    Wow great stuff! I too live in Maine. If you do the research you can get on some really early sites in this state. You can see my oldest in my avatar

    Btw Iím quite jealous of those beautiful capped silvers! Iím yet to find a capped or draped silver. Iíve found 1600s coins and lots of Spanish silvers....but the early 1800s American silvers escape me. Iím going to concentrate on some more modern sites this season. I say that every season but I somehow always end up getting sucked back in to searching out the earliest sites. This season I swear Iím not going to do that lol.
