One great day of detecting...

I got out with my buddy Mike today at an old pre 1840 house. All of our finds were in the front yard. It's hard to imagine that all of this was in the front yard. our first find was the 1877CC Seated quarter that I happened to scrape as it was in the hole with a large nail, drat!! I like the Conestoga bell which was my first one. I've found Crotal bells before but no Conestoga bells. The child's toy meat grinder is really cool and works too. A nice little sterling ring. Kerosene lantern part, you know you are digging history when you find those. A metal cane tip. I don't know what the deal is on the OK sign but I like that. We were only there for 4 and half hours too. Lots of digging in that short of time. One thing that helped me a lot was that this yard wasn't so full of iron scrap so it was much easier for me to pick things out with the Deus. To this day I still have a lot of trouble with lots of iron scrap in the ground. Quite often I have to go to the Sifter program to be able to handle the iron chatter.

Nice! We spend so much time sorting junk signals it is such a joy to hear a clean coin tone. Sure hit a lot more mixed and raspy tones and dig a lot of miscellaneous stuff. When that good coin signal comes in it is such a shock. Congrats!

Nice digs. Coins are great but I really like to sort through the rest of the stuff and piece together a story. Every piece of ground has history and that is what makes this such a good hobby to me.

Your silver is nice, but I am really in love with your little meat grinder. What a cool little thing! :clapping:
