    And we had a spectacular daye on a VERY old eastern shore site!

    Yesterday morning I picked up my detecting partner and then we met up with yet another fellow detectorist for a beautiful, nearly 80 degree day here on the eastern shore. Our destination was a settlement era site we had eyed up last year but the 3' corn stubble made it impossible to detect. When we arrived, there were 3 different fields and we started out at the most obvious site with some luck....buttons and trinkets and odds and ends. Then, dying of thirst went back to the truck to get revived. The 2nd field proved completely void of activity so we moved on to the last field...which seemed doomed as well. Then my detecting partner recommended we walk up the woods line to a very small rise in the field and walk back through the woods to the truck, that way we could see if the rise once was a home site. Guess what...IT WAS! And it was virgin...and it was amazing...and the newest coin was 1720 (can one consider 1720 new?)! And we had a spectacular daye on a VERY old eastern shore site!

    Shown is only a 2/3 portion of the relics and coins found- one of the hunters wasnt around for the pictures. I can count on one hand how many times weve found 6 coins dated in the 1600s on one site in one day -maybe this is a first for us. The oldest was 1664. My detecting partner got 2 Spanish 1 reale cobs and a 1696 silver sixpence! I got a 1681 1 reale cob and a 1698 halfpenny. Our other friend got a 1690s farthing and a 1690s halfpenny, it was too dark to see the dates on his before he left but they were 1600s. Also the 1720s halfpenny for a total of 7 coins.

    And if you want to count the farmer dropped 1874 indian head penny our other friend found then the total coins found was 8.

    And I am getting old because I am sore as heck this morning!

    HH, Gary

    Amazing!! The oldest English settlement in Maryland was 1631. I think you may have stumbled onto an important archeological site!

    Wow..............just...wow.
    I noticed that no-one really utilizes all the signature space provided, so I figured to be REALLY original I would make up the longest signature that I could and probably just leave it as one big run on sentence because all that punctuation just takes up way too much space-HH.
