    '09 Half penny, silver spill w/ steel penny, pewter spoon/dish, big key....

    1809 Half Cent that is....
    Well I got a good go at things today after a late start. I was planning on going down to visit Treblehunter but I fell asleep as we were making plans. When I woke up it was just to late for a long drive.

    So I went to a spot I've been eyeballing for some time. It is a hike in colonial spot. Got to digging and I'll let the pics tell most of the story...but man did I get thorned-up and torn to shreds with bramble! I was bleeding everywhere!

    The pewter spoon and dish were just fragments. This site seems rather large so I'm going to tuck this one away until the Carolina Boys visit.

    Good digs,

    Thanks man! The spill sounded all scattered and I thought I was digging slaw. The half cent was 3" down and sounded like a Lincoln cent. It just goes to show ya gotta dig things even if you think they're junk
