    Don't look at this post if you have high blood pressure!

    Hello All,

    Although I have been lucky enough to dig many nice items in my 20 years of metal detecting, my Best Find from these two decades was walking onto this site in the spring. There really isn't much of a fall season for this hobby here in Louisiana (unless two weeks at the end of December counts), so I thought it would be a good time to share the grand total of finds from this incredible site.

    First, Colonial Era clay pipe stems:

    This photo is a sampling of the daily items used at our Tavern. Jew's harp, shoe buckle fragments, solid silver spoon, barrel taps, a lid to a Georgian Era ale jug or beer stein, thimbles, locks, and the business end of an iron skeleton key:

    Shipbuilding and water-related items. Lead fishing sinkers and bronze nails from boats. Not pictured is the 30 lbs of bits of lead flashing from boats we have dug.

    Some of the favorite finds from the site. A Belt Axe, clay marbles, Spanish Colonial sword guard with a family crest (upper right, with the castle on it), Georgian pocketwatch winding keys, English gun flint, two "Russian Blue" trade beads, and an emerald setting from a ring.

    We have identified two spots as possible trash pit areas. Once they roll and raze the fields we intend to dig some test pits. We have a narrow window to get this done, between the razing and the rowing up of the new rows.

    Ohhhhh maaannnnn! I'm hitting 210/120. This is just sick. Sick I say! Everything you dug this Spring will put you in the "Hall of Fame." I am ready for some more Cajun Colonial digging from you guys.

    Time to rest now or I am going to have a stroke.

    I can see why you'd think that. The folks that have been here for a while know that I don't tell whale tales on the forum. Some thought I did back when I hunted in Kentucky, but I posted everything--even when we didn't find much. My ego ain't that fragile

    Anyhow, welcome to the forum! If you'd like to see some eye candy, go to the annual finds section for 2008, 2009, and 2010 and look at my posts there.

    Best Wishes,

    Well it's now looking more and more like the cap badge is spanish colonial, which means I have finally hit a Major goal down here. Now I need to find French colonial and Louisiana confederate for the trifecta. Take a rest, friend. Don't have a stroke...until my next post.
