Unexpected

Hello all!

I went back to the colonial I got the complete buckle at 2 weeks ago... I've been there approx. 10 times now... So I picked a location on the other side of the pond that I've been through, but with the let your feet wander method.... Today was 9 hours of gridding.... and it paid off !!

I started with a 10/35 in the first 15 minutes... and nice round ball @ 6"...

About 90 minutes in... 8/21 both ways... I was expecting a button... *shrug*

1861 Fatty Indian Head Cent...

I kept gridding... Musket ball... musket ball... tree tags... some trash....

I got a few 12/45 and 12/46's.... Modern coins :-(

Next signal... 12/46 12/47... I was filming all day an on the recording I said... Well 12/46 12/47 @ 4"... It's probably modern, but I'm digging it like its colonial....

1774 Spanish 2 Reale !!!!!!!

Talk about floating for the rest of the day.... OMGAWD....

I kept a swinging... lead... junk.... Then 12/42 12/42 @ 3-4"... I wasn't expecting a copper... and this thing is a STRANGE size... Smaller than the one KG 1 I have... Slightly bigger that a half cent and farthing.... Bust if facing right...

King George I 'Dump Issue' so 1717 or 1718...

7pm... I was spent... Elated... and get to mark 2 Reale off my wish list :-)

Thank You Minelab for producing a product that lets me have these experiences!!!
