I went out to an old place I have hunted a LOT in the past. I have POUNDED it. It's a very small area in a guy's back yard, wooded. I got a few items. A piece of an iron sword scabbard, a poncho grommet and a few other small items. The best find of the day from this totally hunted out area was a New York Staff Officer's Button with a lot of the gilt on it.
