What Will You Find?

2 Hunts = 2 Civil War Tokens

I went to my brothers house for another cookout today, and his kids wanted to detect some. After we eat some grub we hit the yard swinging. I only had about 25 min. to hunt it was getting dark and the bugs were out. This was the 3rd target came up a solid 12-47 on the E-TRAC about 8 inches down.

This is the second token I have dug, here and only hit the property a total of 50 min. between the couple hunts at his house. I think I'm going to comb his yard tomorrow, maybe use the TTF program.

The spot where I have dug these two tokens is where a swimming pool used to be, so I am trying to find out if this is fill from somewhere else or a place they dug up.

My brother wife's parents owned the house before they did and put in the pool so they are going to ask her parents if they brought dirt in and if they, did where did it come from? If not this could be just the beginning. Thanks for reading. Enjoy the pictures.
