Hey all, It's been awhile since I last posted.
But I have to show off my largest and oldest spill. It is more exciting to find them in my own yard. Woot Woot..
8 IHP and a Shield nickel....
My property had an old school house on it from 1850 till at least 1900.

Nice 1863 Indian. I'd love to find a Civil War era coin. Fantastic!
Hi Todd, The school house was in use from 1850 to 1900 at least. I would have loved the know what the kids were taught and thought about the civil war. So cool to find pieces of that time in my yard.

Ah there's nothing finer than walking out the door and finding a few keepers.
Congrats on the coppers!

Been living in this place for 8yrs and never have I detected it.
Built on a hill and has 2 ft of gravel fill then the topsoil so the trees look like hydro poles sticking out of the ground.
So I have to walk across the road or over the bank behind the barn. :laughing7:

Hey all, It's been awhile since I last posted.
But I have to show off my largest and oldest spill. It is more exciting to find them in my own yard. Woot Woot..
8 IHP and a Shield nickel....
My property had an old school house on it from 1850 till at least 1900.
