I got out today for about an hour and a half. I didn’t really have a place to go so I decided to do some door knocking. First landowner I talked to granted me permission and I got to hunting..
I have been hunting hard for several days getting several days of footage together to make some videos using the Minelab CTX3030.. Saturday, I headed to a spot that I had hunted a long time ago and haven’t found anything there in a while.. I started out on the east side of the property and my first target was a 1905 Indian Head cent.. Later I found a second 1905 when moving over into the homeplace’s yard.
I found a few relics including a silver plated spoon.
After going over the spots that I had hunted before, I asked the landowner if I could hunt in the yard… Man that was the best decision I have made in a long time..
My first target was a thimble from the O.B. Macaroni company. Click this O.B. LINK to see the History of this company that started back in 1899.
My next target was a small decorative item, as I was moving my detector, I heard a high tone and checked it.. It sounded good, so I marked it and finished the dig… After filling my hole back in, I moved over to the marked signal, and pinpointed.. It hit 12-41 then changed to 12-44.. The next thing I know is a huge flash of silver!!!
I just about lost it… So after texting my bud’s about the Morgan, I moved back up the other side of the sidewalk and another loud tone came in at 11-42…I wasn’t prepared for the second bigger silver that came out next!
I was pretty much ruined after that.. I hung around a little longer, but was pretty much done.. lol here is the total finds for the day. I did manage a few newer wheat’s by a swing set post.. I can honestly say haven’t had a big silver day like this in a long time. Luckily I had a video camera with me this day, cause I wouldn't have believed it unless I saw it...lol.... Hope you enjoy the post and the video..
My friend Emmit came down to Durant today. He just got his new E-Trac and even though he was sick he was ready to go..
Went back to S.R. today to try and find a few old pieces. I have one homeplace that really hadn’t had anything good show up. I had worked a little of the yard but had left quite a bit to finish. Got there with about 45 min to an hour to spare. Pickings were slim, first target was a old brass water hose end. The next target read 10-28. At 5 inches was this old hair pin. It says
Tip-Top Products Co.
Found a couple of nickels and two memorials. Then I started next to the driveway. First I found a necklace charm with the initials B M on it. Unfortunately it wasn’t gold. After going only about a foot I got a 10-35??? signal on the E-Trac which is a copper penny signal, it was at 4 in. The target sounded larger than a penny so I am thinking junk or the rest of the necklace or bracelet. I almost lost it when I seen a large silver rim in the dirt clod. When I washed off the dirt and saw the liberty, I had to sit down and take a breath. A 1941D Walking Liberty Half!!! The only reason I can explain the lower number was the driveway had rebar and it might have been drawing the signal down. Out of the ground the half reads 11-46 solid! Silver Road is still producing…and sites are never completely worked out. The land owner was there and she was just as excited as I was. It cool to let owners see what’s coming out of their yards.
Not much in the way of a lot of targets but that one made it all worth it. GfH (going back I’ve gotten my second wind)…
