    Fantasic finds!!! YOU are in a great area. A coin from the 1600's is amazing. Your heart must still be pounding.

    Do you realize a Puritan may have dropped it!

    I VOTED BANNER!

    Recovering history, one little bit at a time. Great finds. Would love to see a close up of the heart pendant too.

    Gotta vote banner on this one for so many reasons. You have just started to uncover what this site has to offer!

    Wow those are two great coins. Never seen them before til now. I'd keep hitting that spot. Up here they used those old shells as fertilizer, so maybe a garden area? Anyway nice finds deepdigger, and I'll second the Kirk banner vote.

    You have become one heck of a Colonial hunter, Deepdiger! I can't wait to see what else you dig in those heavily canopied woods. Amazing!

    I don't do this often, but this one deserves it. I am voting BANNER!

    Someone had to drop them but when ? that is the question out here some of my finds don't make sense surprise the hell out of me to ,you just never know but that book did help narrow down a few very old home sites that are long lost now Thanks for the vote Dd60

    The "upside down V" is called an inverted chevron and the mint is ...Saint Polten Mint. Years for that mint are 1624,25 & 26.

    I think you're right, and believe it's from the Hall mint.
