I got permission to dig in the playground in a nearby town today. Apparently it is only about 2 years old. But I have always had good luck finding free money in playgrounds and today was no exception!
In addition to $3.47 in coin I removed a bunch of hazardous scrap fencing wire and rust screws that could have hurt the kids. Also an earring and 2 zipper pulls.
It was a hot windless day and I could only handle an hour or so, but will go back later so see what else I can find.
I have not had much to report on in recent weeks, mostly because I have not gone out much. But also what I did find was mostly trash. That's how metal detecting goes sometimes.
