Well, I continue to hammer out the mid tones. Starting to sound like a broken record. Just know I will be doing this at least through the end of the year. Probably longer.
So, I recently hit up a local school that has seen tons of traffic over the years. I decided to concentrate on the sidelines of the soccer fields. Got a nice tone in the 50s, and dug up a nice silver earring. Of course, it’s like a gram, but I will take it.
In the front field, I got a screaming signal in the 80s. I was really expecting a pop can. Out comes a non commissioned officers commemorative medallion. Pretty neat find.
Lastly, I got another signal in the 50s on a sideline and dug the junk eagle necklace piece.
On another day, I went back to a ballfield that I have been painstakingly gridding. This outfield is monstrous. So, I was hitting the southern part of that where I have been skunked for silver. I got a whispery signal down the third base line. I would bounce on the numbers, but had enough good toning in there to make me dig. Was happy when the 1918 mercury dime poppped out. It may be an S mint make, but I need my jeweler’s loupe to figure that out.
