    Wow Abe, you had some year. Anyone of them could be a best of the year for many people. BTW, if you didn't know, the Connecticut copper is a Redbook listed type known as the ETLIR as the last letter is an R instead of a B. Great finds and hope you have another great year.

    Relic Hunting
    If I was a newby your yearly totals post would truly inspire me to hunt colonial sites only, to get one or a few of the many truly great looking finds. Wait a minute Abe I've been looking at the ground and digging in it for 50+ yrs, in the blood bad, and looking over the post I'm truly inspired to get back out there in freezing temps dig through the frozen crust to find something.
    To tell you the honest truth I don't much like the cold, really I have to dig deep to even to think about digging in cold weather, but that's the plan because your post is a true inspiration for the new and seasoned hunter.
    Thank you for your passion in digging history and sharing it with us all Abe.

    Pepper you've always had thoughtful replies and always been super supportive. I appreciate all of that more than you could ever know. I spend a lot more time researching than I ever do in the dirt. I just feel like I have a very limited amount of time to hunt and I want to be as prepared as possible. Oh yeah and I absolutely love love love local history. I read and look at maps for hours. If you're not into it and passionate you're not going to find your potential. If you don't enjoy being out in nature you won't either. If I strike out with the finds I still got to get out and see a few animals and beautiful scenery. Good day in my book. I am going to the earliest site I've ever stepped foot on tomorrow. Only problem is that it was a very short settlement. But one find from a place that early would make my day for sure. Happy New Year to you my friend. I hope it's a great year

    That is one heck of a rookie year end post.
    Just for comparrison, it took me a few years to finally get a complete silver spoon, and I have yet to get a complete shoe buckle.
    Yep, a lot of nice stuff there.

    Good luck out there when the ground resoftens.

    Thanks buddy. It's def surprising how these shoe buckles seem to jump out of the ground for me. I think it has a lot to do with hunting the edges of historic river banks. It was prob rough going out there and maybe that's got something to go with it. It's been an incredible first year and to top it off with a Mass silver was incredible. I'm excited about this season and ready for the research. It's -28 wind chill this morning and -45 where I grew up. The older I get the more I hate the cold.

    Quality over quantity. Great finds Abe, you have a knack of finding very detailed strong struck coins, besides the knack of almost killing yourself looking for them. Have a safe and productive 2015!
