    I Finally Got Out

    Detecting time has been scarce for me so far this year but I was finally able to get out for some local door knocking this past Saturday. I am almost embarrassed to post these finds after the amazing hunts some of you have been having lately, especially Jeff and Tim up in Wisconsin this past weekend!

    But it felt good to get out and these are the results from three yards here in Robinson. Better than a stick in the eye, I guess.

    Those are pretty nice finds by my standards. I think in the last week I have 1 Buffalo Nickel. Starting to forget what silver looks like. Thx for posting and hope you find more time for detecting. WD
