    New site produces colonial coppers

    I was on my way to an old site when I passed a place that looked like it had everything going for it. I took a quick hike for a visual and it was detector worthy, so I spent 45 minutes and had excellent results.

    I weeded through a lot of iron, found a few flat buttons, and ended up with this. Turned it to be a 1749 KG2. (Pics are coming)

    Dug an axe head, then found this 12" away. I'm sure it's also a George, I'm just not sure which one yet.

    I had to leave 45 minutes after starting due to my schedule, but I'm happy to say the site has a lot of promise. I'll be back there today hopefully for another quick one. I'll post the flat buttons and other finds this afternoon, along with the (hopefully) cleaned coins

    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    I doubt they will be very impressive. They didn't come from a farm but they're both reasonably roached.

    I'm starting to think you know what you're doing

    You have a gift in following your gut and keeping your eyes open; it's a true talent to recognize or see what the pioneers were seeing a few hundred years ago and the potential the site has.

    Keep at it!!

    It's large copper country up here. I'm sure with your skill and detecting talent you would have a pile of you own coppers if you lived up North.
