That's a ridiculously fantastic hunt, Steve Yes You must've had a big $hit-eating grin driving the whole way home! What kind of site was it? How old?

Glad to see you posting finds again...thought you retired Chuckle Tongue

it was 3 whole days in Illinois first we went to a field that had a fair grounds years ago. last years we went there and I got 5 silver dimes and pennies and my friend got 2 half's. this year I got the Indians, 3 barbers and a merc. My friend got some wheats and a half.
The next day we went to a civil war prisoner of war camp that's been detected to death. I got the 6 three ringers a Williams cleaner, a musket ball and 4 trashed eagle buttons my friend got nothing. The ground was dry all the way I was getting targets at 12 inches with the CTX 3030 would have loved to see how deep it would have gone with moisture.
The third day we spent in fields tried some old house sites all I found was the badge that reads US Olympic Nagging Champs. So we moved on to a school site that used to give up some wheat's it was a chiseled corn field really ruff I wasn't having any luck my friend was finding some wheat's, until my last swing I got the 1907 barber quarter.
Then we went to another school to finish the day, his town has a project going moving this 1850's one room school to town as a museum the site it used to sit is now field so we decided everything we found would be donated in a case. So we got a drawer latch like 10 wheats and Indians, a large cent and a religious medallion and assorted stuff. Just a start but was fun

Hi Ed, Not all these sites are virgin the fair grounds and civil war camp have been hammered for years by lots of people, The fair grounds is like 200 acres so you never know when you are going to find something good.
The all the school spots have been hit hard for like 4 years . the last school that we hit for the museum has never been done and we were tired and it was dark and cold, I am sure there is still more there waiting. We did hit some fields where there use to be old houses that have never been detected and didn't find anything, My friend just called and says he just got permission to do 2000 more acres that has lots of building spots I guess I will have to get back down there

Well good luck with the 2000 acres. It'd take me five years to do 200 so I hope you're a young buck. But all in all, for those areas to be as hammered as they were, you did a fantastic job of detecting!!
