Hot digging but in the shade of big trees

Back to oyster cove, moved more big downed limbs, saw a beautiful box turtle and pulled a few more goodies from 6-8". 1881, 1887 IHC 1910 wheatie, gold plated earring, a fired lead pistol ball. Be safe and the hunt continues. Peace Roy

    There was a gold rush story that a huge tree came down in a rain storm. The roots pulled up a massive amount of earth and gold nuggets. Reminder, use my White's Gold master at fallen trees. :)
    Nice finds!

    I have not heard that story, but certainly feasible... particularly if the tree was near a stream, or where one once ran....Cheers, RickO

    @johnny9434 @""No Headlights" @Jimnight @metalmeister @ricko Happy Sunday detecting friends.
    Back to oyster cove where I dug a small military button bearing a CW style #5. 11.8 mm, no markings on rev other than a raised dot. Sharp nail like post for leather or wood? Anyone with a button reference, an ID would be nice. Peace Roy

    @metaldetectinghound3 this particular locale I call oyster cove was some kind of rest area for sure. Lots of old fresh water oyster shells. The 2 splitting wedges forged from railroad spikes was an interesting find here last year. Have a good day. Peace Roy

    Is the 'cove' you are searching near the ocean? Or just what seems like a popular picnic spot? Summer parties with oysters also usually meant copious amounts of beer...which could explain - in part - the dropping of coins in such a prolific manner. Cheers, RickO

    I'm easy of the Delaware river, uphill from an old railroad right of way, approx 30 miles n/o Trenton NJ. I'll try to take a pic today. Peace Roy

    We moved from our old house back in 2009 - I used to detect all around the yard. Most of the coins were found in a perimeter around an old elm tree in the backyard. The earliest I found was a 1917 cent.

    On older homes, the location of the clothes line was usually good for some finds, as well as the family picnic table area. Strangely enough, old gardens often turn up coins as well. Cheers, RickO
