What Will You Find?

Silver was Jumping Out of the Ground

Recently I was given the heads up from the parks department, about a sports field which was to be renovated. I invited 4 other detectorists to come and enjoy the party. The city had removed 3" of sod and soil prior to tilling sand into it to improve drainage. As a group we recovered 102 pieces of silver while the site was open to us. My take from the field with the CTX 3030 was 50 pieces. Thanks Minelab for making a superior machine. I am having a blast.
