Default My first piece of shiny.

I went out after work last night and managed to fine a couple things. My last signal of the night, I popped the plug and saw nothing. No signal in the plug, nothing in the bottom. Thatís hapoened a couple times being new to detecting, so I wasnít too concerned. As I was pulling the pin pointer out of the hole... a beep. In the side wall, just peeking out, a see a little sliver of what I imagined me to be another pull tab or piece of siding, as the yard Iím searched by is full of it. I pop it out, low and behold, my first piece of silver! A perfect way to end the night. I ended up with $.78 in clad, a ford piece with threading in the inside, another mystery piece, and a sterling silver ring. A great way to end a !!!!!! day working.

Nice job and good persistence pushing through the garbage. Ford item looks nice too, was searching Ford hub/grease caps just now, some worth decent $$.
