    1808 Tavern site gives up Spanish silver

    Today started off a bit cold. with temps in the 20s. after a meeting of the Rochester club, Johnand I decided to hunt a few areas around Southern Wyoming county.

    We decided to start at a recently cut corn field that had a hotel on it in the early 1800s. after locating the owner I went to ask permission. It was the closest Ive come to a rejection yet. He has a friend that detects who wanted to come over and hit the field. but he hadn't showed yet so he let us hunt the front half of the field. after about 2 hours we were wondering whether the hotel was there at all. The only thing we found was a memorial cent.

    next we went to get permission to hunt a large potato field near by but the owner wasn't home.

    it was getting close to 2:30 so we decided to hit one more place . an old tavern site that we've hunted several times before. this site has given up several draped bust large cents and buttons and has been hit pretty hard. after about 2 hours in the freezing wind with very few signals I finally got a decent signal. with the first shovel out pops this little baby. It is my second half real and by far the better shape. Its a good thing John was there to take the pics. maybe next time will be his turn.

    Re: 1808 Tavern site gives up Spanish silver

    Yes it was cold and windy! What a great half reale , that is one of the best looking ones I have seen in quite some time! Glad we got out and found some goodies! Well let me re-phrase that comment ........You found the goodies!

    But hey you can't find coins everytime out.....i will settle for my cool selection of Pottery shards, iron relics , a strange fossil, a pigs tooth and what I believe is the neck top of some old bottle........!
