Fun Hunt :)

Hit one of my usual haunts this morning. The A.M. was pretty dry on finds. So, decided to take a break to go get new batteries, as I only had one bar left on the Safari. As I'm leaving, I see two older gentlemen swinging. I approach & make small talk, and they were friendly as can be. After I got my batteries, I went back & all three of us detected for about 2 hours. Both were EXPERT marksmen Wink One of them even pulled a merc & a barber dime. As for me...

I found an old oil lamp (included a pic of a similar piece), a nice old shoe buckle, an Indian (date unreadable), and a 1919 W merc. Also got a few wheats, clad and the requisite pile of junk.

Nice to get out and make new friends Yes

P.S. - Before my break, the Safari was working fine. After I put in the new batts, the unit kept shutting on & off. Happened many times. On a few occasions, wouldn't even re-start. I tried one of the guys battery pack, and it worked fine. Mine didn't work in his though, so, it's gotta be the battery pack. I don't think the connections are touching or are seated completely/properly.

Great hunt. You got some nice finds and new friends. Do you clean the old crusty indians? I know people say "don't clean coins ". When I get old pennies like that I figure they aren't worth much anyway. I give it an easy brillo scrub and they look much better.
