Well, today's WILD adventure actually began on Tuesday with a FB message to a buddy of mine about hunting his yard. ( 1920s) He gave his blessing, so Juan and were off to do some diggin'.. It did not take long at all before we both scored silver. I hit a 5" screamer and out climbs a Merc dime.. then Juan tells me to come see this.. he has a 1963 Rosie.. a few wheats follow, then i have my 2nd and 3rd silver dimes,, same hole ! SWEET.. Juan finds a killer toy badge beside a huge oak tree.. it was a junior "G men " Melvin Purvis.. very nice relic.. ended up with 4 more silvers from this yard and YES i was on cloud 9. We broke for lunch and some cool off time. next we drove over to the historical district. the city is in the process of making a huge new parking, so needless to say there has been ALOT of scraping here..... this area dates back to the mid to late 1800s. so being Recharged, we park and do a little walk around.. yes, we went back and got our detectors.. :) right off the bat i get a penny range signal.. all targets here were shallow!!! thank u city for scrraping most of the trash away.. now, for the penny signal . 12- 43 on the my E Trac. 2" thinkin it would be a wheat, i get another silver.. this time it was a 1902 barber dime.... Juan pulls a back to back, with a nice Pre war lead cowboy figure and then walks over to me and says Gotcha !! a Huge gold ring. band was broken , but atleast 14-18 kt.. awesome, wtg buddy.. ended up with 2 more silver dimes there and a first, had to ask MR. relic, ( juan ) turns out it is a Petitcoat weight ( button ) circa 1870s . we are def. going back in the morn to hit this place harder..
