    Best 1 hour hunt ever

    Hunted from 5AM to 6AM before I had a boatload of chores to do. Same place I found the 2 barbers. Really strange place in terms of area of ground. Find 1900-1920 items in one area and have found Rosie/Washington/40s wheaties about 100 feet away. No mix (yet). Went painfully slow in an area my buddy and I hit. Loaded with iron. Loving the fact that I can take this CTX where I have been hoping I could be. Only took 7 years.... Next step is to figure out picture orientation....

    Thanks guys! Follow up. Went back yesterday and spent 2 hours and only got a 1914 Wheatie and some more brass shotgun shells. I just hit a nice patch of coinage.

    Tony - It was incredibly difficult to leave, but they had to get done.
