Metal detecting Monday

I went out yesterday for an hour or so. About 38 degrees, but I was pretty bundled up. Searched a local school field and found 33 coins worth $2.27. OK not bad. 79 cents of it was a spill about an inch or 2 deep. I found 2 quarters, 2 dimes, a nickel and 4 pennies within about 8" of each other.

So far in 2009, I've found 286 coins worth about $20. Last year I was way ahead of that by now, but we had no Winter last year. This year the ground actually froze for a few weeks. But my favorite treasure is finding rings, and I've found 7 so far this year, that's way ahead of my pace the last 2 years when I found 32 and 45 rings, respectively. Aargh.
