    Colonial large copper hoard

    So yesterday afternoon was by far the best day of digging ive ever had. As I was leaving another site and to get out of the rain I decided to drive some south jersey back roads. I noticed a difference in a patch of forest so I stopped and prospected. Sttaight out of gate I was in a high iron patch and dug a flat button. Then the 12 43s started. First was a 1794 liberty cap quickly followed by a 1800 draped bust one cent. I lost track of which ones came after that but a total of 8 large coppers and one 1 reale was unearthed. Also dug were 7 or 8 flat buttons, buckle, iron relic and earlier in the day an 1903 barber dime. I attached a few after electrolysis pics . Sorry some pics are sideways. The total was 4 1800 draped ,1 1797 draped, 1 1798 draped, 2 1794 liberty cap. 1 one reale, and other relics and buttons. What a day!

    Congrats on an awesome set of find, so many early LCs... almost makes you forget about the real! WOW.

    I like the fact that you used electrolysis on the 1794... the purists are cringing!

    Best of luck to you, and very well played sir!

    That's a mess of awesome coppers in really nice condition. Great patina on them out of the ground My record is 3 coppers in one hunt... I've gotten that a few times too, but cant seem to get over the 3 coppers mark! Just awesome! Is there a design on those cufflinks? I've dug many broken links, but I hear the complete ones are tough to come across. Silver, coppers and links... Nice work, looking forward to a return visit post.
