That sandy soil treated your finds quite well as everything seems to be in incredible condition. You were fortunate to find those at a detectable depth as my experience has shown that relics and coins in sandy wooded areas or yards generally sink beyond the capabilities of any machine. Maybe the roots played a role. Regardless, I know you couldn't be happier with those finds. Congrats on a fantastic hunt!
    Hi Bill,

    There were two old homesteads (farms) across the street and I believe there may have been an old pathway across this lot that was used to get to a source of water for the stock. Most of the coins were found withing a swath the size of an old way. I was concerned about the sandy soil taking targets out of my range and I have to say some of those coins were just at the edge of my detection range. The Parys Mine Co token was the deepest but also the largest of the coins. I sure hope there wasn't much more down there that I missed. I included some reference coins with my post so you can see all of the detail on the original coin. The 2-Pice coin is in excellent shape and the PMC token is in very nice condition for a 1788 copper. Thanks for your post Bill

    You might not say that it you saw my typical hunts. I get skunked like everyone else--this just happened to be an exceptional one.

    Good call hitting that wooded lot. But that is one crazy coin spill. Some unusual coins in that one.

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Thanks JD19 - I have not seen the Penny denomination posted here before either from the States or from England. It's a beautifully designed and struck coin by the Parys Mine Co, much higher in terms of quality that what was officially being produced at the time.

    Incredible variety of coppers, many of which you don't see often, if at all. Some days the finds just come and you feel the magic; other days it gets disheartening. Yours was certainly the former! Definitely a site where money was exchanged or where there was consistent traffic as you say, perhaps related to the ports nearby. I'm voting banner--variety and rareness found in U.S. (and all in 1 hunt) seals it for me. Congrats! (Pic below is the mystery disc I found with you in NJ; looks like one of your finds above.)

    Hi James! Nice to hear from you and thank you for nice words and the Banner vote! Yes there are similarities with both mystery coins--I'll have to measure the diameter of the one I found to do a comparison.
