Amazing new detecting technique...

Hello all,

I relearn this technique every year: Taking my detector out of the trunk and using it greatly increases my finds. One of my beer buddies mentioned he had a duplex in a neighboring town, built in 1880s. He gave me permission to detect.

Only second or third time I've detected this year.

Best find was 1879 IH



Looks better than the picture indicates, still has some mint luster.



And a few silver, no date SLQ, dozen wheaties not shown.

We finally got some rain to soften the concrete ground, hope to get out more this fall.

Chris

Hey Chris,I'm glad we never went to Lake Geneva,its private! I don't recall telling you that but in case I didn't...that would've been a scramble to find a place!
And yeah...using the machine really helps...:lol:
Really nice finds right there!

That’s just CRAZY talk Chris. Next thing you’re going to say is that I’ll never find anything sitting here watching other detectorists metal detecting on YouTube! :shrug:
