Hunting partner of mine found an old off base housing we have been hunting populated in the early 40s. It was a tear down so lots of trash but we have pulled a couple silver quarters some rosies, and mercs plus itís where I found the class ring I returned. Lots of wheats but it had been drying up for silver until today when I got that mid 90s signal that should have been another copper pipe added to the stack but not this time!!!
