What Will You Find?

One Lucky Swing

I was out one day looking around at the local school. I had been hunting for about two hours and only had about two dollars in change. As the day light started to fade I started to head back to my car thanking that I had turned off my detector. With the machine by my side. I started to head down the steps. When my detector went off with a loud tone. I scan to see what made the loud sound . My machine read a 45 on a X-TERRA 505 @ 4 in deep. I dug and seen a beautiful silver eagle and a FFA lettering. Cleaning off the dirt I seen I had a big silver FFA ring. Thank you MINELAB
