High Winds, Bullets Everywhere, And The Zincolns Kept A Comin'


Recommended Posts


Not a bad day at all. It will be interesting to see if on old glass or pottery shards show up in those fields after a good rain, Arrowheads too.

Thanks! It's always good to find silver. Hard to believe it's spring with the cold air and freezing temps overnight.

I'll have to check when they disc in front of my house. Indian artifacts are reportedly common here, I haven't found any. The farmers say they have.

Yeah, the top loop was broken. As If I didn't have enough lead to carry. I didn't think I'd ever get any silver out here!

   Great job on the merc, and bullets! Junk goes with good stuff! At least your "junk" has some good age to it! Keep at it, now it's a whole new field! I love a fresh disced field, after a hard rain!!🤩🚜

  And do your arm a favor, and place the battery under your arm cuff! That will help counterbalance the coil well! You can apply some more of that rural engineering to make it snazzy, functional, and quick to mount, I'm sure!!👍👍

Were it that I could, they told me they are planting it all tomorrow. 😕 Supposed to be a freeze tonight, maybe I'll get a break. At first they said they were just going to disc it and leave it for a bit, but the rain never happened here.

We'll see what they do with the 175 acres in front of my house, maybe there will be a shot at that. Historically they have done "no till" farming, but this year they are turning the soil.

Ya got me thinking about that arm cuff! 🤔

   When I'm up in Georgia hunting and/or detecting, I am just careful to step between rows, after they plant! When the plants come up, and get bigger, ( cotton, corn, peanuts!) I use a smaller coil, and alter my swing to accommodate, if I think it's a good area! I also hunt the roto-sprinkler ruts, tractor ruts, washes, and field perimeters, for a little extra area! When I can no longer do rows! But I do bail out of the field in a hurry, when i hear the sprinklers hissing, or the crop duster coming! I don't want to get soaked, or be one of those cancer stories that the lawyer's chase after, on late night TV!🤣👍👍

Guess I'd have to coin shoot, I must have dug 100+ holes today. Don't think they'd like that.

They have the "grasshopper" sprayer parked out there with lots of those chemicals that would grow an arm out of your head 😀 no worries, river hunt next week and I have to do some RV repairs from MY trip to Georgia... 🤪 Still got a few places to go here.

      Two years ago, I found 104 nickels in a single hole. No key dates. No bank wrappers. Just nickels. 
      But today I found at 4 inches or so 26 memorials (all copper of course). Deeper down, 23 Wheaties, 2 nickels, and 3 Rosie's, and a Merc. The hole became deeper then my pro pin pointer was long. At least 11 inches deep. And yesterday (Saturday)  nearby, I found this 1937 silver half in immaculate condition.

      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?

      Went out for a couple of hours this morning. I find that the 2nd day after a big rain (we got 8"+ in two days) is better than the day after. It was a nice day, pretty cool and the deer flies are finally on the decline. I loaded up with Cutter and headed out to the steamboat landing, I have been mowing small portions of it for access to the river and to hunt the dirt as well. Can't do the whole thing, it's quite a few acres.
      I cleared this ~30x40' space that I think was where a small building was, there is brick and lots of iron. It's a challenge to find anything so I went for deep iffy signals that were for the most part repeatable.

      I wasn't disappointed, great conduction today. Got the usual junk:
      Lamp parts, what might be gun parts, and shotgun shell ends. A couple nails. The round disc appears to be the back of a wristwatch, there are no markings.
      Dug a couple of wheats, a 1918 and one with no discernible date. The latter was 8" down under a root. Some chrome plated object, probably recent.
      The buckles were the most interesting things, first is a suspender buckle similar to one Chase found here, with a patent date:
      Second is what I think is from the 1700s, not sure whether it is for a shoe or knee:
      Unfortunately the rounded plate is twisted, I don't dare try to fix it.
      Last is another of the clip type buckles, this makes #3 and is the most spectacular of them all. I have the other half. This one is the most ornate:
      Got new headphones I'm going to try out there tomorrow.

      I've been hunting the yard of a house we have been working on for a few weeks. The house is the first or second house built in that town and has some decent history. So far I have only found 3 old horseshoes, a completely shot rusted pocket watch, a few pieces of lead pipe, a few newer coins, many rusted cans, and a ton of rusted chunks of steel. I was about to leave the job today and decided to search for a half hour or so. I was about to leave and decided to dig another signal that sounded decent. It ended up being an Indian Head Penny. I was pretty excited to finally find an old coin on that property. After rechecking the hole I ended up finding 8 more IHP in a space about the size of a table place mat. I searched all around that area and found on more less than two feet away from the first hole. They are in pretty rough shape. After only rinsing under the faucet, the top 2 show dates of 1891 and 1883. The bottom 2 are unrecognizable. Hopefully with some cleaning I can get a few more dates off of them.

      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.
