Lumber Camp Excavation with Ace 150

My wife and I discovered a turn of the century logging camp in Upper Michigan a few years ago. Using my Garret Ace 150, we got lucky and found the blacksmiths junk pile. She discovered the find of the day tho, a medallion commemorating the 16th Annual Wisconsin Cheese Makers Assoc. convention dated 1908. We confirmed this with the Assoc. (still active) and they WANTED IT! It's still in our possesion! We've litteraly uncovered 100's of pounds of metal ranging from horseshoe nails to 6' sleigh runners. The dig continues!
