One of my best days ever

I've hunted several mid 1800s sites in my area, but most of them have no coins.
Yesterday I was on my way to a site an hour away to tryout a new Simplex with the small coil.
I drove by a site I have been trying to get permission to hunt for a while. The land owners were home so I stopped and was given permission to hunt the field beside their house. The Simplex had to stay in the truck and the Equinox got a workout. I was in this field for 6 hours .
I had a good day.

Man, you did have a great day..
You found quite a few targets!!!
Definitely worth the trip!!!
And of course there was the aluminum can slaw. Most fields I hunt are full of it. Either from farm hands or from road trash. My trash pouch was almost full. But those four large cents and the eagle button made it worth the effort.

Four Large Cents in one day...! Your the Man..!!
Thanks. Until Saturday I had only found 4 in my life and neither one with a lot of details.
