I returned an old homestead that I have hunted in the past. This time I detected an area that I missed last time. I was hunting beside a large tree when I got a nice Zinc signal on the F5, so I dug it and this is what it was!
These buttons are always fun to find, and can help date an area that you are hunting. After finding the button I wandered back to another large tree where I found a silver dime on my previous hunt there.
I found both of these wheat pennies in the same area as the silver dime. I was happy to dig a couple of old coins and had hoped for more silver, but at the end of the day, I still had fun!
The pocket watch was an interesting find. I searched for the rest of it, but this is all I was able to find.
The weather was great, the sun was shining, and the birds were singing. All in all it was a great day outdoors while Metal Detecting!
