    catch up.

    A friend of mine let me use one of his detectors about 3 months ago, the first thing i found was a 1919 silver dime. I was hooked. so I've been detecting once a week ever since. so now for a few of my finds. My first nice find was a 1/2 penny about 4 inch deep at a house built in 1780. next was the fugio 1787, hunting a 1800's house. found it about 5 inch deep. next was a draped bust large cent with no date in the yard next door, she was 1/2 inch deep. I like finding coins, but wish the detail was better. so 6/22/13, I head out on another hunt. 2 hours and I picked up a 1817 large cent at 1 1/2 inch deep, 1857 flying eagle cent at 2 inch deep and a 1852 large cent at 2 inch deep. turned out to be a great day. finely some coins with detail. I also found 2 buffalo nicks and 8 wheats along the way. Click image for larger version.

    Those large cents are great. Can't wait to get back to that site next week. I'm sure there's still a few more there to dig up. I'm a little jealous about the flying eagle. I've never found one of those..... or a Fugio for that matter. Argentium.... the one copper is an Irish halfpenny. I was there when he found that one... and the Fugio... but the other ones he found on solo hunts. You're having a great "rookie" year. There will be more coppers... and silvers... to come.

    Since your post title was so underwhelming....Lol.. I figured I would bump this one to the top for you again to give a few more people an opportunity to see those coppers. It's not every day you see Fugios and Irish halfpennies posted... and the condition of those two large cents you found is superb! Hopefully we will find a few more like that if we get to go out tomorrow... Hope the rain holds off.
