Metal detecting church yards produced these Barber coins.
That Saturday Sam was knocking on my door at 8:00 in the morning , and off we went with our White's metal detectors and coffee in hand in his little yellow Ford. We decided to hunt only old church sites that were built before 1900. Since Sam grew up in this area he knew where to look. First stop was Myerstown at a church built in the 1700' more
  Metal detecting ground cloth for coins and relics.
Ground cloths are perfect for metal detecting. They are extremely lightweight and easy to carry on the S-Hook. All dirt removed from the hole should be placed on a ground cloth instead of the grass.

Indian head cents found while metal detecting in the woods.
I found the usual shotgun shells, lead bullets, and brass shells, but no coins. I was sure there were coins in the woods because if there were hunters pulling shells out of their pockets, coins could also be easily lost. But then another thought occurred to me. Loggers! Our particular piece of land was logged in the very early 1900's. I knew of more
  Bull Durham watch fob found while metal detecting in a school yard.
This was a good day of metal detecting and one would think you would come back as soon as possible but it wasn't until the first day of May that I came back to Clinton elementary.
