    Connecticut Copper and Spanish Silver

    The boy and I hit our ole Colonial property for a little bit this evening and found some good ones.
    Things were slow with out too many hits, mainly iron. We were digging the iffy hits hoping there was another hot spot on this property.
    I was the first to find digging a solid 80 on the AT Pro at 6". I flipped the plug and saw a greenish coin laying in the hole. At first I thought I had another KG from the thickness of the coin. Picked it out and couldn't believe the detail on this coin, 1788 Connecticut Copper. My best big copper and my second oldest coin, Wow!!

    It didn't take the boy long, probably 5 mins. later and 20yds. away. I see him flip a plug and his cigarette drops from his mouth. He looks up at me hardly able to speak and says "Spanish Silver". I walk over to him and he says, anywhere but here and I wouldn't have dug this hit. He got a 76 on the AT Pro and not deep. When he flipped the plug the Reale went flying. Lol
    His first Reale and our second from this property, not a bad hunt...

    Great going on both coins. As previously mentioned, the CT is without a doubt a M.2-D. It's one of the most common of the CT's and easily the most common 1788, but it's a really nice one. You don't find coppers often that look so good coming out of the ground.

    The condition of that copper is crazy...they usually don't come out in that kind of shape...plus a spanish...great memories with the boy

    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    But that seems to almost always be the way.... the one time you get condition you don't have the rarity.
