Trip 5 to the Arboretum

Well-known member
Had some time today so back to the woods. Started in to what I was hoping was the magic arc of where festival goers would have been sitting during the concerts. I hit a full fledged bottle cap graveyard! I must have dug well over 150+ steel caps and pulltabs!
One good thing about digging it all, you do get rewarded!!! Recovered one 51 quarter and two 61 dimes, one clad dime and one Mem penny.

As I began to get out of the “arc” I started to hit lower numbers on the detector and dug a few more of those big 45 cal lead bullets. One smashed 45 cal rifle case and one Remington 32EXL casing. Phone was down to 3% so shut down and finished up.
I’ve included a couple pics of the Arboretum area for reference. Two are back to back, the last is where the bands would have looked out towards the crowds. Note steep hill in background at ridge top, thats gonna hurt to do that......

By clearing out those damned caps is how the tones cleaned up for the silvers. LUCKILY nearly everything we’ve been digging is in the 3-4” range in soft loose soil. We think this area was cherry picked in the years past too. I know I’m probably getting caps cuz the tone chirps but none the less sometimes other items come to light. I did try bottle cap mode but I don’t have enough time with that to put solid trust into it yet.

I can not forget about the time I went to this spot by a river and found couple of buffalo nickels, a silver Washington and a dateless SLQ. I then climbed this embankment and found quite a a few brass shotgun shell casings... Long story, short, I decided to go back the next day and I pillaged every last brass shotgun casing out of the ground. :ROFLMAO: I must of dug around 60-70 of them. In doing so, it exposed me to finding a silver dime and buffalo nickel. It was a bunch of digging but I had a good feeling I was going to find more and I did.

So I can related to clearing a spot out of junk targets to get to the treasure!
