If Metal Detecting Is A Sport...Here's My 2 Day Relay....:starwars:

Started off yesterday, detecting some schools, then switched gears and today I hunted parks and then old picnic grounds. I was a busy feller......got lots of coins, and one of the parks gave up a nice silver ring!



Here's the ring, and some coins from the old picnic grounds.



Next stop today, a favorite place to dig up petrified wood. No metal detector required, just a good sense of eyesight. I dropped a large piece, showing some nice grains from the previous wood. I might go after work to retrieve it.



Here's the nicest piece of petrified wood from today. You can see where a branch once existed, and the top end has already began crystallizing. I like it!

And finally, the day was completed doing an old picnic ground. Below you can see the fruits of my labor metal detecting the old picnic grounds.

Those are beautiful finds, John.

Any thoughts about the age and history of the musket balls? Maybe rom hunting, or was there any military history in the vicinity?

Is that a smashed slug (to the right of the three balls)? If so, any ideas about what it hit?

In the last post: "Maybe rom hunting"

... should be: "Maybe from hunting"

Sorry for the typo -- should have checked it better.
