    1700's gold broach, Kings American Dragoons Rosette and other great finds

    Well managed to get the household chores done and got away detecting for a full day…most of the morning was a bust with some research that just didn't pan out, so we go to a good back up field that we wanted to try for some time now. The site started off great with first signal being this Brass Bridal Rosette from the King's American Dragoons, a Loyalist Calvary corp that formed in New York, 1781-1782. then finds were just random drops so we go to a great looking new site and I popped out early signs with pewter spoons pieces and bowl…then what is a hunt without finding another trade axe and a half of one. I then get this pull tab or small lead sound on the machine and sure glad I dug it… a very early 1700's gold broach weighing in at 4 grams, this was from an early french site which also produced this cufflink with silver back glass front with gold inside, I think Iron Patch has more info on it… then out popped a Geo I and Geo II coins…there were 15 early coins popped out today with none being silver…just waiting for next time out…Lots of buttons but no further military ones… also managed a harmonica with wood still inside, jack knife and crushed sheep bell…

    Pretty epic for our area, and not bad for anywhere else either! The Dragoon rosette is easily a banner find, and so is the French gold brooch that's about equal in weight to a half Louis D'or! Then a Stuart crystal button from a cufflink circa. 17th century, trade axe... and the rest. Damn!

    The back of the brooch may help confirm the age. I'm not sure how they attached back then but with a little googling can likely figure it out.

    That sure was an epic day. Whips Iron Patch's day and his crusty coppers.

    That gold brooch is stunning, but the Kings American rosette is more my style. Big congrats on finding some amazing dirt.

    Ouch..somehow I don't think he's going to let that one go…. We were both saying earlier this was one of my best hunt since him and I got out a number of years ago...

    Your title says it all "Great Finds" That broach is out of this world. That rosette is special, (thanks for the brief history).

    And that's with the first half of the hunt being a complete bust! I'm sure there's a silver or two there, and who knows what else. You stole the show this time around though, I gotta check my stuff to see if I have anything interesting I missed yesterday.
