Treasures from the old canal.

Hooked up with jimzz977 from another forum today on his turf. We were going to do some field hunting, but, he recommended a constructi"on site along an old canal. I'm sure glad he did, it turned into a pretty good day. First coin of the day, jimzz977, scored a Mexican centavo. I got on a roll and scored the merc, buff and the fob? We moved over across the road and the first hit for was the 1856 1/4 reale, the town was founded in 1855, so, the coin dated the site. The next cool find, jimzz977 scored a woman heel plate. The bottle was a surface find, not sure it's that old since it has a screw top. It was a beautiful day to hunt here in the Southwest, low 70's and sunny.

The merc and button came from an old school yesterday. The dime was 6 1/2" down standing straight up and down, the button was a solid 9 1/2" deep. I was using the CTX on both hunts.

very nice treasures!



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.
