Bored, figured I'd revisit an old permission this morning, swing for an hour or two. Redid the ground but configured the manticore for depth, slow recovery and crawled along as I went. Couple of wheats, a 1954 license plate and getting ready to go, heard a faint 80s, low 90s sharp crackling in my headset, non-repetitive, did a 360, faint, non-repetitive....ah....you know my motto, dig all deep beeps, especially high tones. Popped the plug, couple of delicate shovelfuls and flipped on the grass was this thing, thought it was aluminum, just didn't bling at me ya know. Ho hum, whipped out the toothbrush a few swipes and 'Sterling' popped out. What a dufus I am, glad I didn't bring an my iron brush! Cleaned up nice and pretty cool.

That's a cool relic for sure, we don't see that very often. Side note, what kind of shovel were you using last Friday?

hi mark, think this was it.

 
That's what I thought, Bart has them on sale now. Do you use a holster for the shovel? Had one for a moment and noticed that the shovel keet banging against my leg. Thanks
