View Full Version : AT Pro at the gun club location --2

Took the AT Pro to the old gun club location( now a public park) for about 3 hours. The gun club had shooting matches and picnics from the 1880's until the early or mid 1940's. I had dug some lead rifle bullets and a couple of old rifle casings from this section of the park grounds in the past.

Went to the section where I dug up the bullets, the last time I was there and gridded off a few sections of ground. I was determined to get more bullets and hopefully dig a coin or 2.

After digging a couple lead bullets I got a double signal from next to a tree. A high tone and mid tone was sounding off--no triple tone--low-high-low, just a high and mid tone.
I dug and at about 4 inches got a rusty bottlecap. Rechecked the hole and only a high tone --a quarter on the VDI-was sounding off at 6 inches.
See 1st picture. and 2nd picture.

A very worn, 1877 Seated quarter !!!!!!!!!!!! :omg: :omg:
After searching close by I went on the other side of the tree------ I got a dime signal at 4 inches.
See 3rd and 4th pictures.

A 1905 Barber dime came out of the hole...I did the silver dance. TWICE !!!!!!!!!!

My other finds for the day----a VERY GOOD day. :perfect10: :perfect10: :perfect10:

Man that seated quarter looks like it was in circulation forever. You can barely see any detail there, but it is what it is. Nice finds! :angelic:
