The title says it all. I went back to a park that has been very good to me. Small but old. I finally got an opportunity to start on an outfield that I’ve been dying to rehit.
This outfield has produced silver, a large cent, wheat pennies, silver rings, etc. So, I started to meticulously grid it out. Outfields are huge, so it takes me a lot of visits. Remember, speed kills finds. Seriously, slooooow down. This is not a race and going fast helps you miss targets. I don’t like missing targets.
The only problem with this outfield is that someone decided to put a whole package of tin foil in it. Gosh it is so annoying. I dug so much foil. But you have to pay to play.
I got a very nice penny signal and pulled out a canadian penny. I didn’t bother looking at the date. I had little time. The next interesting target was in the gold range with a higher flutey sound. Out comes a shotgun shell. Looks to be a real, nice old one. Again, I didn’t even check it. In the bag it went.
As I was moving toward the fence in the outfield, I got a screaming 84ish signal. I was a little confused b/se it was clad dime range but the tone was odd. And it about blew my ears off. So, I dig down and see what looks to be a silvery pin. When I pulled it up, I see it is a cross with holes in it. It’s very interesting. Cool, I said, looking for a mark. I still can’t find a mark, but will be taking a toothbrush to it later.
Well, I was almost out of time and tried to finish up on a good line, so I would know where I stopped for another hunt in the future. As I was moving toward the infield, I got a nice, steady signal in the 70s. If they are erratic, they tend to be aluminum bottle caps or some such. This was steady and not chattery. So, I decided to dig it and was happy to see this cool child’s ring.
