Boring clad and my first Indian of the year; first silver coin of the year; and four more silver rings

Boring Clad, and other items.

Yes, clad is boring. But it's something to dig that's better than tabs while you wait for something better to come along.
And if you're finding clad, someone has been there to drop other things. My clad goal for the month was 1,000 coins. July is the month that I have access to the best hunting spots I know. If I don't make the goal, (which I won't) then it will be impossible for me to meet the annual goal that I set. There are just not many coin dense spots anymore and not much is shallow, or newly lost. So, every year there is less and less to find.

But I laid out all the other goodies that I recovered over the last four weeks, and it was a pretty good month. I recovered my first Indian cent of the year (1903) under an old maple tree, in an area that has given up nothing but modern coins. It's in beautiful shape. Right next to it I dug a wheatie covered in corrosion so that I can't even tell the date. Pretty fortunate for me that the Indian was not with the wheatie. And, in the same area I dug a 1964 Washington quarter, my first silver coin of the year.

Also recovered over the month were four silver rings, all on different days and in different spots. I got out to hunt a couple hours at a time from around 7:30 pm until darkness or rain sent me home for 18 days of the month. I consider it a detecting success. The zinc cents that I find:... just looking to see what's hiding underneath.
