More wartime treasures

I had another opportunity to visit the area we’ve been hunting where the Army had their Red on Blue war. I always hope to find a personal artifact and this time just a few feet from my parking spot I found two dog tags about 40 feet apart, but they belonged to the same soldier. I understand the reason we find these dog tags is that guys were being reissued new tags with less personal information on them in preparation for overseas duty. I was able to find the obituary of these tags owner, and unfortunately he has no family left to accept return of the dog tags. He was awarded a Bronze Star while in Europe: [www.findagrave.com]

After that prize I was able to locate three wheat pennies including a steel penny, a 1943s war nickel, a 1943s Merc dime, a 14 kt pen nib, and a couple of unbroken wartime Coke bottles.

After a long hot summer our fall weather has been very nice for detecting. Still using the Deus with the elliptical coil, and mostly the stock “Hot” program.
