Navy Davy and I ventured back to the 1000 acres that I had secured. After talking to the farmer, who much to my surprise it was learned that I had taught his sister back in the 80's.....small world.

Darn cold to say the least with Niagara Nose taking control of ND and I. First field gave up a few relics and we returned to the first field that we had done on the first visit. Nd was swinging the Omega today and rapidly hit some buttons.....then the grin and out came the Newfoundland 1908 50 cent piece!

We dug for a tad more with the extremities beginning to freeze. Managed a nice marble (eyeballed of course) along with a 1916 large cent and a buckle.

Here is the 50 of ND's and his lot of relics.

Excellent Find Leslie...And It's Silver Too!:thumbup:
