    Surprise Fugio

    Happy Thanksgiving all!

    Saved this beauty last week from a current 1910 house in Suffield, CT that had a colonial home on it originally. The property has also seen fill as this was recovered at 10 or 11 inches deep along with most of the other finds so far. And being on the corner of an intersection I was also fighting power lines. Had to run my MXT All Pro much colder than I'm used to, but it did well on this short hunt. I'll be back!
