    Gats on some silvers and IH. Good you were able to find some time to detect. I'm just starting to as well, and I even found time to to finish up the porch project I started before I got sick.

    Thanks, Al. I braved the barberry this weekend, too, and it paid off. The only downside is that still with gloves, I get a few of those thorns as splinters. One that started hurting on the knuckle...

    Grats with the silvers. Never seen a wheat that eaten away. The token from a smaller screen looked like a half dollar at first. Nice token.

    Nice bottles. Looks like some late 19th century to early 20th. The seams and embossing indicate such, but they are early and nice shape.
