    Ugh, its not even close. Those in the colonial zones have about 300 years advantage on most. I've dug tons of silver over the years but its not even worth comparison to the things posted here.

    Great finds, absolutely wonderful!

    Coins had no use in the fur trade, which was our colonial history.

    This cache of 4 silver trade brooches were guarded by the thickest bush ever.....

    The Robert Cruikshank star brooch was big for me as star brooches always seemed to be cut up into single points (perforated) and hung as jewelry or tassels for garb.

    This next silver cache contains the three remaining on my top four silver finds list.
    It all has been catalogued and stored in a safety deposit box so, the pictures I have are limited.

    Always wanted to find a big ear wheel and this one's special.....

    I apologize for all that other stuff in the photo like bracelets, ear-bobs, crosses, and brooches.
    Had to show them because of a poor single photo of my #1 top silver find which is a silver gorget....

    This first signal was a "RC" large circular brooch, then came the earwheel and by then I was flipping out!
    When I tried next to the hole and got an even bigger blast, the thoughts "please be a gorget" actually came into my head and there it was!
    Then I got to dig a whole lot more!

    I really enjoyed looking at everyone's silver finds. Thanks for sharing!

    So happy you posted your finds on this thread. I am blown away by these incredible colonial trade items. I consider my Luckenbooth brooch one of my most cherished relics....though it pales in comparison to all of your finds. That gorget is really incredible man. It's all incredible! I don't even know where to start. Just really happy that you added to this thread.

    Breaking my own rules but after seeing the 1782 from VMI it brought back great memories of the first 2 Spanish I ever found....which were both 1782-2 Reales. Iíll also add in the 1664 cob I found with the tree coin and a really nice 1802 real.

    Nice! This is kind of embarrassing but I never noticed the break in the 8. Thanks for pointing that out. I was a newbie when I found those.,

    Thanks Ahab, I think I bent the rules a little too much so It's not your fault.
    Incredible coins you posted!

    Don't put down the Luckenbooth brooch as it's older than my three "Owl" brooches.....

    Ooops, there I go breaking the rules again!

    Thanks also Steve, the first picture of 4 brooches came from a different site than the remaining silver.
    I have big plans to sift that large cache area, as I found some random bone hair tubes and a few unused gun flints digging up the silver, so I'm hoping for some major bead action there!

    Now that I got some of this silver out of the way, how 'bout a thread full of sexy iron?
    A metal detector can only do so much..........
    It's up to you to do the rest!
