Last 3 Hunts and a Cache...

Howdy--

Wow, getting ready for Christmas and have been bussy with my Hospice volunteering - just not enough time to detect! However, my last 3 hunts were productive. The first 2 hunts, at vacant lots yielded a couple silver coins, a silver belt tip and a few wheat cents. The third site, behind an abandoned locksmith's shop produced the "cache" . The Cache consisted of 129 lbs of keys (yellow brass)! The keys were surface finds - just had to rake them into a pile and shovel them into buckets. I took the 129 lbs of keys ($1.75 per lb) with 12 lbs of #2 copper ($2.30 per lb) to a recycle establishment and returned home with an extra $253. This is a hobby that pays for itself!! Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Merry Christmas and may all of your finds be of silver and gold!

Several of the detecting clubs in our area have a policy of gathering all the copper, brass, etc., and the club then uses that money for 'seeded' hunts for members. And the best part is the 'trash' is being recycled.
