What Will You Find?

Oldest and First!

Well after about 6 months with my Safari, I have found a first and oldest. I was detecting a new spot that I received permission to hunt not even 4 blocks from my house. I just got started, not even a half hour into my hunt I got a great high tone, with a 39 on my Safari.

I dug about 5 inches down and what do you know, an 1837 large cent pops out. I couldn't believe I found this so close to my house! I am still in shock over this and now it has peaked my wife's interest into this hobby.
