Thread: Group pic of my colonial silver coins - almost 200 of them!!

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »

    Group pic of my colonial silver coins - almost 200 of them!!

    I've been working on some of the hundreds of pics that'll be going in my colonial artifact book that I've been working on for the last year, and finally pulled out all my silver from the numerous displays for a group shot. Can't believe I'm approaching the 200 mark, with half of those coming in the last 5-6 years. This is a large file so you can click on it a couple of times to zoom in to see better details for the individual coins. And my slabbed Lord Baltimore sixpence is not included in this pic. Enjoy!

    I’ve mentioned before that my new book can be a great holiday gift idea for a family member or friend, and I’ve noticed recently that many are purchasing a copy for that very purpose. However, time is running short, so anyone interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should do so in the next week to ensure delivery prior to Christmas. Ordering your copy is as simple as clicking on the PayPal link at the bottom and sending $59 + $5 shipping. If you’d like your copy to be personalized by the author, or just signed, please indicate so in the PayPal notes section. Anyone not familiar with this comprehensive publication can check out the info provided below for a detailed description of its contents plus comments from buyers. Thanks for your support.

    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS — AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover.
    If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US. If you’d like to check out some sample pages from the book, as well as scan the Table of Contents to get a better feel for what the book is about, you can click on the following link: http://colonialartifacts.com/2017/10/book-description/

    All that English Silver without touching English soil is amazing Bill. Having seen your displays you must have spent a lot of time digging through cases and disrupting everything. But, dang that picture was worth it! I wish you continued success both hunting and with your book buddy.

    That's quite a collection Bill. Have you caught up to Stan yet?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like you have very few of the Pillar style Spanish milled coins.

    I just re-read this article the other day (actually I had never read the whole thing). I found it interesting that the merchants of Richmond banded together to try and eliminate the use of cut pieces,

    I could never get an exact count from Stan, and I know he was way ahead of me at one time, but I've done a lot of catching up over the last few years. Overall I'd say its probably a toss-up, although Stan has sold or given away some of his. He definitely has me beat in the cob department, but I have a big edge with hammered silver thanks to that one site.
