I went back to the park today where I found the 1881 penny. Same grove of trees.
One tree about 40 yards from where I found the 1881 penny I noticed a square nail in a tree. About shoulder high.
Now, with everything I have read over the years in many books about treasure hunting stories, and I've read a heck alot of these stories, this is a good sign. Many of the comments on these stories is to look for signs on trees. Whether is be a mark or nail or something else.
I covered the area and didn't find much, but I have much more hunting to do in this area.
What do you all think about the sqaure nail what sign does it give?
Possibly this is an exact spot where someone slept in a camp? By the type of nail, 1800's ?
Should I leave the nail in tree? I could remove it without hurting the tree.
