I found my oldest penny Tuesday at an 1836 church site in Indiana. The place has been hunted well but I managed to find a couple of wheats in the 4-5 inch range and a couple of deeper clads. I also dug a few pieces of deeper trash that sounded great.

Then I got this really short but fairly loud 25 chirp. After working it a bit I got it up to 28. As soon as I dug my digger hit a root. So I took out what dirt I could and went it with the Garrett carrot to pinpoint it. The pinpointed started screaming so I figured I had a piece of trash so I went back in with the digger and popped out the target breaking the root and there she was! What a shock! My guess it was on edge under the root.

There is a lot more hunting there so I plan to head back soon.
