    Favorite Non Coin is prob this Patriotic Political button from the last quarter of the 18th century. I just love what it represents

    The closest find I have to the pine tree is a 1655-58 French Liard, and to think I was all happy and excited as happy as I would have been with a pound of gold. I think if it had been silver, 3-6 years older, and have a pine tree on the front it may have compared, but for now your pine tree sixpence makes my toasted copper look like a zincoln compared. I remember when I found that you said that you hoped to see me there soon, lol, I think that happened.

    Congrats on the find of the year IMO!

    Coinman123,
    Thanks Coinman. You have made some incredible finds and some very early ones at that. You obviously put yourself in the right areas for the early colonial stuff. So keep doing what you do and you'll continue to find those nice old keepers. One day you'll get a rare one. Or maybe a super rare one. I hope that happens. I enjoy your posts and comments

    My favorite would be the day I dug this 1661 Hungarian hammered silver coin and the 1708 cut piece from a Spanish 2 reale.

    That's funny because when I found it it was still covered with dirt when I walked over to show my buddy. When I brushed the dirt off I had it oriented so that it read 1991. We both looked at each other and said 1991 That confusion lasted for about a second
