    May 18, 2019 Finds with Digger Don and Noah

    This past Saturday I met up with Don and Noah for some door knocking. We tried two different towns and got several yeses but it seemed that every yard we hit had been detected before. Nevertheless we ended up with some decent finds.

    Silver was scarce for me but I ended up with 5 Indian Heads, 10 1/2 Wheat Cents, 1 Buffalo Nickel, 1 Merc and a Rosie.

    Not much in the relics department. I'm pretty sure that the one item is silver. I think it's from a pocket watch bezel. The fired bullet has a metal jacket on it. (You were right, Don.)

    Congrats on the finds. For some reason I have been finding a lot of bullets as well. Must be chasing different signals. Glad to see you dragged Don out as I have missed his frequent posts. Congrats WD
