    Underneath all this stuff there are still colonial treasures ! Mass. copper

    Hit another in town city owned lot today ! Really just an extra wide median / gully between two major 1 way streets in the city, 30 yards wide in places ! over a 100 yards long. I knew it was going to be trashy ! I also knew it was in an old part of town ! There was so many signals I was getting discouraged.I was digging nothing but clad and bottle tops and not really seeing any signs of of older activity and after an hour I was thinking about heading to a site that I have already done alot of the trash signal cleanup on when I got a good sounding tone and and at 6 inches down I turn out a couple of oyster shells and just underneath these I got the hand cuff ! It has been cut by the way ! I knew this was an encouraging sign. just a few feet from there I got another good tone and again about 6/7 inches out amongst the oyster shells pops a large cent. I knew right away by its size it was not a coronet and probably a colonial copper so I put it in a keeper bag and go back at it. About 10 yards away I get another decent hit and now have a half penny in my hand . Some #of clad and bottle tops later I find the thimble and finally the small buckle ! Checked my watch and it was time to leave. 2 and 1/2 hours of hunt time in and now I was feeling good about my hunt ! I drove home anxious to see what the 2 coppers were . I dumped my trash bag onto the driveway and pulled the clad out of my pocket which included a full roll of dimes I had also found this morning. 50 dimes in 1 hole ! As soon as I took the coppers out of the keeper bags to lay on top for photo the coins had dried a bit I could see the eagle and was very excited ! An 1788 commonwealth of Massachusetts cent to go with the Mass militia button I found 2 weeks ago !! Unbelievable !! I could get no detail off the 1/2 penny but the Mass copper is in pretty good shape !! Thanks for looking MaineRelic.

    That is one OUTSTANDING copper! It has to be one of the Finest--if not THE FINEST example I have seen dug!

    Bravo to you for tackling a Trashy site and forcing it to cough up some goodies. Fantastic!

    Re: Underneath all this stuff there are still colonial treasures ! Mass. copper

    Thank you all for your kind comments to my post ! I am still on cloud nine Today ! Though the Massachusetts Militia button I dug two weeks ago and the Massachusetts cent I dug today were dug on opposite ends of the city a few weekends apart I feel as though I were reuniting them so a photo of both together for all of us !! Thanks for looking ! MaineRelic.

    That coin is brilliant. Tremendous find. Doesn't beat a few pots of silver but it comes d-mn close!
    Thanks for sharing.
