Utmike, I've been detecting since March of '65, and

Relic Hunting ghost towns since my first in May of '69, and I have never encountered any site that produced such a quantity, and percentage, of tokens has what we have taken out of 'Rippville'.

The first time I worked it, back about 1998, I recovered one silver dime and one beautiful aluminum trade-token. A 50/50 result is impressive. Then having worked it alone, with a couple of groups of people who were invited, or teaming up with Gregg, several others or my oldest son, Monte Jr., we have continued to average close to a 50-50 split of coins and trade tokens every year.

I believe Gregg could tell you an annual count since 2013 where the tokens come out the winner in quantity. Over half a century of very active detecting and I have never ever seen a site were you could reach that level of rewards, and quite a few had traveled a good distance from their home site, and that was never even a real Road Town.

Joel, you should have given the Apex some serious hunt-time.

Joel, the so called 'Iron Audio' term is used differently, brand-to-brand.
