Dear White’s,

How many times have I heard research, research, research? Well it finally paid off!!! I was told by a farmer about an old road that used to go through his property. The old road is about three miles long on which two other farms had been. The road itself is overgrown with trees and shrubs closing in.

Nothing left of the farms but foundations now with the fields overgrown. I saw an old family cemetery on this road with just one headstone left standing. It was hard metal detecting because it is all the overgrowth. I found tools, scrap metal, a crotal bell and broken glass in what must have been the barn.

Then I started to check out the cellar hole, that’s where my luck and research paid off. I found in the soil several coins under a small flat rock about 5 inches down, the soil was rust colored from the remnants of a metal container. I have included pictures of the two best coins I found. I'll be doing a lot of research these cold snowy winters here in Maine. Research can pay off!!!!

Proud owner of a DFX,

Brian F
