I was going slower than I ever did...JB style sweeping
So I found small stuff and can't believe I now am getting much newer coins? One state clad quarter, one copper memorial, and a very good condition 25 Merc dime. The two bits that look like tabs are some sort of ID tag pieces from the cattle barn manure? I find lots, and they are very small. One homemade rivet of lead I guess, and pottery flakes
Ok, I went to another cornfield that is 500 feet wide by over 1/4 mile LONG!. I test hunted a few times a decade ago and a few tries last year, and never found anything old. Too far from the original home I suppose.
I had the 5.5 coil on the E-class Baron because I was supposed to try a short section of a long abandoned dirt road, that is named "old colony road". But could not fi nd anthing old, it's all washed out and rocky and gravel
So I am looking at this HUGE field and my tiny coil
After never finding anything there that was non ferrous besides can slaw from manure at the barns, I flipped out when I dig a big copper, but it is the worst one as far as corroded. Never will know what type of coin. Also maybe late 1800s brass eyelet from farm wagon? IDK. I also tried a couple days later and that is when the other 8" coil got water in it, but I did manage a piece of those thin brass "shoe wear plates" made with lots of tiny nail holes. Not in this pic. but did get it in AM and checked it in Disc, when the coil was messed up. I think I will try to get more AM hunting in.
Last pic from fall hunt at best field after they harroed it. The horse bit never got cut by years of plowing, also eyeballed the old toy wagon wheel, a metal 4 hole button, and a chils shoe buckle frame which I was told is rare to find, and some pottery
