    Favorite find of 2014. Lets all recap

    First lets call it like it is; just an excuse to show off our finds for a second time. I would love to hear everyone's favorite finds.

    Being my first year detecting, it was my first LC. 1802. I've found older and more valuable but nothing made me jump higher or dash through a field fist pumping.

    Well Scrappy you know it well. You had found a 1600s coin and I asked you to hold the door for me. The only find that's ever left me gasping for breath.

    Favorite coin find is the cut quarter of a 1797 8 Reales. Hard to say which is the favorite in non-coin finds. The enameled 1930's Chevrolet emblem, or the Sterling fish pin.

    Favorite find of 2014. Lets all recap

    The old coins are just breathtaking, I can't imagine finding even an 1800's silver coin but you never know,that time might come for me,hope so and kudos to you that have dug even older coins.


    That Pine Tree schilling is killer. My best find of 2014 was of course the CSA rectangular Atlanta Arsenal style buckle. Find of a lifetime and I know I will never find anything like it again but it still doesn't take the thrill of relic hunting away for me even though I found the Holy Grail so to speak early on. I would post a picture of it again but it's my avatars so no need.

    A beautiful assortment. Did that buckle come together or each side nearby one another?
