Gotta say it was a good day
Quote this message in a reply
The weather was great today. I hit a little park nearby. I dug my first old shotgun shell piece. It says Peters and I got a smaller piece that also says Peters. Found alot of small bullets. Some kind of fancy little triangular button or something. Some big iron pieces. A little clad. And a whole bag full of junk. Oh I almost forgot. I also got my first Barber dime 1902. And my oldest coin yet. An 1859 Indian head penny. It's a one of a kind year. It was the first year of the Indian head and they changed the design the next year. AWESOME day detecting.

Congrats on your first barber, Will!!! The first of many yet to come Yes

It was 62 here in NJ yesterday. I'm guessing you guys weren't too far off, eh? Still no rain, but, 60's in November can't be beat Happy

Go back and hit that spot again!

I remember the exact location of where I found the indian. There is an obvious marker right there. The barber was right in the same area, only a few feet away. I got the injun first and then the dime right after. I will be back there.

Thanks Ohio. The live one is a 22. I was finding those little bullets and shells all over around where those coins were.
