Went out yesterday to a site close to my home. A field that is bordered by an old fire company and an 1848 Farmhouse. Started detecting near the home and I saw a young woman on the front porch. I walked over and said hello just to ask where their property line was located. She was very friendly and told me her husband detects a little just for fun and said I could detect on their property anytime I wanted. Cool! I continued hunting the farm field next to their land for about 1 1/2 hours and dug 6 buttons, 2 wheaties (1940 and 1919), the remains of a 1930’s Mickey Mouse pocket watch, decorative metal latch with several fleur-de-li markings and a silver dollar sized pewter piece. Thought I had a large coin at first. Anyone have an idea what this could have been?
Anyway, her husband came home soon after I started and he showed me his detector, a bounty hunter 3300. I gave him detecting tips and will be back to hunt around the farm with him and his 5 acres real soon. I think good finds are awaiting me.
