    Two cent coin pocket spill, large cents, and buttons

    CTTodd and I rambled into uncharted territory today. Our destination was a site that is remote enough that we needed to use Todd's ATV to get there. We had a pretty good idea where the cellar hole was that we where looking for but once we got to there we didn't see it. Since there was so much land to explore we moved on until we found another promising site that was not on any of the maps I have researched.
    Fortunately the detecting gods where looking down at me today. I end up finding three large cents and a two cent coin pocket spill.. I have never had that happen before. I also found some nice buttons. I am working on getting some videos up of the hunt.

    That is a picture of CTTodd on the prowl for Colonial coppers.

    some very nice finds! WTG!
    Everybody has an opinion - this is mine. Humor will be part of that opinion. I've found things - some can only dream about. Some was pure luck, some was pure knowledge and skill. After 40 years at MD'ing (off and on), I know a few things about finding treasure lost in the ground. As a retired software engineer, I now have unlimited time on my hands. Life really doesn't matter unless you are true to yourself and in your dealings with other people.
