Digging is the Best Medicine

I haven't been out detecting since the house of dimes.  I've been feeling under the weather for a week straight.

Today I was feeling somewhat better and I just had to get out, I couldn't take being stuck in the house any longer.

I went back to last week's site.  I figured with the amount of silvers I found, there had to be a few I missed.



But I was surprised - we must've done a pretty good job the first time around, because the signals were few and far between.

Like last week, I started to work the original swingset area.  I kicked up two wheat pennies in the same hole and minutes later I got a silver dime signal.

 I dug up a 1953 Rosie.

Right around the same area, I found this really neat button that I have yet to identify.

Here is the button - just dug.

 and here it is - cleaned up.

I also managed to find a neat 5-cent play coin.

 Play coin - front & back.

One interesting find that came up today was

 a little brass pipe of some sort.

After a good two hours, I decided to call it quits. 

 Today's keepers.

It felt good to get out of the house and into the dirt.  Sometimes digging is the best medicine.
