One of My Most Cherished Finds

One day while at work, A good friend of mine told me he bought some property with some old houses on it. He said I was welcome to detect there if I wanted. Needless to say, I was so excited. Getting to the site one evening after work, I was floored by how old the houses were. They still had stacked rock foundations, so I knew it was gonna be a good chance to find some goodies.

I found a lot of nice coins there, Barber dimes, wheat pennies, a Three pence coin, a Penny from Japan, small jewelry items, and several Tax Tokens. But my favorite find was this GAR Medal for a Lyman U Humphrey.

I am very proud of the Medal, it is one of my most cherished finds.

Thanks Minelab for making such great detectors. The memories of the finds last a lifetime!
