Penny with detectorist on it
Quote this message in a reply
Stopped at a tot lot I'd been to before, but not with my new machine, the TreasureTek Elite.

 There were some curious moms there asking about the hobby and I was explaining as best as I knew how. I showed them the trash I had collected and told them it was from another park, as I was just getting to this one. I let them know that I take the goodies and the trash with me to help their kids stay safe.

One quipped,  "I bet you can't find gold with that thing." I just happened to have the chain I found a few days ago with me, and showed it to her. Boy, did her eyes get big. Right after that is when I found this neat magnetic bracelet, almost under her feet.

    $4.36 in clad makes this the most in one dig so far, thanks in part to that gold dollar coin. The Cien Pesetas threw me for a loop, being my first non US coin. I like the markings around the edge. I need to get a bigger jar to hold my clad, this pint size is full already.

   The 2009 penny has what at first glance is a detectorist taking a break. I know that's not what it is, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it. The copper button next to it was a bear to find in the brown, wet, wood chips.

Till next time.... HH

Man, you must've had all those good looking soccer moms in heat, GD. A good looking guy swinging an exotic piece of equipment that can find jewelry! Every woman's fantasy! Nice bracelet Yes I never found a peseta coin, but if I did, I think I'd have a heart attack...appears like a gold dubloon at first glance!

Remember for the good of the hobby It is better to ask for permission than to beg for forgiveness.
