    Really great finds. Maybe we'll have a mild winter.

    But seriously, I would. They’re so unique and made by a guy who just wanted a few pints at the tavern. Killer finds Anton!
    Thanks Steve.
    Yes, legend says that he was making them in the same general area I'm hunting at but as I have mentioned , even here they appear to be much rarer than the usual counterfeit George halfpennies. Really happy to find one before the years end.
    I wouldn't mind finding one of those stunning early US cents you're finding, so I think every location has it's own advantages. Congrats again, just a stunning find.

    Thank you. Always cool to pull those old silvers. Although it's pretty new for the site I dug it at.

    Well
    I hope you find a Nova and I a Blacksmith token! Iíve heard of some filtering down into NY State so maybe I have a chance. As for the Novas, apparently they were banned from use in 1787 and sold off at discount. After that they scattered everywhere, perhaps to Anton-land! Lol

    Lol. One can only dream finding a liquidation type bucket of them.

    All good stuff. Even though that Blacksmith is listed as one of the common ones it will never process through my brain that way because of how much I would like to find a bust type one.

    Thanks Tony. I hope for a few more hunts before the freeze. But it doesn't look promising weather wise. Enjoy the sunshine, you won't see much of it coming back to Canada.
