    How was your Th'ing year (2018)?

    I couldn't get out much metal detecting as I wanted. I did have a coinstar streak going. I had a few good finds. I enjoy seeing everybody's finds on here! How was your year?

    Sucked. Don't get out enough. One gold ring. One silver ring. '63 Ben, one Merc, one Buff Nic, and twenty or so wheats. Not sure how much clad, maybe $20. Well below my goals.

    Most of my year was pretty slow, except for December. The reason for that was because I just couldn't find a good site, everything was either empty, hunted out, and/or trashed. Between February and November I did manage to find both halves of a nice early 1700's spoon mold, a couple complete shoe buckles, and a good amount of buttons and maybe some other relics. My only coins were a rough flying eagle, a few Indian Heads, a Merc and silver Rosie, and a bunch of wheats (Nearly all pre 1920 for some reason). In December, after finding a decent site, I was able to find my anti stamp act button that made banner, 5 or 6 coppers, an 1812 button (my dad found one too), a huge complete shoe buckle, many shoe buckle parts, and a ton of colonial buttons. My dad also found a complete silver knee buckle at that site this December.

    As far as water hunting, this was one of my better years. But my land detector needs repairs and so I barely took it out. Hoping for a new one this year.
