Default First silver of 2021 plus a buff

A week ago we were iced in and unable to leave the house. Today it hit 72 and was absolutely beautiful. I decided to go back to my most productive spot of 2020 just to see if I had missed anything. First signal was a no date buff and within a few minutes I found a a 1942 Merc followed very shortly by a well worn 1935 Merc. Of course most of my finds were in the first 45 minutes but I'm very happy with the results and it was so nice to be out in the sunshine.

I have no idea about the Independence day tag.

jim! looks like a '20 on the buff, and the independence day thing looks to be a pocket watch fob...great day!

I saw the zero, however I didn't catch the two. A watch fob... cool, didn't think of that. Thanks!
