Smile Metal detected yesterday and today. . . .

Total coin find for the two days was $1.53. The oldest coin was a 1966 dime. But my best find was a vintage Coca Cola Pocket Watch Fob from the 1920's. Mine looks as though it has been hit by a lawn mower and is not in the best of shape. But I love it anyway! I have a picture of mine and a picture of a similar one of what mine was supposed to have looked like!

I finally got some sunshine yesterday and today and if my luck holds out it'll be sunny again tomorrow and I'm going to go out again! Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking good luck and happy hunting!

Nice Coca-Cola item. Even with the damage it's a nice piece, even has some of the original paint on it.

Thanks for all the comments. I got out again today and had a lot of fun -- got a lot of coins! Most quarters for one trip I think! I'm getting back in the groove -- I used the Compadre today. Check out my latest hunt in the Coinshooters and Relic Hunters Forum.
