What Will You Find?

A Ghost Town Barber

Due to this summers drought, I got a chance to hunt an old ghost town that is located under a lake in Okla on Sept. 28, 2012. After locating a spot that looked like an old homestead had been.

I started working the area in a grid pattern and after several hours of hunting, I got a 12-46 tone and after digging maybe 2 inches deep in a sandy silty soil, laying face down was my first Barber Quarter.
