    50 Copper Year

    Had my best year for coppers ever in 2011, mostly because of the discovery of a virgin mill site
    late in the year that produced 33 coppers for my hunting buddy and me over a four day period.
    In past years I've found spanish silver for every 7 or 8 coppers, but this year I only found one
    half reale, which I gave to the kids that lived in the home where the silver was found.
    Highlights of the year were finding a nice Vermontensium landscape state copper, a decent NJ
    copper, several Connecticut coppers, and a Woods Hibernia in good shape.
    In 2012 I'd be happy to have my copper count come down a bit if I could manage to find some
    Revolutionary War bits and pieces, and an early American silver.
    Hope you all find what your'e looking for in 2012!

    I hear ya. I could go all year and not dig any coppers and be happy as long as I could get one early american silver or rev. war button.
