   Great job at the beach! Bummer on the RV breakdowns, and hope the repairs don't take away from your treasures! And I'm sure it's good to be home! Cool necklace! And hope the wife is back to normal!👍👍

Nice pendant and chain! Neat idea using a silver quarter to make that coil. Well done.  Is that an old 1800's flat button you found?? Kind of looks like one.

Any day on a beach is a good day in my book.

RV issues  and the food poisoning sure can put a crunch on enthusiasm though.

I was hoping to find some older stuff, at least I did find an old military button. Not only is the beach very clean, there are supposedly a lot of detectorists there. Saw a guy swinging an Equinox with the 15" coil on it, don't think he found much because I hit that spot earlier in the day. I watched him dig for a while, but he didn't pocket anything.

Honestly I found most of my coins and rings not by hunting the water, but by estimating the tide level at peak beach time from the day before. I learned a lot, and it's a heckuva lot easier to dig the beach than the farm!

Got the coil coin from Etsy, someone laser cuts them I think.

Thanks! I ordered the pendant before I left, but shipping was slow. They make them for many popular detectors.

The button is probably 1800s, it's brass and very thin, probably the thinnest I've found here. Got over 100 of them in this one field, they range from mid 1600s to the early 20th century.

Quite true! It's a 40 foot Toy Hauler, lots of stuff can go wrong. It's 5 years old now, has 10,000 miles on it, a '17. No worries, I've fixed lots of these problems, this is my 4th RV. So far nothing has been too expensive. My wife ate some bad watermelon we think.

Well I can say RV life can be rough. I lived in my parents RV for a year in Bakersfield for a new job.  I was home for the weekend and the cold water knob blew out of the shower flooding the whole rig.   The neighbor lady shut the water off for me.  What a mess.   You are living an adventure and this stuff comes with it I guess... still fun though.

Good to have you back home safe, Bob.  Now you gotta put that water/beach experience to work strategizing how to attack that boat landing now that the watervis going to start warming up.

And I bet she tried to blame you for it like most women would.

I read every hunt that you have posted over past few days and loved each one of them.

Sorry for the problems you had with the RV, and I guess she said it was your fault for that too.

Happy hunting on your next trip.

      Second day on the small flat but this time with the DEUS..   It pulled a few good targets using Fast with the XY screen.  The Mexican Real and the pistol tool were maybe an inch apart and the DEUS heard them both.  The more I use the Deus the more I like it.  Cool two piece button in 3 pieces was just under the grass.  I am having trouble reading the date on the coin so maybe somebody can see better than me?

      Spent 4 days in Nevada last week and hit 4 different places that consisted of a Military Fort and 3 ghost towns all on private property. Found a nice assortment of stuff. Coins are pretty crusty but should clean up OK. The holed looking coin turn out to be a ration token that has been counter stamped a bunch of time. It reads U.S, Subsistence Department on the one side and had One ration on the other.

      This is a rare day for me...3 silver dimes (first time ever)! I went back out for another hour at sunset to see what else could be found in the area I found the Barber this morning. I would never have guessed it would be another Barber day, and the first year of issue at that! The settings stayed the same, and the tones were about the same. I have gone over this area in the past, but when it gets hot and humid in FL, digging a dime isn't worth the effort sometimes. Well, I won't be passing up jumpy dime signals in that area again! It has been very dry here, so I will be hitting this patch of grass again when it rains and lowering the recovery speed. Also, I dug a coin(?) that is 3.1 grams(penny), and it looks to be squashed. However, the thickness is very consistent, unlike a train running over the coin. From one angle, it appears to say 1877 or 1827. Anyone have an idea?
