Treasure Hunting on Hancock Street
This afternoon I dug out the metal detector that's been gathering dust in the upstairs closet for years now. I loaded it with new batteries, hauled it down the trail at the end of the street, and did a little treasure hunting. Under the big rope swing on the killer hill, I hit the jackpot! $1.30 in change and a bronze screw! I headed back home and gave the yard a try and scored an old nickle at about six inches deep. Treasure on Hancock Street! That's $1.35 total!
Here's the break down:
9 Lincoln pennies
1 Canadian penny
1 bronze screw
Not a fortune, and nothing older than about 1970, but pretty fun none the less!
