Continued to pick up interesting keepers, a very old Chinese coin, a skeleton key with fantastic emerald green patina, an octagonal trade token, a 1942 Mercury dime, two Indians - 1880 and 1896 and a few wheats, including a 1919 that looks like it was stabbed hard with a screwdriver.
Time for lunch, so I took a break, and Suzanne called so we made plans to meet up a little later back at the park. And wow, what a difference! We had hunted out our site! We were begging for targets and both picked up some wheats, but the difference was night and day. Suzanne picked up a two nice things from another part of the park, and I did find my first ever old 3-ringer bullet. Suzanne took off and I went back over to our former hotspot to try to squeak out at least one more Indian, but it was not to be. I got a few more deep and promising signals, but they turned out to be wheats.
