It's sad to see someone with so much to offer pass. I enjoyed watching and learning from what he had to say.

Nokta/Makro Simplex+ and the Discovery 1000 (BH Tracker IV).
Patience, persistence and luck!
Oldest find - Lock plate to a flintlock rifle. Best find - a T. Miller cavalry button. Oldest coin a 1837 Capped Bust Dime.
