    Few coppers, some buttons, a thimble... and oh yeah... Colonial Silver :)

    WAY too tried to say much right now but the day didn't go as planned, but because of that it triggerd some old research I had done and sent me back to a certain area to try again. The field ended up having nothing, well almost nothing, just this 1750s era French Silver 12 Sol. I'm cool with the coin but I think the early to mid. 1700s settlement is in the next field over Everything points at it being there and we'll be counting the days until the crop is off.

    The coppers still have to be cleaned. They are an 1812 token, 1820 Trade & Navigation token, Indian Head Penny, and French 6 Deniers (1710-1712) Also a Taylor Brothers sawnut and other odds and ends.

    If it's tiring you out, perhaps you need a lighter machine

    Looking forward to seeing what's in the next field

    Holy crap I.P. Can't get much better than a 12 SOL. I'll bet you are salivating to get in the crop field. It wont be long now. I would imagine the harvest up north in Canada will be done shortly. A great find indeed.

    I like the square nails the most. IP, you cleaned up all of Canada with those recoveries; well, you at least cleaned up in that field in Canada. The Colonial silver is the day maker...and probably a year maker once the season is over.

    No, the pizza and beer after the hunt is what did it.

    Unfortunately I think it will be a month or so before we get in, and with the silver coin being the only thing in the field along side I can't say for sure the settlement wasn't already detected... all assuming it's where I think it is. Access is a little harder than most other places so I feel there's a good chance it would be passed on by others unless they had the same research done. I guess only time will tell, but if it works out it will be one heck of a day detecting!

    I can't remember the last time I found a Tiffin... nor do I care when I find the next one! They're all yours!

    PS... Thinking a little more I think this coin might be 1740s or 50s by the little I can see on the bust. No biggie either way.
