    Working The Fields - Sullivan County

    I went to this Farm in early spring but the owner was not around. I tried again a couple weeks ago and finally caught the owner. He gave me the go ahead. He told me he would be around for a couple more weeks then he was headed to his winter place out west. This land has some early 19th century history and I haven't found a coin from that century yet. I made my way down there for a 40 degree Friday. This was probably going be my last chance for this season. He showed me part of the field where a house use to be that he tore down in the 70's. This field had beans in it and the other field I wanted to be in had corn. So I opted the beans. I spent a good six or seven hours in it. Just a few steps from the car I hit a 195- wheaty. Nice start. Finding the normal things, trash a lil slaw. Then I get another 80 - 81 signal 2 inches down. I dig it and see it's a IHC. I'm thinking that they were in the 1800's and slowly wipe the dirt away saying pleaseeeee. Needless to say, somethings don't come easy. I did find another wheaty, my oldest, 1910. There is also a 1931 Indiana chauffeur's license, a small pendent with a P on it. Some lead seals, a button and a shotgun head stamp from the eary 1900's. The one thing I need some help with is the copper handle from a small cup. It has some thickness to it and I can't seem to find nothing close to it on google. If anyone would like to throw in their thoughts I sure would appreciate it. Thanks for looking and GL & HH withing old man winter knocking.

    That Indian means there is probably silver somewhere nearby

    Nice find. Keep at it, you will get your 19th century find soon. Earliest find for my in NW Indiana was an 1837 Large Cent.
