I haven't posted recently because I have been detecting on the town school property and not finding anything exciting. Lots of gum wrappers, pull tabs etc. I did get about $4 in coins over that last week or so though. I call this my "Get Rich Slow Scheme". It's nice to get out during the pandemic and do social distancing and enjoy the nice sunny spring days.
I am a Quaker and I help to maintain the Meeting House building and grounds and have been doing some garden maintenance for the last few days. Today I decided to go over the lawn with my detector again. In the past I had not found much, but the ground conditions are ideal - moist soil is more conductive so I can find deeper signals.
As I explored the lawn area I found several items that were over 8" down. The best find was this pocket watch, I bet this was missed by the person who lost it!
Here are some closer pictures:
And I found this item that seems to be a brass button with the initials RMR with a C around them.
I also found a quarter and a few pennies. Not bad for a half hour!
