White's Electronics

A few years ago I dug a bottle dump and found a sword. I gave up on the spot because the more I dug into the hillside the harder it got due to over burden. Someone at one time dumped dirt on top.

Well today I went back because I didn't feel like knocking on doors. I find the yes rate is lower on rainy days. So anyway, I dug a bit more into the bank. I wasn't finding anything special. I use a White’s XLT detector.

There isn't much metal here, I got a bit of a cavern going into the hill stuck the detector in and got a hit. I knew there was more in there. I started digging in and the hill fell in :( almost gave up but was curious.

I dug all the burden away and out came this. It's the second one of these from this spot. It has a name engraved in it but can't read it yet. I was very excited to say the least and it will go on the wall next to the other one. The other one had the handle and scabbard. Thanks for looking had to share I was too excited to wait.
