I was invited to detect a friend's farm about 45 miles south of Pittsburgh. The place has a house supposedly built in 1879, a barn and some other outbuildings. The house doesn't have much good ground to hunt around it, and it is extremely trashy. But there are two good springs on the property, so I was hoping there may have been an earlier cabin nearby. I got into a small area away from the house and near the spring where I found a few older coins.

Here are the better coins from yesterday - 1863 fatty IHP, 1885 IHP, 1865 two cent piece, and what's left of a KG3.
