Detected a Private home in NJ Today
Quote this message in a reply
My friend waited until this morning to say yes - can you come over. He waited until the last minute but hey - this is a crazy hobby and you have to go with the flow.
First off his home is 120 years old and it was a big beauty. Grate looking molding and wooden floors and stairs - well you get the picture. He is moving in June and that is probably why he said yes.
I brouoght a Fisher CZ 7 to use - it's a little old but much easier to use for a beginner.
We detected together most of the time and after I explained how to use it he found two wheat cents and a few clad coins. The wheat cents were about 7 inches down.
I found a 1954 dog license, a 1943 Washington quarter and two wheat cents.

He asked if I would go to a beach with him before he moves to Fla. I guess he is trying to decide if this hobby is for him after he moves.

Nice digs. There has to be some older stuff there too.

Nice dog tag, congrats!

Remember when your cup holder sat next to you in a mini skirt and tank top?
