Bright spot in a slow hunt

Finally melted some of the 6 inches of snow today and with the temps above freezing I headed out for a few hours this afternoon. The first site has produced little in the past but is old and was in beans this season. But after 2 hours of gridding, I had lots of stuff and not one keeper, so I shifted gears as the sun was closing down. This particular on room school from the 1890's is a tough nut, lots of coke from burning coal and likely been hunted before I "discovered" it. This petite 18k sounded like the other 3 shotgun shells I had just dug but it had a different look LOL. I kept my fingers crossed till I give the first rub and it wasn't plated. The gold had a strange tone and I was betting high grade as the look was different, good bet! Great to get out.

Nice find Jeff you can keep that snow too! 50 here today just got a 1800's farm down the road from my home which had a old store on the corner I'm dying to go today!
I've been in there one time before with the owners nephew found a silver quarter quickly we did not hunt long enough which bummed me out.
