    and it had going rates (mostly with Indians) for items
    it said what they would give the Indians for stuff and what they would ask them for other items
    it wasnt all trade like people think - we started giving them coins and them getting them back
    and of course early settlers screwed them back then too
    one entry was
    sold Indian one musket - then repaired musket... right after - probably flint fell out and seller charged arm and a leg for another
    one spot it had 4 apples for a KG - so I guess you could get one for 1/4
    That is so cool I’ve never found anything cut

    Hey Casper is that journal available online by any chance? It would be a very interesting read I think.

    P.S. My smallest silver is an 1853 Trime.

    Kreuzer's from Germany are the smallest silvers I have ever found. I was lucky enough to find 5 while I lived there.
