    My Second Most Productive Copper Site

    And a close second at that. This site had a narrower occupation period, mainly French and Indian War and Rev War periods. It didn't have any US Large cents or state coppers, and only one KG III. Everything else was earlier British halfpennies and farthings - William III and George I and II. I have 12 Spanish silvers from this site, which was another military and tavern site along the road to Fort Pitt from the east. This site is also now off limits, not because the property changed hands, but the people managing the property changed.

    The second best one I was able to hunt for 20 years and pretty much cleaned out everything but the deepest targets. The "best" site I was also able to hit hard for several years and got most of it thankfully

    Tommy, I actually have another site with 50+ coppers and 20 silvers, mostly Spanish. The coppers aren't as nice because the ground is a little harsh.
