    Hot Diggity Dawg 1757 Silver Sixpence and

    Hello, T Net , Mothers Day My Best to All The Moms out there Today was a hot one here in Jersey , close to 80 degrees . :P Near the old gristmill are a few cellar holes that I located last month . I started working around a pile of bricks that where piled up near a hole that likely was a well . The bottle diggers in my area really worked this place over . Broken bottles and junk iron has been stacked near trees . The first find today was a rat tail pewter spoon , a big one compared to most . Moments after the spoon an iron tea pot spout . I'm thinkin' must have been the kitchen , stone ware , and my first silver at this site . A small tea spoon with PROVE and silver smitty mark AB 8) I went into a diggin' frenzy when I found the spoons . :P First coin was a copper , holed , an has a rose on the back Dug parts of a wood stove . The kitchen was cookin' two more green discs ,1787 or 88 Jersey copper , reverse is toast and another mystery coin ?? . I dug a trench two and a half foot deep and started seeing chards , and more stoneware and glass . Another coin , this one is a black one ... silver British 1757 sixpence !! Felt good to be back , an eight hour hunt yielded some decent finds . I left there covered with dirt . I hope the pics tell the rest of the story . Thanks for stopping in 8) Dawg Update on silver spoon; I checked the silversmith site and found a silversmith mark very similar to ; Andrew Billings

    Great finds! Congrats! I have found a few spoon pieces, but they are always in pieces, or twisted into a pretzel. You should be able to get a date range on the crumb spoon by checking the hallmarks of silversmiths. American silver is often worth more because there were so few silversmiths here. The English guilds kept meticulous records and a very accurate trace is possible, sometimes even determining the town and address of the silversmith. Good work!

    Some very good finds. Congrats on the sixpence.
    I've been detecting since Jan. 2001. My oldest find is a lockplate to a flintlock rifle. My oldest coin is a 1837 Capped bust dime. My best find is a T. Miller Cavalry Button. I use a Minelab X-TERRA 705 and the BH Tracker IV at this time.
