What Will You Find?

Sometimes Iron is the Treasure

Brought the CTX 3030 to a new Colonial Site. This place has been a bit slow off the start: a NJ colonial Cent, 1812 Artillery Button and a few Round balls and buttons.

I focused on 2 huge trees overlooking the river, after a half hour of trying to avoid the Iron, I decided to start digging it. Sixteen pieces of Revolutionary War Era Canister / Grape Shot right where I thought would be a great spot for a gun placement.

Great spot, lots of layers to cut through and the CTX 3030 does just that!
