Haven't searched much the last three years but visited a farm house foundation and two 1900ish farm houses that are rentals. Found the indian head and a 1944 wheat cent at the foundation. Just the ash and trash coins at the two farm houses. Two weeks ago, I visited the friend's house that encloses/adds on to early 1800's cabin. Found the silver there. My first silver dollar.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Awesome IHP and welcome to the club on the $ coin. I'll bet it was lost mid last century and used to be a good luck, carry with me all the time type piece.
Thanks for the post and HH ALL
