Default River Relic Hunting - Diving for bullets and the nicest "no date" Large Cent you've ever seen

Hey guys, I had another awesome day river detecting yesterday. I got a handful of dropped bullets and a nice, shiny Large Cent with no date. Here is my second video attemp. Thanks! HAPPY HUNTING!

Way cool! That middle bullet is special. Looks like a cleaning bullet and fired.

Small one is cool too. Either a buck from a buck and ball round, usually confederate, or a pistol round.

Thanks! I'm currently using the Fisher CZ-21. I've used the CZ-20, and the 1280-x also. These are all good, solid river hunting beasts.

The Large Cent and the Williams Cleaner were the deepest at 25 feet. I found them next to each other in a deep channel. The others were from 6-20 ft.
