Default 3 Ghost Houses -11 Indians, 2 Cent & More!

Ok not sure if there are ghosts around, but the houses surely aren't.

What was once home sites from the late 1800's is just plowed field now.

They dont even show up on maps after about 1935.

Found about 50-75 old shotgun shells too, those were my "trash" targets.

Oldest Indian was 1866. A couple on top of ground, pulled up from plow. One was (flattened) may have met a train wheel.

2 cent coin is 1864.

6 bells, frozen Charlotte parts and more. Last pic is brass or bronze lightning arrester.

This took 2 days.

You had a very good day congratulations I have never found a 2 cent before nice job that is a bucket list her for me. And a nice wide variety of brass and copper pieces love the designs on them.

I found an 1866 Indian head penny a couple weeks ago I wished mine would have been in his nice shape is yours.HH&GL

You killed it, I'm amazed at the condition of all those indians. You have great ground at that site.

Way to get those houses to "Give up the Ghost" or as the Native Americas call it the Great Spirit.
