    That coin looks more corroded than pitted so should clean up well.
    I hope so, would you attempt cleaning this yourself if you had found it ?
    Guess the grass is always greener over the other side, I'm always hoping for a nice Cob,
    Found two, both are toast....

    You've got my stats beat: I'm at 2 Mass silvers and 0 cobs. A nice cob is now at the top of my wish list.

    My father's ancestors settled in early 1600's in what's now Massachusetts, New Hampshire & Vermont, so colonial items from these states are of special interest to me. My dad, who was born & raised in Keene, N.H. was apparently the first of the family in several hundred years to head south for warmer climes when he moved to Washington, D.C. as a very young man. Several times in the past, I visited the Keene area, which is so beautiful, and saw some of the well-made houses that my great-grandparents & other family members had built with their own hands. These houses are no longer in our family, but it feels good that people still live in & enjoy them. Andi
    Thanks Andi,
    There is an active local MD club in the Keene area, I went out there for their 'Best o New England 19'
    festivities last year, George Streeter organizes these events that raise money for
    St Judes Childrens Hospital and the Wounded Warrior Project.
    He also arranges some very successful MDing trips worldwide, Carribean, England and Europe,
    My hat's off to this man for his efforts to further our MDing public image and charitable causes
    through the "Professional Treasure Hunters Historical Society" and the 'Bone' events.
    Take a look, there's a lot of good info here: Streeter's :: Home of The Treasure Hunter's Gazette, BONE, and PTHHS

    Indeed, wasn't exporting silver to the colonies a capitol offense?
    this was a pretty smooth coin, bust right and a 'II' on the side.
    I'll be looking for it today.

    Thanks Silver Tree, looks like you have a fine shilling there on your avatar, is it a large planchet pine
    My shoreline searches are salt water, which makes for issues with condition, even a mile inland you can tell
    that salt has affected the metal, they are markedly different from those recovered several miles inland.
    BUT, since the coast was where first settlement was made, and more commerce occurred, the type and age of
    recoveries are better in general.
    If you're in the northeast shoot me a pm...

    Thanks Oxbow,
    Cobs will turn up, from what I read, a lot of the silver in the tree coins came from the 'Caba de Barras',
    one report states that a major reason for starting the mint was the large influx of Spanish silver brought to Boston
    by the 'Boucaniers' in the 1640s, which by design were more subject to clipping...
    Did your lovely shilling undergo any cleaning before you took the photos ?
    Best wishes & HH

    I have read a little on the history of the Mass silvers, but I would love to find some more resources. The pictures in the post are after a quick rinse in a puddle. I did a more thorough rinse afterwards, it definitely looks better now. Once I get access to a camera that has a really nice macro setting I will post some more pics.

    Thanks Arty,
    Got a theory on why 4 diverse coins were found in one hole.
    there are several pieces of evidence I've found that bear this out.
    The old cartpath was widened and the top surface was scraped off and pushed over the hillside in the late 19th century, along with everything that was lost on that path since first settlement.
    As stated, the four coins were recovered almost accidentally after detecting maybe 20 square feet of area.
    ( iron whomp whomp whomp)
    In between all the iron pipe, rusting barrels, modern trash, dense undergrowth and vicious thorns could be a lot more goodies.
    Research brought me to the general area, chance brought my coil over the coins.
    I haven't been back since my first visit.
    When I told the property owner about the coins,
    I was cut short and asked to just make sure to inform him if I recover any gold.
    Well, a hammered gold has always been my grail
    Got enough of those darned milled ones
    HH All !

    Nice to find good items far from the sea, even a mile inland there is salt in the dirt,
    I got a wire brush for my grinder, maybe I'll try to make this one prettier

    Very nice find indeed! Can you post the titles of the books that your quotes are from in your original post? Would like to see that James II too--I found a James II crown (gun money) a number of years back, but that was found in England and I guess after he was off the English throne (1698 if my memory is correct--which it may not be ) It's also in a safe place somewhere in my house--I will have to try and find it again one of these day, LOL.
