I've had some health issues lately and been unable to get out. Well I've been able to get out the last 3 days. Found old copper and buttons each day. Today I went to the same site I've been beating up. Got in the iron and went low and slow. I was rewarded with this beauty. These are just today's finds. Still running pretty high on adrenaline. Good luck to all. Art
