Hi White's,

Saturday wasn't looking very promising, storms, one after another rolling through the day before. John and I had to go to plan B and then plan C. Finally we decided that site #1 had way too much standing water everywhere, plan B had grass two feet tall! Plan C was looking much better, with the cattle grazing the grass down enough for us to surface hunt.

Everything was looking good until we noticed as soon as we removed a plug the hole would quickly fill with water! We hunkered down and just dealt with it and before you know it John is hollering and sporting a big wide grin. He just popped out an 1852 three cent coin! I had let him borrow my other MXT, I'm thinking that he is doing a great job detecting with that golden horseshoe stuck you know where, lol. He is on a roll after digging the (CSA) Cub Scouts of America button last week, lol! Next thing I know he has a beautiful Calvary button with tons of gilt! Luckily I got a decent one with an officer's staff button. The MXT's really came through, even in really bad conditions, hard to beat them!
