    2014 The End

    A little late on this, but busy getting books done, and a failed frozen dirt dig.

    The numbers were down a lot mainly because only hunted about one third as many days as the past couple of years.

    This year 2014, 25+ days hunted, 26 old coppers, 8 silvers, 2 were Spanish.
    Last year 2013, 70+ days hunted, 154 old coppers, 38 silver, 6 were spanish.

    Even though the numbers were down I managed a couple items off my top ten wish list, 1) a dollar sized Silver 1808 8 reale, and 2) an IDable 1600's coin, 1650 french liard.

    Some firsts include a toy soldier, and a silver thimble although it was crushed, and cut in half.

    Got a rare 4th reg. rev. war button, so all in all I'm quite satisified for the effort put in. If I can cross one or two items off the top ten list next year, I'll consider it a success too.

    The lot of it.

    I'm all about quality, so to me the few better keepers make it worth while.

    Rick even though the quantity was down this year, the quality was still there. Your 25 days out is just more than what I got in this year. Hope you tear it up in 2015.

    Hey I heard they need a little help over on Oak Island. The asked me but I gave them your number

    Very nice finds. The coppers are great, but that reale is just mind blowing. Congrats on making me envious!

    Yup some killer quality items there. The numbers are fun but those incredible display pieces are where it's at. Hope you get more hunting in this year bud

    Just looking over all those great finds and seeing the quality might make you forget about how much hunting you've done and more about how wonderful your finds were!
    The coins, buttons and relics are all top notch; you did forget to mention the railway switch key, to me , that was your winner; the cool factor is there!
