Under the Root-ball

 Metal Detecting a Root-Ball in SE Pennsylvania 

This was my first time out since last fall and what a beautiful day. When a large 100 year old pine tree fell during a recent storm, I had to check it out. With my 6" coil I was able to get underneath the root ball. I never do any metal detecting or digging over the graves and was happy to see that the uprooted tree had not grown above the grave. After checking out the root-ball I worked the cemetery perimeter and found a few interesting relics including a 100 year old quarter.
