A place in the mountains with a history......A metal detector.....
Both Dave and Joseph got metal detectors for Christmas. Dave got his from Mom and Dad, Joseph got his from his Auntie Moe and Uncle Jeff. They didn't communicate or coordinate, each came up with the same idea independently and selected identical metal detectors. Great minds think alike.
The next trip to Mt Hamilton included metal detectors.
They found evidence of target practice. Using many different guns. These were all found very close to each other.
The dime in the photo was minted in 1964, but you still see some of those in circulation, so it only means it wasn't lost before 1964.
Since 1964 is the year of Dave's birth, I can tease him and say he has been lost since 1964!
They also found some very old square nails and a piece of metal of unknown function. The treasure they found was a fun day.
Joseph wants to take his to the stable next. To find spare change that falls out of people's pockets when they are mounting. As if people who own horses have any spare change left!
