    Congrats on your epic find. Hard work and perseverance has paid off for you. As far as the video quality... who gives a rats ass. It's a live dig and look what you pulled out of the hole. Congrats to you Mister.

    That one came out beautiful, but I have to admit I was cringing at those one handed jabs with the digger. You have great experience and even better pinpointing skills. Wow, great coin!

    Your an animal I have a couple cellar holes near me, it's also along a waterway that is choked out with green briers and other bramble. I still need to ask the farmer if it's ok to go "scrappy" on it! I guess I'm the only one who thinks this is a banner find? Seems like French gold coins and Nova Constellatio coins are not good enough for Tnets banner? Oh well we know what banner is, congrats buddy, your a hard worker wish I had been there with you when you found it. I'm feeling like I was at this hole with you just recently?

    Haha, thx Bart. A long ways away from the seashore hunt we had 6 weeks ago! But instead of moving seaweed Iím moving cellar stones. Hopefully Iíll be able to repay you with a hunt up here someday.

    Awesome post Scrappy. You are something else. Two Novas in nice condition, from the same spot no less. I just donít know what to say to that.

    Congrats my friend.

    What a great looking copper to go along with your other one. I usually not able to watch videos and for some reason the signal strength was fine except for this weird beeping interference while you were talking true feelings of the find.
    I must add this beats a buckle frame fragment. Congrats on a truly a great reward for your efforts.

    Great find! I'm yet to find any coin from the 1700's let alone a Nova with 2 years of regular hunting. I'm still optimistic!

    Wow buddy! Sorry I had a crazy weekend at work and missed your call. Those look amazing and thatís quite a feat to put two of those beauties in your collection. If they were toast it would be an amazing accomplishment....to get them in that condition is just incredible. I would keep on clearing that spot my friend. Thatís how I found my eagle on cannon button. Just ask Bradley Harbin lol. Super psyched for you man. Hope thereís more killer coins hidden in that dirt. If moving a ton gets you that Iíd move a mountain
