    And no, these are small relics, I'll never move.
    Hmmm...I have wondered about those pencils, since you feel that they are pretty good, perhaps I should have them on hand and give them a try.

    Sprailroad, I had an encrusted early US half cent. I sent it to a professional grader to be restored/conserved. They took my money, called it a loss and sent it back untouched, not surprised, but disappointed. I figured I might as well give it a shot, used the pencils and got the type (draped bust and 180- off it. I like them. I never thought mechanical cleaning would be the way to go.

    Sometimes, I just love going to a place I know is old and still looks pretty much like it did way back when. Its why I go walking around "my" mansion from time to time.....still!

    When I'm there and I stop to look around, it's transforming and transfixing!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Just got back a bit ago...

    I did some squinting real hard...

    Gonna be a tough I.D.

    Will poke around on it later.

    Perhaps some more cleaning with some water... perhaps even "wet" pics will define some detail(s) to get a better lead on this.

    Hard read / makeout on this so far.

    Blk hole, the physical mileage is racking up pretty fast. The other guys got almost as much. The one with the White's V3I did very well with the 4 lb. cannon ball and the bud with the Minelab sovereign held his own also. It wasn't just me. You'll notice most all of the targets were very small. Very small. And deep. Soil was mild reading a 60 on the Deus. Lots of sandy and oyster shells were in it. The digs were quick and clean. No roots or big rocks to contend with.

    Yawn?? Actually, a lot of places in my area no one knows about, or people think they have been hammered in the past. In the 40 years I've lived up here I have only seen one person EVER out with a detector. So when we find a spot with old stuff, it s yee hah! time.

    Metal detecting is 99 percent location and 1 percent luck.

    Every piece of colonial history is COOL in frags or complete. Thanks for sharing some more cool old relic treasures Smokey. Always love that you tag team with other T-netters as well. Such a joy to share in the hunt.

    Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
