Holy cow was it a hot and sticky day! I had PT for my shoulder and have been itching to get out so I brought my detector with me. I drove up to the farm and saw that they had turned one of the fields over!!
I went out there with minimal gear and started swinging with my not-so-coordinated left arm... I looked like a mess... But, it was worth it!!!
I was only out for about an hour and a half or so. I went over where I have found a colonial homestead. I found some pieces of stoneware and porcelain sitting right on top of the ground. This was a great start!
First signal was small and tight and pinging in the upper 70s-80s on my AT Pro. I found this small heart. I can't tell if it dates to the same era of colonial, but it sure is a cool find! I saw it as a possible sign of good health and peace, since I have been struggling physically and mentally due to my shoulder injury.

About 5 feet or so away I started getting a nice signal and only about 3 inches down was this beautiful small tombac button with a little detail. Unfortunately, shankless

Another signal I had was hitting solid in the lower 80s. I had a feeling it was something decent, and then I pull this out... A copper nail? ???:icon_scratch: I put the nail right next to another nail I pulled right around in the same area. Weird, I have never imagined I would pull one of those. This this copper/brass?

Here are pics of the surface finds and also the dreaded nail pile :laughing7: Not bad for a short hunt. Can't wait to head back out!!

OH! I also made a friend who hitched a ride for about 5 minutes. I named him Fred... He was a fun fellow

Hey thanks billb. I'm definitely taking my time and trying not to use my right arm at all. I'm thinking of returning maybe sometime this week. We'll see what more I can save from here!

Nice!!! Congrats!!!

Thanks RJ!

The heart was a fairly popular symbol in colonial days and I believe your heart is 18th century like the button and the ceramics.

Thanks, Steve! I'm wondering if it was a pennant or charm. Either way it's cool haha

Thanks, Jeff! The heart is a neat find, I like the odd finds. My "helper" was very talkative! :tongue3:
