    3,320 Days since I dug one of these ... but who's counting!

    Ironhorse and I went back to the site I dug the 1679 Charles II Twopence, and based on there being three very old coins we both thought the same thing... why couldn't there be a cob there! Even though the subject came up, and it did seem like it would be possible, I don't think either of us thought it was really going to happen... especially since the site went from feast on day one and closer to famine today. But if you dig all the sounds that have a chance sometimes it works out!

    Thats a long time but those early sites can be few and far between and those later colonial sites rarely produce a cob. WTG

    "I have fought against the people of the North because I believed they were seeking to wrest from the South its dearest rights. But I have never cherished toward them bitter or vindictive feelings, and I have never seen the day when I did not pray for them." General Robert E. Lee

    "My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me, that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave." General Stonewall Jackson

    My 2nd choice for a subject line was... Another Holdie! But it has been so long since I had dug a cob it was starting to seem like it wouldn't happen, so I went with how long it has been.
