    My Best Colonial Bonanza: Two State Coppers + More

    KKC got out today to a new field. It was located in prime Colonial ground and the weather was perfect for digging. I was the first one to dig a relic. It was a cuff tombac button. After that, the bonanza happened! I dug the beautiful King George II only a foot away from the button. I was pumped! I really do not remember the order I dug the coppers, so I will tell you what else I dug. I popped out a beautiful 1787 New Jersey copper, 1787 Vermont copper , and a 1781 Irish King George III in about 30 minutes of time. Every high signal turned out to be a Colonial copper.

    All of the buttons were either tombac or Dandy. It was purely a Colonial site. We found no 19th century artifacts on this 1/4 acre of ground that the relics/coppers were dug. I am still in disbelief on how many Colonial coppers (11) were dug at this site in such a short period of time. I hope you guys enjoyed my thread.

    Keep the passion high!

    Dude, that's a Vermont! But that's good because it will probably be easier to ID.

    You guys were certainly in "the zone" there Kirk. Congratulations on a great hunt. I like those tombacs with the design. This is the kind of site where you may finally pop an identifiable Rev War button.

    Sweet hunt, Kirk. That's the good stuff.
    Hope Steve is right on the possibility of finding some Rev War stuff there.

    Kirk, here's you're Vermont. Too bad it's common, but that's not a big deal because it would have to be quite rare to be worth anything in that condition. Knowing the variety is as good as it gets for many dug Colonials.
