Default Silver #21 fty! And some other cool stuff!!

So today I went to a house built in 1900 with a huge side yard, I went and knocked and The guy told me he was getting ready to mow then I was welcome to detect, so I went back to a house I have hit 3 times, pulled 6 silver coins and a silver ring, and the fire truck tootsie toy, the people that live there said I am welcome anytime, and since I had at least an hour to kill, I thought what the hell.... Well I ended up finding silver again, a 54 Rosie. Also found a 1930 Buffalo, and an almost complete cap gun! I also found another Cracker Jack presidental mystery coin, this time Millard Fillmore. Last week I found Rutherford B Hayes. Also snagged a couple Wheaties. That makes 7 silver coins, a silver ring, a Buffalo nickel, and 25 wheaties from this yard! Then I went back to the first house and saw he finished mowing, so I was off and swinging.....and got skunked! All I found beside a little clad (.43) was a old token from the Timken Roller Bearing Co from Canton Ohio.....As I was headed to the truck then home owner came out and asked how I did, and then told me his buddy has detected the hell out of the yard for the past couple years... Oh well....still had silver in the pock!!!

Great report! I'm at 21 silvers fty too. Love the toy gun. Also like the Timken token. A couple years ago, I replaced a wheel bearing hub assembly on my car, with the cheapest one I could get, and it only lasted a couple months before getting noisy. I then replaced that with a good quality Timken assembly, and drove happily ever after. They've come a long way from the old "Roller Bearing Co" days.
