Amazing day detecting with my friend Kmatch7. We were able to hunt down an old farm homesite from the 1700-1800’s. The usual signs were obvious, brick, pottery, glass, etc, so we knew we were on it. We had about 4 hours of daylight remaining so we made every minute count. We found early 1700’s and early 1800’s coins and buttons. I’ll post pictures so you can see everything. Will be revisiting this spot soon.

Enjoy!

Also, huge Congrats to Kmatch7 for finding his first ever Spanish Reales (1802 Carlos IIII 1 Reales).

Amazing day detecting with my friend Kyle today. We were able to hunt down a old farm homesite from the 1800’s. The usual signs were obvious, brick, pottery, glass, etc, so we knew we were on it. We had about 4 hours of daylight remaining so we made every minute count. We found early 1700’s and early 1800’s coins and buttons. I’ll post pictures so you can see everything. Will be revisiting this spot soon.

Enjoy!

Also, huge Congrats to Kyle for finding his first ever Spanish Reales (1802 Carlos IIII 1 Reales).

All i can say is... the spot your on IS a honey hole of honey holes.

IF i were you i would camp there...
Dont eat or sleep...
And detect till your arm cannot hold a detector anymore.

:)

Just kidding... but i will say this... i hope you realize the absolute KILLER spot you have stumbled upon.

Time to get settled in that spot and seriously down and dirty IMO.

Super well done.
