    Found us a new Colonial site... Coppers & Buttons



    Out for a couple digs with Ironhorse as usual, but the Patriot paid us the visit and stole the thunder, and I guess the lightning too! Man he dug one sweet coin... then a real sweet one 15 minutes later. I think I said "I can't believe that just happened" 6 or 7 times. That was after I called him names and said to leave a couple for the good guys. (me) Anyway, enough about that and on to my finds.

    I certainly dug my share of targets and did have some decent results, though the coppers were pretty brutal. There's a 1781 Hibernia, 1731 brit. George, a bunch not worth talking about, and a very nice 1696 French Liard. These early Fr. coins very rarely come out in decent readable condition. The buttons I made out a little better on. Dug quite a few in total including a few large ones and one of the best condition I've ever found. Also got a Rev War Royal Provincials pewter pretty busted up, and a nice silver 15th. The last item I believe is a very large lead seal but that's just a guess and it will be going on the what is it forum. >>>> (ID'ed as a Lead toy sun Dial.) The last picture is a group shot of all that was mentioned above plus everything else found. Was a great hunt, one the Patriot deserved after a few not so good ones. He was smiling ear to ear when he left... and I have a funny feeling he'll be back!


    PS... Kirk PA... You have no game like that.

    Well IP, just with the finds you posted you had a great day! Love that one button, really cleaned up nicely!!

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Really... never would have guessed that. Is there anywhere I can get a look a better condition one? Certainly a first on that one.

    Not sure its the first one I have seen. I have seen similar toy clocks but not sun dials, I think its circa 1790s-1820. When calendar coins were popular for religious events. Rich kids toy.

    The site definitely had lots of targets from that range so that dating does fit.

    It was a great site but the right target just didn't happen. A site like this would have usually given us at least a few very nice early military. (The 15th was from another field)
