    First Hunt of the Year.

    I met up with Tony Two-Cent & Noah Saturday for our first hunt of 2021. They both had a pretty good day. Me, not so much. But it was still great getting out after a crappy winter!!

    I got a 12-46 high tone at about 5 inches. I dug a 5" plug and to my surprise i pull out an 1888 Indian, then I pulled out about 5 nails. I re-swept the hole and the high tone was still there.
    2" Below the Indian, I pulled out a clad quarter. Very strange!

    Good to see you out digging again Don! I know you guys had a cold winter. It was very nice of you to let Noah and Tony dig all the silvers. You know how they cry when they don't find any! Only a few more months and then we'll be out road tripping!

    The first of many great hunts this year! So odd about the quarter below the IH. Any thoughts as to why?
