So I have trying to get permission at this old schoolhouse for a while now. As luck would have it, their daughter played on my a sports team I coached. That finally led to an okay on the permission. As soon as I started hunting, it was obvious a lot of dirt had been moved. All I was finding was modern stuff in the back. Lots of iron in different layers.
I decided to move to the side and was still getting modern. I moved to the front and got a high tone that was fairly shallow. I was kind of shocked when 1943 Quarter popped out. After that, things really dried up. I got a wheat penny among trash. I decided to hunt near the road next.
I’m glad I did because I got a deep higher tone. I had the thought that there may be a deep pop can down there. Nope, dug a deep plug and a largie popped out. I was happy to see an 1865. That predates the schoolhouse.
