Default I'm on the board......

Well, I reached my goal for the season. My goal was 1 silver coin. I did get over 100 of em last year, but I just have no idea where I'm gonna find any anymore......
Today after my 10 hour shift I got home and the ole lady was headed out to nephews ball game .......BINGO
So I grabbed my gear and ran out the door.
It was raining and 35, and I figured I had about 35 minutes of daylight left....
I'd been wanting to have another crack at a house I had hit in December....the yard had 5-6 inches of snow on it back then also.....
I only managed two good high tones......The silver quarter was only 4-5 inches inn the dirt, but I was impressed that I got a chirp from on top of the snowline......
The lock is from a week ago from a field adjacent to an old cemetery in Florida. It says PAT 1891 ! Not sure if that necessarily means its that old, but cool anyway.......

What a great hunt! Your a madman! Unstoppable! Congratulations on that silver Q!


Detecting is the study of Mankinds interaction with topography, the untrustworthiness of pockets, and metals desire to return to the Earth from whence it came.

Nice hunt! Looks like most of the snow will be gone in the next couple days. That dirty 30 should find you some new sites. Good luck in 2017!

That pic of your quarter find is hardcore! Way to get a jump on Greatday05 Like that lock too!!

Metal detecting is something I do when I probably should be doing something else!
