    2014 Highlights

    Ok I haven't admitted defeat yet. But I prob can't get out until Friday so wanted to do a best of 2014 wrap up. I've prob found at least 30 bug early coppers but am only posting the cream of the crop. Was lucky to find a lot of nice shoe buckles as well. Well here goes. I'll start with the relics then go to the coins. Hope you all have an incredible 2015

    Fantastic year Abe! I see you saved the best for last in that sequence

    Best of luck in 2015, I'm sure 2014 was just a warm up year for you!

    You've had a stellar year!

    We all have dreams about recoveries like that and you go out and find them.
    I'm looking forward to seeing what next year will bring for you. . . have a great New Year

    I was scrolling along, oohing and aahing till I hit the "dream finds" section of the listing. As I was looking I was not even aware that my idle hand had suddenly grabbed a long beaded straight pin and was repeatedly stabbing the little Abe doll over and over again. And I like to think of myself as a mellow, laid back person. It's amazing what this hobby will do to you.

    BTW: I love all your finds shown but know there are a ton you didn't show that I also like. Hope 2015 is even better for you then 2014. You deserve it.

    You had a great year, and now must see the potential of what an incredible collection you will have after 20 years of digging. The bonus is you get to enjoy every little bit along the way!

    Oh Man! Lots of good stuff. The bells are neat, and your buckles are in extraordinary shape. loved all your coins too, but the Mass. silver is unreal! I can only imagine what you didn't show. But I really enjoyed seeing what you did post. Great Year.. More to come this year, I say! Nice showing. Wish we could squeak in one more...

    Hay in my book the pine tree shilling alone would be equal too finding 300 mercs or more! Anyway,,, thats some sweet finds. I hope you keep record of where each item was found.

    Thanks guys! Beez and Eastern, yes I left a lot of nice stuff out. I've found a bunch of Draped Bust LCs and I've found two 1797s. Also a bunch of KGs and some random stuff that I really like such as a 17th century spoon. But I didn't want to post a million pics so kept it simple.
    IP, yes I'm seeing the vision now. I now can picture displays with some of the nicer stuff then if the detecting gods allow one very special display with those crazy killer dream finds. I figure if I have 8 or 10 of those at the end I'm a happy and fortunate man.
    Helix, I've kept great very specific journals detailing every hunt since day one. I've also kept a great picture record with site names. That is always a piece of advice that I give the new guys. It's very important in my opinion. Thank you to all for the nice comments

    Wow Abe - that's a jawdropping number of amazing recoveries for a rookie relic hunter!! But I'm even more impressed with your love of history, and your strong desire to get in the trenches and work hard at finding new and potentially productive sites. You're definitely doing it the right way, and I couldn't be more proud of ya. And I'm really enjoying our newfound friendship, and looking forward for that to continue. Anyway, congrats on a fantastic season and hope to see many more amazing finds from you in 2015 ..... Bill

    Thanks Bill! And yes you are stuck with me as a friend, like it or not lol. I'm still going to ask you questions you've already answered and I'm still going to email you about some spot that I researched that I'll probably hike miles through the woods to get to and find half a colonial button :-).
    In all seriousness I truly appreciate our friendship Bill. It'd become obvious to me that our brains work very much the same way. Neither of us is ever quite satisfied and we are both determined that we will find that dream spot. I'm sitting here this morning as a matter of fact surrounded by old maps. It amazes me that you can read something or look at a map a hundred times and suddenly you see something that you've missed 99 other times. It happens to me all the time.
    I wish you the best in 2015 my friend. You sure blew us all away in 2014 with that beautiful silver coin that had us all scrambling through our Whitmans books to see what the hell Bill just pulled from the earth....amazing

    Oh did I forget all my half cents? Oh wait a minute I don't have any lol. Or I have exactly the same amount of 2 Reales that you have. Oh George it's been a hell of a lot of fun becoming friends and sharing finds. I'll never forget sending you a pic of a dirty tree coin and you being almost as happy as me. That's a good friend right there. I hope 2015 treats you very well. I'm going for a long one on Friday. Might as well try to start with a bang!
