In Aug.08 I went with friend to his in-laws property and I MD'ed a mid 1800s school/church. The property was over grown with small trees and weeds. The building still stands proud but has alot of weather and vandal damage. I had just received my Ace 250 several weeks earlier and had only used it around parks to learn it. I thought I would search in all metal mode(no! no! some of you are thinking I know what I'm doing) But I did it so I would know what was iron and would'nt dig it. I had alot of mixed signals and if it showed any iron I DID'NT DIG IT.....
What I did find was 1896 I.H, 1863 Union For Ever tokin, 1921 Dog tag, and a ring of unknown metal. I have'nt figured out how to post the pics on here but I did save them to my album.
P.s Also a NEWBIE mistake was to try to polish up the I.H but at least I left the tokin alone!!!!! As soon as the snow melts you can bet I'll be back and this time DIG EVERYTHING!!!!!!!
