First, Happy Birthday! When I look back I can recall many occasions when I decided to spend a birthday out enjoying the greatest outdoor sport there is. I didn't always make a lot of interesting finds, but I sure enjoyed every moment trying to.

Second, a 'Way-to-Go!' pat on the back for having a successful day afield. It only takes one old Coin, one neat Trade Token or one Unique Object to keep from being skunked and you managed to hit all three opportunities!

Third, I always enjoy reading about the detector, search coil and the settings used, so 'Thank You' for that information. At times I forget to mention it myself so a tip-of-the-hat for providing readers that information.

Fourth, and the thing I am most curious about, is the flip-side of that Trade Token? Through the years of hunting 'Rippville' we have seen a lot of tokens found that originated from places/tons in Oregon, Idaho, California and I think one other places but I don't recall. That town never had a railroad make it there, with the closest rail head about a dozen miles away, so it's interesting to see the wide variety of tokens found and wonder how they got there.

Just travelers on the old wagon road, 'real' cowboys, and a lot of activity to get so many pieces ending up lost on that forlorn little town. We've seen some from Vale where I live, from Nyssa where Gregg lives, and towns like Baker City, Juntura, Ontario, New Plymouth, San Francisco, Sumpter, Westfall and many more, plus quite a few 'mavericks' that do not reference the town they were from. Does your token describe the business, the proprietor or town of origin?

And Fifth, we're glad you had a successful day afield at a townsite I enjoy hunting, and Gregg has been hard-hunting since he got into detecting almost 5½ years ago. We never mind sharing a potentially productive site with a good friend ... no matter how old they get. winking smiley

I wish I would have been able to enjoy the day out there with you, Gregg and Rob.
