    Congratulations on achieving your 7th BANNER smokey!
    I very much enjoyed reading about your finds.

    The Deus is an amazing machine!

    Thanks Jeff of PA. The problem photos were from an I phone 8. I just got a new camera, the same one Worldtalker uses (we contacted each other and I went for it). Going to buy a squirrel feeder hopefully today.

    GeoW, hopefully next time I can get a better eagle picture. When I was a kid, they were no where to be found, now there is a nest on my residential street.

    Antiquarian, thank you. It is so exciting just getting this stuff out of the ground...and the lock, as stated before is absolutely a DOG LOCK which was earlier than the common use of the flintlock rifle.

    Smokeythecat, what a special post! It gives an example of what can be accomplished when a person gives some attention to what they are seeing and then expending the energy and time to give it all their attention. It shows what trying can do! What a great read, thank you for sharing!...........63bkpkr

    WOW...Sweet Jesus... and one more... Amazing!!! I get excited when I start finding flat buttons. I can only imagine your excitement in a small cache of hammered coins and other relics. Congratulations on yet another Banner Smokey. SD

    Thank you. It took four days to dig that little pit. First two, I was just "guessing". I had to fill it in both days. Day 3 I had permission to leave it open over night. Day 4 Tommybuckets came and helped. He's the one in the hole. The best items were found on day 2 and 3.

    Fantastic dig. Congratulations on another epic Banner.

    My apologies if it was discussed, as I didn't read through everything, but do you think this was a burn pit since I think I remember you saying there was charcoal(?) in the beginning?

    Holy smokes, Smokey! Congratulations! What an amazing discovery.

    It's always so strange when you find just one piece/shard of something. Because, if they were throwing out a broken cup or plate or bottle, which would be very sharp and a nightmare to step on, you'd think they'd do a better job at making sure every single piece made it into the hole. They must have had bad aim back then, haha. Those shards you found are such a tease!

    It was a small burn pit, but I'm 90% sure if we go in through either side, more of the pottery will be there.

    Yeah, if the owner will let you, maybe you should dig like, a 15' x 15' square or something, using this hole as the center point. There's gotta be more!

    We will take it slow. When we left, we made absolutely sure no one would even know it was there, and even decorated it with sticks and leaves to make sure! It was so tastefully decorated!
