    The PA boys surrendered even before Ironhorse got in his first hunt. True!
    We won, mainer. IP knows it as well. Rare CTs, rare 18th century copper pipe, rare General Lafayette wax seal, rare 1844 James K. Polk political medal, 1773 VA copper, Pistareen, and a ton of early relics.

    PA boys for 2011!

    You're exactly right. And it seems that year was between 1800 and 1820. Only two brass harps found in KY and Southern Indiana by the Iron Brigade, and one or two iron ones--out of hundreds and hundreds of different sites over five years of digging by multiple hunters. I'm sure they're out there, but it tells me that the popularity of harmonicas had already arisen by the time Kentucky was settled--and the few, rare Jews Harps we've found were leftovers that folks brought with them (same thing with the large "Dandy" buttons, which are almost as scarce in Southern Indiana).

    In terms of finds, those are excellent, IP! That cannonball is the icing on the cake. What's its weight?

    Even here the the flat buttons don't turn up everywhere and are usually good sign it's an old site.

    The ball is 10lbs. There are a couple of lines in it and I believe cleaning might reveal the rest of a broad arrow.

    Yep another good year for you Ip. I was just sitting here wondering how in the world does he and alot of the guy's up North of me find so many button's. Then it hit me our(southern) other finds seem to be close in comparison other than your cannon balls items.My theory on the button count though is that it being colder up there meaning they wore more clothes so more buttons to be loss.Sounds good anyway.
    Take Care,

    I only dug 90 buttons this year. Very good point, Pete! It looks like he dug around 600.

    Think my total was somewhere between 450-500. Remember we find quite a few new sites per year, and just a so so hunt can produce over 10 buttons. I've had two years that i dug about 1,000.

    Re: Extra Large with the works - 2010 wrap up

    That is quite a load of finds.
    I guess the half round in the box is not a coin ?
    Some super coins there. I like the eagle token too.

    Funny how we want to find what we don't have yet, as mentioned the jews harp, with me it's just a skeleton key.

    There was many common things that avoided my coil for years. A skeleton key was one, and a silver thimble another.

    It is, cut piece of a One Penny.

    Re: Extra Large with the works - 2010 wrap up

    That is a LOT of digging. Lots of nice relics, buttons, and coins. All in all a great year, one that I would love to have. I must say though that I am a little disappointed that it appears you just throw everything in a box. I firmly believe we should keep relics from important sites segregated.

    Maybe if I had important sites. I know where all my better finds are from and that's really the only thing that counts for me. Most of that was from older house sites that didn't give up anything special, just the usual old targets.

    that's it ! next season I'm only digging rare things,,,enough of this digging dozens of targets and wearing myself out....

    I'm going to take a page from the PA playbook...except I'm going to hold the trophy high instead of the passion,
    good luck in 2011, see you here among the winners!!!
    ...if you think I'm a pain in the neck, it's lower, lower,little bit lower, too low, higher, there ya go.....
