I hunted a yard in a nearby town today using a Garrett GTAx1000. Looking at the house you wouldn’t expect much. Average frame home built in the 50’s. I figured it might be good for some silver Rosies or the likes. As far as coins, I didn’t find any silver just wheaties and a 1953 play coin. I did, however, make an interesting find with a locket. It was corroded shut and looked to be fake. When I got home I had planned on throwing it in the junk jewelry box but after prying it opened I saw that it held a little surprise. One of the photos was still intact. Pretty cool if you ask me. The locket won find-of-the month contests at several of the clubs and most recently won Vaughan Garrett’s Favorite Find of the Month.
