I met up with T by the park near his house and we hunted there for a bit. I managed to find a mercury dime, silver ring, wheat penny and clad while T found clad. Then we went to his son's house - one on a 1874 map and things turned around. T found an Indian head penny and SLQ while I found clad. My oldest find was a flat button and a 1948 Jefferson nickel.
Today I plan on meeting T again in the park.
