I awoke this morning with two all-pervasive thoughts running through my mind.... first off that I haven't found any old coins for a while and second that the guy I metal detected with yesterday morning mentioned that after our club's annual seeded hunt last week a few detectorists returned and 'got all the rest' that the club members missed during the original hunt. Thinking that they probably didn't find all of them I went this afternoon with my 5x8 coil and picked around the rainbird sprinkler heads which tend to mask shallow coin signals when using a big coil and found a few goodies. I didn't dig them at a period site but at least I saved them from the next lawn mowing which is very soon because the grass is very high. Lots of mid-tones overlooked. Thanks for looking. Have a great week hunting all you lucky retired people, be out there again next weekend trying to finally get onto our clubs' gold claim. Take care.

Someone should go around a few tech billionaire neighborhoods and get one of them to join the MD club. Then they can hide a few gold sovereigns in the feild since it's just pocket change to them. Maybe get a really generous one to bury a solid gold Egyptian sarcophagus of a previously unknown Pharoah.

I like it, get a Telluride based patreon to supply fifty dollar gold slugs for field hunts! That sarcophagus comment reminds me of those old Zork text adventure games when I think of solid gold sarcophagi being somehow hauled up a well by one dude with an old rope trying not to be eaten by a Grue because his lantern runs out of juice
