    That indeed was an incredible year Rick! Your volume of great finds is staggering, that is a ton of coppers, and so many quality silvers. Congrats, and I wish you an even better year in 2014 (if that's possible lol!)

    You call it smashing, I call it checking all the boxes to be successful and claiming your treasure. First you have to live in an old area where there is great sites to be found, then you have to put in the effort through research or walking fields to find those sites, and lastly you have to spend the time digging lots of targets to make your way to the good stuff. Take just one of those keys to success away and the year goes from a great one to just pretty good, or maybe of all things, normal. I've had a few of those perfect storm type detecting years and for various reasons can't see it happening again.... so enjoy it while it lasts!


    Having another coin year like that will be a lot to live up to, but I can see you doing better on old military at some point.

    "perfect storm" I like that, and it was much like that. Sure there were some bad days, maybe a half dozen, but most days it just came together. A couple of days in particular sure were. At least a couple of those hot spots will be revisited.

    Rick I hope we are blessed with great weather this spring and summer, we deserve it after the horrible start to winter. I've never seen it as cold and icy as it's been so far. -47 wind chill where my father lives on Moosehead Lake. Hope things are better for you guys but I'm sure you're getting it as well. I've been researching like crazy and can't wait to get on some of the early 17th century islands I've located. Gonna be a great 2014 for all of us buddy. Stay warm and I hope this year you find that one amazing item that makes your entire year great

    A phenomenal year, Rick. You put in the long hours and research and it shows. I can't imagine finding such a pile of coppers. (ok, maybe I can ) I'm sure 2014 has some more surprises waiting for you. Keep digging!

    Fantastic year Rick, definitely one to remember! But you have it well documented, so you can always go back and reflect on it when you're too old to dig anymore.....wait, you still have plenty of good digging left in you! Here's to 2013, may 2014 be even better!!

    In your last picture I found two of the items before but don't know what they are? Bottom right corner of the picture and it's the second and third things up.
