It was worth the hike

I got out for a while this morning. Basically just drove around looking for some signs of cellar holes, with no real rhyme or reason. I saw a couple of large apple trees in a wooded area that piqued my interest. When looking at the big Apple trees, I could see where a wire fence was once attached to them. It had to have cut at least 3" into the trees! I put the coil down so I could get my headphones in and my Etrac was going nuts. I thought, well shit...EMI or a ton of garbage. It seemed like a mid time signal so I kicked the leaves back and sitting on top of the ground was the top to a Victorian era change purse. Found a rock wall, and decided to go exploring. I must have walked 3 miles up a mountain. It was a moderate grade with large plateaus every so often, and I had to keep going because I was getting a blanket of iron signals the whole way up. Dug a few to see what they were and found they were rose head nails. Colonial...great sign! Made it to the last plateau on the mountain and got one signal. A mid/high tone, right on the surface. Thought for sure it was going to be a shotgun shell, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a copper coin staring back at me! It's an 1820 Bust and Harp halfpenny. I know, kind of anticlimactic, but I worked for this one! Thanks for looking folks. Found a new cellar hole tonight too, so I'll add a pic of that as well.

Nevermind. File is too large to attach. It just looks like a regular 180ps cellar hole anyways lol

Not anti-climactic at all. That's a cool find. I had never heard of one but of course I am new to this
