    Dec 31, I'm done. 2011 in review

    Well the BIG one eluded me again. Mind you I'm not complaining, I had a good year, and made some decent finds. Crossed a couple off the wish list, and broke my oldest coin record.

    So here's the lot of it. (most of it anyway)



    The Silver coin, 29 in total of note are 1720 Shilling, 1834 six pence, 1851 US 3 cent silver,

    1874 CAN. "plain 4" 5 cent silver.



    The best ring finds



    Some misc. compacts, pill box, thimbles, jews harps, ox knobs, skeleton key



    The Bells, 8 crotals, (half are nice, and sound good) and my first open mouth bell.



    The coppers, 59 in total pre confederation coins, includes 3 decent George II's



    The buttons, over 110 total, a good one is comming soon ?



    The buckles



    Weapon related. Ramrod thimble, sword pommel, really large shell casing ?

    Much lead not included.



    Around 58 hunts. Not shown are a few Canada large cents.

    Hey, only 90 days to go. Yep, I'll be counting.

    Good Luck out there.

    Great stuff Rick, looks like you had a productive year! You're lucky to have those OLD sites to hunt. Silver from 1720!?!? That's fantastic...love the old coppers too. Ninety days to go you say? I hope you're right...

    It all looks good to me, Rick! Fantastic coppers and silver and a sweet pile of relics. Congrats on your oldest coin! Love the crotals and I think a skeleton key will be at the top of my relic wish list. Looking forward to seeing what you'll unearth in 2012.
    Here's to a short winter!

    Nice haul Rick.

    I started mding one year ago and I want to say thanks Rick for the advice and insight you gave me. I would have wrapped my md around a tree and been done if you hadn't stepped in.

    You are a class act sir.
