0AAC13E4-A138-4004-BA19-6D73E130DB63.jpg C214C627-1EA3-4EC6-9BC2-A4EE8A6A5C20.png I was going out today to my fort with a good friend of mine but he had something come up at the last minute so it was just me today if you don?t count my permissions lap dogs. This particular yard has a dirt driveway that has produced numerous buttons and coins over the years. My best 2 coins from the driveway was a 1774 half real and a 1797 King George 3 cartwheel penny but no coins recently. As I entered the yard I did a quick sweep of the driveway to no avail so I hit the other side of the yard for about an hour with no luck. It was getting hot by this time and already in the mid 90s so I thought I would cut my hunt short. On the way out I decided to change detector coils to my 5 x 8 coil due to the large amount of beer tabs and other junk and iron underground. My first good reading was and 84 and about 10 inches deep. I was surprised to pull out this very worn 1889 Liberty V nickel. Although worn she?s still a pretty lady. The next good signal was a 77 and only about 4 inches down. Thinking it was a piece of junk, I was very surprised and very happy to uncover this coat size Eagle D button with a nice patina. The shank is intact and has a Scovill Waterbury back mark. I stuck it in my pocket and thanked my friends for another fun day of detecting. After that I decided to leave and save the next finds for another day. Thanks for looking and happy hunting!!!
