But I didn’t get any. Not that I wasn’t trying …
You can tell that by my nickel total.
I tool my E-Trac to a site that I last hunted back in May 2011. It is an old church yard. The church has been sold and the yard is about to be paved. So I thought that I would take the E-Trac to the spot and see if I missed anything. I especially wanted to dig the deep, low tones. I’m convinced that there has to be a piece of gold there somewhere! Here is a big pic of my finds.
I only dug 15 coins total. Seven of those were deep nickels. Besides a little clad, I also dug one deep, green Wheat penny. I also dug a junk WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) pin … (I’m not always sure what Jesus would do, but I’m reasonably certain his pin would be gold.) 😉
My most interesting finds were the three tiny sterling silver balls. I found them in about a five square foot area, all three in different holes. None were closer than 18 inches from one another. But my beastly E-Trac sniffed them right out … gave me an awesome high tone. They all match a broken ankle bracelet that I dug back in May 2011. On that day I found the short chain (marked .925) and 5 balls in the hole. I’m pretty stoked to add another three silver targets to my 2012 total. Here’s a close-up.
As darkness fell I was headed to my truck, swinging all the way … when I hit another awesome high tone. I was thrilled when I turned over the plug and saw this little baby on the bottom of my plug. It was shining … even in the dark. 🙂 It’s a 1946-D Rosie.
Maybe I’ll get on the gold tomorrow. I’ll just keep digging those good, low nickel tones …
Thanks for looking!
