I found twins

We have had a rare 6 days above freezing in January here so I got to dirt fish yesterday. I chose an old permission that I thought I had done 
A very good job on in the past. It is an old foundation just outside of town.
   The targets were few and far between , last time here I did a dig everything hunt with the f2. I first found the 1920 wheatie , it has a sticky film on it sorta like old axle grease . Not far away I got a high tone close to the foundation wall. Out pops the first 26 merc.  That got me a little more excited for this hunt. The going got a little slow for awhile and then I got the second 26 merc just as I was about to hang it up for the day. Even with an hour extension to this hunt I was unable to find anything other than a phone call from the Mrs. Saying hey you said you'd be back a while ago.
   I've got one more nice day forecast , but the honey do list is a bit long.
   I hope everyone gets a chance to get out and that they have as much fun as I did.
Pat

Nice finds Pat. It's interesting to see the different wear patterns on the Mercs. It means that the one on the left was in circulation longer than the one on the right.

Nice work Pat. The twins are a great way to celebrate a day out swinging, especially given your normal temps there. I think that sticky substance must have helped protect the wheat from corrosion; it looks to be in real good condition.
