    2014 in review

    2014 was the first full year of detecting for me . Nothing record setting but a good start to a great hobby.
    the totals...
    silver coins: 19 (oldest 1852 seated dime)
    wheaties : 123 ( nothing rare)
    indian head cents : 19 (the best 1864"L" and 1872 )
    buffalo nickels : 8 (3 no dates)
    V nickels 3 (1 no date)
    Large cents 2 ( 1827 & 1829 )
    3 pieces of silver and 2 pieces of gold jewellery

    I hope you enjoy my year as much as i did ...

    Appropriately enough the next signal after that buffalo was a buffalo nickel. The marching soldiers my father found the mold for it 30 years ago along with about 30 more marching soldiers. Imagine that your a kid and play time meant 'lets go melt some lead and make soldiers" . times have changed.

    LOL Yea now they would probably come in in Moon suits & dig up all the lead spills.
    while they rush the kid to the hospital for tests

    imagine all the 90 year olds out there who won't live to 200
    Because they played with Lead

    Nice year you had Dave. Glad I got to see you find part of it! I wasn't impressed with my year to do a close. It's good to see everyone else have good ones though.
    If there is no truth in your words, you may as well be mute.

    Great year! You found some really awesome stuff. Love the two Seated's, but I'm a Crotal Bell fan at heart. Still trying to join that 1700's club myself.

    Sweet finds, hopefully this year is as good or better for you! I also find that holed "I love you" kennedy to be quite interesting, wonder what the story was.

    Times have changed, but thankfully people with sense still exist. As a kid in the 90s my father had no problem with me melting and casting lead into mace and flail heads and other things. I also blew a hole in the fence in 5th grade with a home-made cannon, but the parents didn't know about that until afterwards, hahaha.

    I intend to make sure that my future children get to enjoy similar pursuits. As attractive as video games and TV and the like are to youngsters, I bet I can keep them from going to "the dark side" .
