Default I wish it was silvers.. but its stuff instead

So did a few hours at a friends property near a old barn ( still standing) built in the 20's. Iron everywhere but as I got away from the barn it thinned out. Found some random stuff, but have permission to go back anytime and there's lots of ground to cover... Had fun, got dirty and was nice to be outside..

I've hunted a few barn areas, and always really trashy and loaded with big iron..better off hitting the plowed fields there..

Dew... Great tip on the cloths lines ... Surrounding field needs cutting again soon, grass is way high making it difficult to get coil close to the ground...

Its a 21 acre property, borders a road that's been there since the 1800s, has a large stream/small river bordering the other part of the property... can go back anytime I want, will be helping fix some fences with my friend there in the weeks to come in appreciation of the permission ..

The way I look at it- if you get outside and get some results- itís a good day. Each piece you find just gives you more experience. Like everyone tells me- the more you get to know your detector- the better you will be with it. So it sounds like a win-win no matter what you find!

Old relics are cool to find, depending what youre into & they make great displays. Its not always about finding silver or old coins, you find what you find, location, location, location.
