Had business near the location of my best all time site, a site that, prior to today, had surrendered 127 silvers (previously written about in this story).
I thought the site was pretty much finished off, (save for the stray few that I will eventually round up), but every time I drive by, I check it out (I mean, who wouldn’t; its a shrine for me), and low and behold, they had scraped some dirt off! I always have my machine handy (chance favors the ready mind), and I was able to get some detecting time in, and was able to pull 8 silver coins.
These coins were all shallow, being in the excavated zone. None deeper than an inch or two. How cool is it to get a signal, and look down, and see the rim of a silver quarter sticking out of the dirt? Unbelieveable.
135 silvers from this site now. I know where I’ll be tomorrow.
