Default Just a day in the mud

The last couple of days has been spent going through a new permission. Battling the wind the rain but it was worth it.

Three days hunting produced the seated quarter which I posted earlier this week two more seated dimes a silver thimble couple clay marbles two store tokens with the name of the town on it which has not existed since 1908. Almost forgot 5 ihp, and a couple bags seals.

Here is pictures of my wrap up. I am sure glad the ground is soft.

Older silvers and coppers, tokens, a thimble, and even some marbles. That's a great hunt!

That is an outstanding hunt. I would love to find a seated and a silver thimble. I searched a place where the lady who lived there claimed she lost her silver thimble but never could locate it. I did find two Washington quarters and one barber dime.

Great going Dan, I hear ya on the mud part, some sunshine and warm temps should clear things up. Looks like you're learning the new Nox great.
