    1753 Pillar 1R, 1845 Seated HD, Hibernia, Britannia..etc, VIDEO ADDED

    UMRGolf2000 and I have been on a down streak the past couple of weeks and went out of the field yesterday

    dejected and with our heads down......NO COINS in almost a month HOWEVER,,,,,WE RESOLVED, that

    we WERE going to find a hot spot today and decided to hit a field that we had never hit before but have perm-

    ission. We had some inside knowledge that there might have been a colonial housesite on it. Well....our

    source came through in a BIG WAY!!

    First TWO holes dug by Jeff and I and we BOTH got a copper coin:

    You can see my hole in the foreground and Jeff next to his holding his large cent in back.

    Over the next hour and a half we pulled up a few more coins and buttons all over.

    I dug this nice:

    By the end of the day we had dug multiple coppers and I had dug a Reale and Jeff was scanning like a maniac

    trying to find that last minute silver coin that had alluded him all day and DANG if he didn't find it. IT was dark,

    when he pulled out a 1845 Seated Half Dime

    Here's a pic of both of our Silvers BEFORE cleaning:

    VIDEO TO COME TOMORROW!!! UPDATED: VIDEO ADDED

    NOTE: I'm note pulling a fast one in this video, I've already pulled the Reale out of the hole to show Jeff and it
    is still in my hand when I start to film the hole that I dug it out of and I place it on a clump of dirt next to the hole
    so that I can show it to y'all.
    P.S.--KKC, Jeff gives you guys a little Nod

    Excellent day!!!! Posts like that will put a little extra spring in my Spring digs!

    I've wanted a real like that for a long time, and that clipped-stamped silver is great! I suppose the Hibernia is too toast for a close up? Always interested in those.

    Hey IP, all the older coppers are pretty toast but u can make out the harp and Britannia on the older ones.. Josh said he'll get some close-ups today and we got a video.. It was unbelievable man.. 3 1/2 hours.. On the way I was telling him I would give anything for us to both get just ONE coin

    Yeah I know how it is on a bad streak and wanting a good site. I'm starting to map out fields and I have a ton that look like they have some good potential.

    Hey IronPatch, look in the last picture and look at the dark copper with oil on it to the right and you can just make

    out the outline of the harp in black. I'll be posting 3 videos of us digging some of the coins before the batteries died

    and will try to get some closeups once I clean them up alittle Sentinel

    Think you will find it is, the counterstamp is a kinda justification that its solid silver.

    I'd have to say you 2 were correct in your assumption of colonial homestead. Spanish silver is always a welcome addition to anyones collection. I especially like the Milled Pillar variety.
