    First Dollar

    Detecting in some old lakefront cabins. The woods have their own challenges. My first Morgan dollar. Found in a small dirt berm that had been created when burying a cable. 6 brass shell cases (.30 WCF, 3 L C 52(?), 2 .22 short.

    Never got a Morgan. Deep digger duo swiped them all from my neck of the woods. Congrats!!

    Thanks all. Almost didn't believe the ATPro when it rang up a 99. I thought, "it can't be" but I got lucky.
