    My best hunt so far, Newfoundand style

    A re-do on my attachments..
    sorry about the flub


    I ask a few questions here and there and came up with a very nice grassy area to hunt. Started out very slow just a couple junk hits and a couple recent Canadian pennies. I moved Maybe 100 yards or so one way and picked up my first good Target which was I'm thinking one of these Canadian Silver's. Wasn't long in that same area I pulled that old toasted coin, just pocketing it since I couldn't read anything on it at all. You might can make something out on this coin. There is a faint likeness on there. So kept swinging a little tighter and slower and found these other nice coins in that same little area. I'm telling you this was fantastic for me, I've actually postponed our next RV leg for one day to be able to
    Hunt this area one more time. If anyone can shed any light on The Toasted coin please feel free to pass on the comments. This particular area goes back to the 1600s. Maybe not this particular area that I'm hunting but in general the whole area as a total.
    Take note that the two pennies were back in the day when this was just Newfoundland, thinking that in 1949 it was voted to become part of Canada.
    Forgot to mention the two Barber dimes was a plus !

    Thanks for your patience !!

    Is killing a known terrorist wrong? I ask this, did the terrorist allow any of his victims quarter? No, then allow him no quarter, and hoist the black flag.

    Did a re-do on my attachments, sorry for the inconvenience. I'm just getting one half a gigabyte of high-speed here in Northeast Newfoundland. Supposing that was my problem.

    Coin looks late 1700s French... leaning towards it being a jeton.

    Thanks !!
    I had a fairly good morning back in the same area, not as good as this last hunt but still a pretty good hunt. I will have to get my finds rounded up and sort through them and get back and post again.

    Thanks again !!
