Default Rings around the Rosie...

Went back this morning to the 1930's school to continue working my way around the perimeter of the old ballfield...had a bit over 2 hours of digging done when kids and their parents began showing up to play a game, so with the day already a success I packed up and left. I was getting tired anyway from all the work only 3 pieces of trash turned up with the coins I was digging, and I dug a lot of clad...$8.14 worth, including one of those dollar coins...also recovered 8 wheats along with the silver and sterling silver #124, sterling #23 and #24... That's all I have for today and probably for the next several days as the heat/humidity is returning and I have other things to do...but when the next hunt takes place I won't be using the Explorer II. I'll either be out in the water with the Sword...or dirt hunting with a #*%...&@! As always...thanks for the looks and Happy Hunting!
