Went out to detect a 200 year old resort this hot weekend. It was a hot one indeed. Got permission to detect a 145 year old horse track that I will do this fall when vegetation settles down some and also the ticks. I got covered with them while looking it over. Here are my finds. Hold on. LOL

You have a great site there, I can't see what half of your finds are with my phone, but I can tell they are great.

Now that's one fine day (or week or month) of detecting! Nice to find so many Barbers. Appears they were probably lost in the '30's.

Thanks. The Barber Dimes are between 1903 to 1914. Quarter is 1894
