    I'm quite certain that you've recovered a belt plate fragment belonging to General Ursus from the original Planet of the Apes, you know, Charlton Heston and all that. He was a great military leader as far as gorillas go. Amazing find! Congrats!
    Excellent ID! I was however, unaware of action in the area we searched. Perhaps this will rewrite history! Lol.

    Cheers

    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS – AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover. If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US. If you’d like to check out some sample pages from the book, as well as scan the Table of Contents to get a better feel for what the book is about, you can click on the following link: http://colonialartifacts.com/2017/10/book-description/
    Thanks for looking ....

    What's the story behind the 1720 not being commonly dug here in the US? I looked and they seem quite common.

    1719 Dump would not be dug as it's a fairly rare coin in general. I just googled for 5 minutes and couldn't find a single example online.

    Pfft, as if digging coins from the first quarter of the 18th century isn't awesome! Very nice digs, and that little face is a really cool find

    Congrats on the nice finds Scrappy.

    Glad to see that you finally found a FE cent.

    Also nice to see the BOBs out in the woods together.

    There's certainly more of a story to tell. That KG where I found it seems like a random drop as you know. But nothing is ever quite "random". Thanks for the hunt bud

    Thanks Bill. The KG was a random drop it seems. We were a good 1/4 mile from the site. I'm thinking that one was luck. I will say a few of the other coins found on-site were KG1's and an early 18th Century French copper. Thx for looking bud

    Thanks Tom. I must say I was quite tired of everyone around me finding them. But a nice friend once gave me a shirt with a flying eagle coin image on it, and I happened to be wearing it that day. I give him all the credit. Lol

    Nice work! So was that your first FE? If so, there was a bit of that going around this weekend. Big congrats to you for notching it.

    Glad you made it out there with friends and had some cool history to show for it.
