    Thanks Big Dan.
    I only wish I could dig silver like you. Keep up those videos in 08'. They are a fun to watch. I need to learn how to do that myself.
    Looking forward to a record season from you next year.
    Happy holidays,

No silver seated, standing, walking, or crawling yet either. I did find a few nice coins though, and a ton of other goodies. I can't post it all, but below are some of my nicer 2007 finds.
    I have learned a lot about my machine this year, and love to get out to MD as much as possible.
    The experiences have been wonderful, the wealth of knowledge here has been unbelievable, and the TN members are FANTASTIC. I just want to say "THANKS" to all of you for your support this year. When my Dad passed away in August, I truly think it was this hobby and you great folks that got me through that tough time. I hope everyone has a great holiday season, and an awesome 2008 MD season.

    O.K., enough of that mushy stuff. Here we go:

    COINS
    Pictured are my IH pennies, Buff Nickels (1 war time nickel), silver quarters, and silver dimes (mostly Mercs).
    My two best coins were:
    *A late 1700's counterfeit Carolus Spanish silver piece of 8 reale. (Thanks Don for the ID)
    *A key date 1868 IH penny.

    BUTTONS
    What I lacked in coin finds, I made up in old buttons.
    I dug over 60+ old buttons ranging from the late 1700's to early 1900's. Most were 1800's.
    One of my favorites was an 1812 era button with "Strong Forever" on the back mark. (Thanks PBK & Warren Tice for the ID)

    CIVIL WAR
    I did fairly well with the assortment of bullets, musket balls, relics, and buttons.
    My favorite two CW pieces are:
    *Eagle sword belt plate. (Thanks Josh for the ID)
    *6 lb. Bormann cannon ball piece (Thanks Josh for the ID)

    Tags / Tokens / Keys

    RELICS
    Some of the larger ones pictured, but too many to post.

    TOYS and TOT LOT TRINKETS
    My favorites were the cannon and the 1940's lead soldier (medic).
    I'm still taking the training course from BDoo on playground MDing.

    JEWELRY
    I did pretty good on gold and diamond rings this year. I sold a couple to fund my MD hobby, but they are pictured here too.
    My favorite two jewelry pieces were:
    *A 1930's deco look 18k white gold and 6 diamond ring. Found on a farm.
    *A large 10k gold nugget and 7 diamond ring. Found on a playground.

    Thanks for looking everyone.

    Booty,
    The fat lady (me) hasn't sang yet. I still have a few weeks left to go this year, but thought I'd do my post while I had a minute. I would love to score that elusive Barber coin before year end.
    Yes, I sold that beautiful old ring, and I've regretted it ever since. It was a one of a kind, and the company is still in business today. They do custom jewelry, and still had the design drawing from the 1930's that they sent me a copy of. Now I'm really feeling sick.
    Good luck out there.

    Thanks Nat. You've had a great year too. Your ring count was fantastic! That idea you had of working with the realtors was a great idea. Good luck next year. Looking forward to your posts.

    RMac,
    No, just the iron eagle piece itself. I dug it on an old farm spot I hunt. Not sure if it was originally a clock, or an old stove piece. I was told it was an 1800's mantle clock originally.
    Here is a picture of how it looked when I first dug it up.
    HH,
    MM

    Thanks TC.
    It's fun to relive these finds at the end of the year. I remember a lot of the great stuff the TN members have found this year. Simply amazing!
