Default 30 minute hunt before going to work today

There’s rain in the forecast and I decided to get a quick hunt in before the rain. I was able to locate a harmonica reed, an old buckle a couple of clad pennies and a 1945 Mercury dime. All items found within 30 minutes before I have to go to work.

When it comes to Detecting, Work often proves to be a temporary and unprofitable nuisance! Nice score on the Merc there Buddy!

I do better on the quick 30 minute hunts before work or on my lunch break than i do on weekends when i go out of hours. I must be more dialed in or something.

It amazes me how often harmonica reeds show up. Did people just routinely break up old harmonicas and throw them in the yard?
