to be popping up a lot lately, but that one is so nice I am voting banner. Stay safe and keep swingin.

I love to take a break from swinging by digging and based on the finds, I'd dig every squeek on that site!
Thanks for the post!

Those are some super nice finds. I’m sure it is a dig you will always remember!
