No pics, but about 70 cents total in clad. This is on the property of my apt. complex. I keep quiet about hunting here since management would frown on me digging on the property.

Plus it's already been spent on beer and p..., uh lady folk!!

My house is an old farmhouse from 1896. The grounds are an absolute minefield of metallic JUNK ... Tough hunting, but, I have pulled some cool stuff, and continue to.

Some of my favorites include a still-working 1940s-50s Kilgore cap gun, a 1969 local dog license tag, a Victorian jewelry pin, two silver dimes (one being a Merc), two Indian cents (1902 and 1909) and some Wheaties ranging from 1919 to 1940.

My place is about 20, but I have the same type of situation.

I've hit mostly building materials and hamburger foils! I did find some recent clad that I likely dropped myself.

The thing with my stuff is that they are actually worth something all of it is 175+ yrs old. And from the US army!!!!! This has a lot of archaeological and historical value. The my half dime I found is worth twice as much a Morgan BTW!!
