    Couple of past hunts

    Been going back to the golf course lately because it is close and I don't have to worry about the social distancing thing.
    Yesterday RobW and myself went to the golf course and I managed a few goodies. Surprised to see such big pieces of metal still coming out of the ground.

    As far as coins go....1936 Merc and some memorials. RobW got 3 wheats.
    4 more horse tack buckles (total 48 out of there so far). RobW got a nice cast iron shoe buckle.

    A USAF Desert Storm pin...don't know age.

    Another gag loop....rare and highly collectible.

    A nice lock plate front, brass. Which I had the key that went to it.

    Thanks for reading and HH and everyone be safe.

    I have a niece in the Air Force (Captain). I will ask her if it was an issue or a commercial item

    No Drew, one came from right around the club house(which no longer is standing) and three came from across the street. Houses...oh yeah, about 10 or 11 are up so far. Nothing on the east side though

    Congrats on the finds, Al! I'm glad you are able to get out for some detecting. It's nice to have a go to site like that in your pocket. It's even nicer that it's still giving up keepers.
