Recent 2 Days Metal Detecting February 2016

Had a little extra time to get out for a solid 2 days of hunting. The weather played nice and finds were plentiful. The items recovered are setting up a pretty high standard for the remainder of the month. I do plan to get out some more in the coming days. But as of now, the rain is setting in for the next 2 days or so.


As some of you already know about a few of locations, I spent the majority of the time at one site…the Camp Meeting Grounds. This area has produced some amazing finds over the past 2 years. Since hunting season is over, I now have access to property until November 2016, when hunting season starts again. Below you will see the “Best of It”. Once I get everything cleaned up, I’ll post some more pics.

Also, I find this very interesting. The first day I went to a really large farm that sits behind a nearby old town. As I was metal detecting, I had seen the property owner outside, I walked over and said hi and that I’ll stop by to return a book that her husband let me borrow before I head home. We got talking about her father who passed about last February who was a dear friend of mine. When I had first spoke to him about permission to metal detect his property about 2 years ago, I asked him if he collected anything or would like to see what I find. He replied with “I like to collect silver.” So I told him I would give him the silver coins I find to show my appreciation. The first silver coin I gave him was a 1877 Seated Liberty Dime. Now that was one of the last things his daughter and I talked about before I started hunting again. The very first target I had dug after we spoke was the Holed 1840 Seated Half Dime. I ran back over and showed her because I found it to be such a strange coincidence. I had to explain what the coin was and that the Seated Liberty was what I had originally gave her father. Though not the same exact coin at first, after I finished showing her I went back out again and found the 1876 Seated Dime. That has to be one of the most interesting things that has happened to me.
