Exclamation Unbelievable Finds at Old Fairgrounds

Finally got on a good spot, this was a late 1800s fairgrounds that is just woods now. I had high hopes for this property, and it did not disappoint.

If I hadn't dug this stuff myself, I might not believe it! Luckily I had a friend with me and he got to see the stuff come out of the ground too... to say this was a hunt of a lifetime is an understatement if you ask me...lol

Of course I dug some junk-- this is only half the junk I dug.

As you can see this one one of my best hunts, it was a beautiful day for diggin and after 9 hours of hitting it hard, this is what I came up with.

My buddy also pulled an 1890s wedding ring, merc dime, 1883 Indian Penny, 1904 Barber Quarter and a few other odds and ends.

It was an epic day, thanks for checking out my finds!

Wow great finds! I was a grounds keeper at a 100 year old fair grounds when I was young for five years. Always wished I would have taken up detecting then. Unfortunately a 20 year old has other hobbies on his mind. Great job.

Huge congratulations!
That is the hunt of a lifetime, I did not see that Morgan coming, and just with the other coins it would have been the hunt of the year.
That is the third time I have seen someone post their first seated dime and it was a cc mint mark.

Fantastic day ND!

So may of us will never see a day like that!

When did the fair grounds stop operation?

Were you running the AT Pro?

What coil and where did that Morgan come in at on the VDI?

Good job!

If I could land a site like that, I'd just change my address and never leave.
