Default Decent Saturday!

My buddy Garrett got a permission that we hit today. 4 silvers between us. Old house potential for mid-1800's on, but did not get into any mid 1800's coins. Very iron infested. Hardly any junk nonferrous, but as I said this was the worst iron I have seen where the house is actually still standing, and lived in. Possibly there had been a house or two there before the one pictured.

I got both my silvers a 41 Washington and 51 Rosie in the same hole. My IHP came shortly afterward. All 3 Buffalo nickels and hem weight came in fairly close proximity from one another under the canopy of a big oak tree. I only got 2 Wheat Cents! That's very weird! I only dug one clad quarter. All the coins I dug were 5"-6". I should have brought out the 10x5 or 6" coil, but never did.

My buddy Garrett was using the Deus II and got 2 pretty slick Barber dimes. One of which is pictured. The oldest coin of the day 1892.

Thanks guys, and Tom I really like those emerald green IHPs too. This was also my 10th silver quarter of the year.

Default Relic

What is that bottom right relic in the bottom right pic? I have found those and wondered what they are.

My forth this year. I have not found as many this year, but find myself concentrating on silver more. Same with V nickels I have not found one this year.
