Default Today started very bad for me

Went to a local park,trying to give the nox a run..few clad pieces ,then a decent sized piece of wire..I threw it over the fence,6 foot dog fence around this park..but as I threw it I knew I cleared the fence,and watched as it landed loudly on a car..ouch!,looked around and saw no one,,until the car door opened and a big black dude stepped out..Man.i thought,just my luck..We had a few words,I saw a nice sized scratch n his roof,told him Iíll have a local body shop look at it,and pay for it..he said ok,and I walked away.
So,then I leave th park,go to a yard Iíve destroyed with the deus,F75ltd2 and Etrac several times over..these are my finds,Iím quite happy with the nox.If She finds out about the wire thing tho,oh boy.lol.

The lead round thing with the letters on it ,I donít know what it is..the house was built in the 1850s so it could be anything.

That tough start could have been a whole lot worse Pete. Still you made a very nice rebound and finished with a descent outing. Congrats on the Merc, Rosie and all the rest. Have no idea what the round lettered object is. Trapper

That's a lead seal and it's probably older than any of the coins...congrats on it and the Merc, Rosie and the rest!

Yep my vote is a lead seal. Only lead seals i find in my area are off gas, or electric meters. That one looks old though.

Congrats on the digs.

Nice work pulling some oldies out of a pounded spot, glad you're enjoying your Equinox!
Maybe time for a finds pouch though

Not trying to start something Wood...but why did you dig a piece of wire big enough to cause damage to a car roof thrown from a short distance away?

It wouldn't fit in my pocket and I didn't have a pouch..I meant to just throw it to the fence but I over threw and it cleared the fence and landed on the roof of the only car in the whole parking lot
The nox high-toned on it,gave a quarter signal..false signal

That SUCKS! I know what you mean, crank something big out of the ground and think,Ēoh HELL no Im not carting that around with me!Ē Iíve been lucky enough not to hit a car with anything,CERTAINLY not a car with dude inside!
Sorry man,itís funny cuz it didnít happen to me! But karma is a !!!!!...so it might...
