Default Back on the silver train bigtime

FINALLY got to get out for a hunt yesterday on a new permission at a property that used to be part of an old picnics ground. My first find was the buckle, then the ring. Got to the back of the property and found the (3) Barber dimes, 1899, 1907, 1898 and the (4) Indians, 1891, 1901, 1890, 1899, . The spoon is marked Associated Silver Co., found a flat button, UMC New Club 12 guage headstamp, an old wedding band. Don't know what the two round copper items are, look like lids to salt pepper shakers????? . Starting to get dark and headed back to the truck and found the 1947 dime. Great day, Great Hunt. Seems like the more I find, the more I want to find. lol. Very addictive hobby, especially when you can have hunts like this.
I was running my CTX3030, coins, +3, Ferrous Coin and the 17" coil. Most of the items were 6" or less.
Thanks for looking and GOOD LUCK and Happy Hunting.

Smile Back on the silver train bigtime

Looks like you hit on a great permission site. Three Barbers in a single hunt is really outstanding. The Barbers and Indians sure indicate there are plenty more there and not a lot of hunting pressure. Hope you are able to continue hunting the area and having as much success as this hunt. Looking forward to seeing more of your recoveries. Congratulations.
