Treasure Finds and Stories
1843 Large one cent penny with my Garrett
I have been metal detecting for many years as my dad got me interested in it when I was a kid. I have been driving by this little lot for years and always said to myself I should stop one day and metal detect that spot. With kids and work its hard to find time now a days. Until I found myself with some free time on my birthday so I headed over to that spot. Well all I kept finding were chewed up soda cans it was very discouraging and I was almost about to quit for the day. Until I found a few old Square nails. Then I got a great hit 5 inches down and my Garrett GTI 2500 nailed it dead on. I pulled up a 1843 large one cent penny five inches down. Now I got the fever all over again like I was younger.
