    Better Late Than Never--CaneField Bandits 2016 Annual Finds!

    Hello All,

    It was a great year for us in 2016, the year that saw us dig our 70th Spanish Silver coin and our 72nd Seated Coin in the past 5 years. While I dug some nice finds, it was my buddy Shangalang that made the best recoveries--including a Banner find with his Napoleonic-Era French Briquette Infantry Sword!

    At any rate, here are a few of the photos of individual finds from the field, followed by the onslaught of display cases that everyone is expecting

    Here's the star find of the year--Shangulang's early 1800s sword hilt!

    And my star find of the year was my first ever bit boss--and she's a beauty!

    Here are two of the best finds dug--a stunning 1782 half real, and a West Point Cadet button dug by Shangalang:

    I was lucky to get THREE Barber Quarters in one year. Crazy. Three years ago I had never dug one, and now I have dug a total of SEVEN of them.

    First off, here is DiggerGirl's display (my wife). She went out with us only two or three times, but ended up finding quite a bit--including some fine spanish silver and seated coins:

    She also managed to get a breechblock from an old black powder shotgun and some nice Schenkl Shell fragments. I got a lock plate from a musket:

    I'm trying to get her out more, but when she's free (school teacher) is the summer--and the summers here are brutally hot, so she doesn't really like to dig when it's that bad.
