    My 2010 Relic Hunting Season

    It was a great 2010 year for me in PA. I did not find as many coppers as previous years, but the Colonial relics were taking up the slack. We met some awesome landowners along the way as well. Considering we only detect once/week, I think I had a quality season. I am going to drink a lot of red tea this winter to stay warm and research like crazy for 2011.

    Totals:

    Colonial silver: 1795 Spanish 2 Reales
    Early-American silver: 1832 Capped Bust half dime
    Coppers: 14
    Buttons: 90
    Relics: 18th century Dutch copper pipe, 18th century Brown Bess butt plate, 18th century Jew's harp, 1844 James K. Polk political medal

    Keep the passion high!

    Kirk

    You had a great year, bro! Your last coin solidified that! Quality over quantity 99% of the time is the way to go!

    Let's pound the Colonial beast harder and more viciously in 2011.

    Kirk, without a doubt 2010 was a great year for you, finding a beautiful mix of coins and relics. I think your mix of finds is what most of us would cherish and consider a great year. Congrats again and may 2011 be just as good and even better.

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Re: My 2010 Relic Hunting Season

    Way cool cut coin., most unusual.
    The Pipe, well you know how I feel on that.
    Including the 2R, yeah a great year.

    Funny how it goes though, I ended with more coppers than buttons.

    Good luck out there in 2011.
