    Hammered silver Cob & Capped bust silver!!!

    I had quite an afternoon hunting the "fringes" of my 1670 colonial site. This fringe area is where I've always suspected the oldest finds were, but never found anything older than the 1870's. Until today.

    First up was a nice Barber dime to warm me up and get me into a hunt I was convinced wasn't going to be fruitful. A great start!!

    Next I came across a signal surrounded by iron. It was low at 12-42 with iron everywhere. The iron hit was slightly off-tempo from the high so I dug it. BOOM! A capped bust liberty dime!!!! 1834. Elated I check the surrounding area. Nothing for 20 minutes then...

    I happened upon a washed out section of grass, about 3' from a COLONIAL road. It was a one cent signal,12-41, on the CTX. It sounded crisp and clean unlike a cent, so I dug it despite being 3" deep. I said to myself before I dug, "if I don't dig this I'll always wonder". Praying for a seated dime I was surprised on what happened next. Well there she was, a beautiful cob!

    Charles 2nd 1-real cob, Mexico mint. 1665-1700.

    And more help with the cob ID and narrowing the date is greatly appreciated. Also much appreciation to my pal Bill of VA. for listening to me giggle on the telephone, and for steering me in the right direction for ID.

    Happy hunting!

    Really bro? Capped bust and 17th century cob. I'm voting Banner for the early cob and capped silver on the same hunt. That's just silly man!

    The coins are as good as it is perplexing why you are looking at your screen and considering, even for a second, not to dig a hole at that location.... especially with a coin signal! If you need help just reach out, we are here for you.

    Finding silver from 3 different centuries in a single hunt is an incredible feat Steve. Definitely a day to remember. Thanks for sharing your excitement with me from the field.

    Oh man that is sweet! I've found good colonial finds a foot or two off "modern" roads ( originally a old road of course) too. Glad you dug that one huh? Super hunt, a capped bust and cob in the same hunt is just ridiculous! I can't even imagine WTG!!

    Thanks IP. Yeah, now I'll never even think about it again. So I guess I can skip the IP Metal detecting asylum? Lol
