    Anyway, I'm fortunate to have met a few of the "old timers" over my years. I can't even imagine the piles of silver and coppers that must have come out of old town commons, school yards and the like. I've certainly heard stories of people finding things that if found today would be national news. I'm thrilled when I find anything colonial, but I have to work hard to locate good spots that haven't been hunted heavily.
    A old timer I met told me a story that almost made me cry. Him and 2 buddies hit a school by me in west springfield after a rain storm with some of the first machines around. Him and his 2 buddies his over $70 face value in silver coins. I can't even imagine?? Crazy. Would love to have been there in the beginning. But even they didn't get it all. We're still fortunate. I can't believe the coins I've just seen today on the forum that you guys have found. Bottom line, that next hole can still change your life. As it did for you today. Very lucky club to be in. I've been hitting the woods hard trying to get me something that old. I don't expect to ever find one of those though. But it's nice to dream. Cheers brother.

    Great outlook Oxbow, but theres no question. I think some people think because we live in NE these things jump out of the soil?? Idk?? But it will be a Banner, if it isn't already by the time I post this. No question.

    Well, anyone who know anything about colonial coinage knows this is a banner find. I don't know the reason why this hasn't gone banner, but seeing coins like yours not make banner whereas much more inferior coins make it burns my ***

    Very late to the party here- but for what it's worth, I gave my banner vote. Any tree coin needs to be up top... easy for me to say.

    Problem is another tree coin blew right by ox's. I believe the rules state two similar finds, one will likely not make it up top.
