    Congrats on the amazing finds you made!!! Unbelivable!!! Regarding your misteries I would say that the ball thing is the decoration for the hinge pin. Key hole cover is there too. The buckle on the left side ( fragment) is the spur trefoil trapezoidal buckle (17 -18 th century).

    Fantastic hunt! I absolutely love that Vermont copper and of course the 8R! Hope you get to dig there more and show us the goodies.

    Incredible! 1788 8 Reales and 1786 Vermont Landscape Copper!!!

    Wow man, that’s a hunt you’ll always remember. I don’t know about everyone else but I’m as excited about that landscape Vermont as I am the 8-R. As far as I’m remember, I see wayyy less of them then the 8’s. Just saying...

    Amazing hunt and banner all the way. Congrats!

He's super cool and it's the history that he's the most interested in, but I'm definitely going to be putting something together to give him as a huge thank you for the hunt. And he's already invited me back for as many digs as I want to do too!

    Lots of crazy finds lately, and yours is certainly no exception. May be noted in the thread, but the unknown brass piece is an 18th century furniture pull

    Congrats on the banner. Very well deserved. Been hunting a while and the Vermont landscape copper is still my favorite all time coin find. Gotta love that monster 8 reales though. That's a thing of beauty.
