Thread: Revolutionary war, early NY National guard, some copper and silver.

« Prev Thread | Next Thread »
  1. #1

    Revolutionary war, early NY National guard, some copper and silver.

    With a few fields still available I managed to get out on 3 different occasions. Nothing spectacular, but I believe the results are still very decent for the late season.

    My most interesting finds were military buttons from 2 different periods and armies.

    Revolutionary War 29th Regiment of foot. Not in the best condition, but not bad for a 240 years old pewter.

    An other interesting button was this New York National Guard from 1840's.

    A half penny of the same type. Much more common.

    A scarcer half penny was this Banque du Peuple type. The bankers who put this coin in circulation went to jail in 1839 as they have financed the Patriots Rebellion of 1837-1839 with the money collected from the coin emission. (Patriots Rebellion was a failed attempt to challenge the British Government and was organised by the French Canadians. The help they were expecting from the US never came so it was doomed to fail).

    My most beautiful crotal bell since I started detecting. Strangely the decorated types with the makers mark tend to elude me.
    Was waiting for me under the leafs.

    That's a heck of a variety! And good close to Spring if that is the case. I think I'll take another shot at it for a few hours tomorrow.
