    Yesterday's hunt

    Got out with my good buddy Dan yesterday, and we hit one old site and 3 new ones. We spent most of the day at a very promising field in a historic area. We just knew we would stumble across an early colonial homesite or 2 in this huge field. Never found what we were looking for, but did make a few finds in one remote corner of the field. Overall my finds were rather paltry seeing how we hunted for a full 8 hours, but at least I came home with a few keepers. I guess my best finds were three 1860s coins, and that spur part was pretty cool too. And I dug several parts to an eagle coat button in one spot. I didn't see any fresh dings on it so I guess it was already in pieces before I opened up the hole. All-in-all it was a fun day with great weather, and I'm looking forward to getting into some more new spots soon with hopefully much older finds.

    That center piece looks like a picture frame. Friend found one with the remains of a tin type in it, along with an ink bottle and pen nibs.
    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    Paltry? Bill, you are fortunate to live in area that can produce a wide variety of relics. Some 3 ringers and an eagle button makes for an outstanding hunt in my neck of the woods. Your finds are cool.

    Should have been an archaeologist, love anything old:CW relics, arrowheads, Pre-Columbian. Best finds: AVC cuff button, CS staff button , 4 US plates, CW fleam, 55 cavity marked Enfield bullet, CS Script I button
