Default 3 hunts not very impressive

Well the bracelet came from the 1896 house I was talking about last month. I was so impressed with the house I wasn't really looking at the landscape. Well it was a restaurant at one time so there was more driveway than I expected. And the soil out back seemed to be a mixture of everything, so not much there except some clad. Next was a short hunt at our local swimming area. I could tell someone had been there as there was virtually no pull tabs or anything except a nice fishing lure which I gave to my grandson. Then there was yesterday, another fine day here in E.TN. had my hopes up for some nice curbstripping, but nothing but a lonely 1917 wheat. It is in good shape though. So I'm gonna have to get serious and door knock I think to find anything worth digging. I don't want this year to be a bust like last year...yikes...

Yeah, but it's pretty cool. Nice earlier wheat in good condition. What's the item with the hole? A dog tag?

Nice bracelet. Looks silver to me. You sure it's not? If its home made or at least locally made it may not be stamped sterling even if it is. Know what I mean?

I wouldn't call that hunt disappointing. That bracelet looks silver to me also and looks like you found a pair of cufflinks. Congratulations on the finds.
