    Unbelievable coin day with 36 coppers!

    Hello everyone,

    It's been quite some time since I've last posted. Up until a few days ago site after site has led to nothing but disappointment. However a buddy of mine got permission to detect a piece of property owned by his friend and invited me along and boy am I glad he did!

    On my way him he called me and was practically squealing with excitement. He had gotten to the site ahead of me and already found several coppers. Upon my arrival I met up with him around a rocky ledge on a hillside which was absolutely loaded with coppers!

    Between the two of us on the first day we found over 70! The coppers were around the rocks and in between the rocks deep inside the cracks. We have been trying to come up with the theory as to how this may have happened and we think possibly there was once a cave of sorts that collapsed on a cache that pushed all the coppers out.

    We have found several varieties. I found 36 coppers which blows my record of ten coppers in one day out of the water! I got several George II (one cast counterfeit?) George the Thirds, an Irish half penny, a machin Mills I believe, a strange George the first( counterfeit?), 2 William the Third(I think) a Connecticut copper, 3 Vermont coppers, 3 New Jersey coppers , and three fugios which I have never found before, and a Massachusetts copper!

    We have been back twice and I have more to post including another first for me which I will follow up with in the next couple days. In the meantime we will continue to excavate the site with the hopes of possibly hitting the motherload if we haven't already!

    Thanks for looking and happy Hunting everyone!

    Unreal, you found in one hunt what most would be happy with finding over a lifetime of detecting. The details on some of the coins is outstanding, WOW. If you don’t mind saying, what state did you find these in. Definitely a banner post. Good luck with your hunts. Walt

    Amazing. Congrats! That hunt is banner. Were all coins found in a small area? If yes, have you considered using a sieve for non-metallic artifacts?

    The finds themselves are great and I love how the NJ copper was modified into a tool (scraper?).

    Coinsniffa, what can be said other than AMAZING !!!! I well remember your 10 copper day a few years back. Wish I was there for your 36 copper day also. You got some great coppers too! Congrats on a fantastic hunt and hopefully you can get some of those boulders out of they way and find some more. If this isn't a Banner, nothing is.
