ID:	1775558Found this Canadian One Cent piece in the woods near my home. This would have been a nice looking specimen without the 22 caliber hole in it!

    I also happened upon a whole boatload of earthenware crock pieces near a stone wall, many of which fit together. Of particular interest are the 3 fragments that join together to spell MABBETT & ANTHONE PO’KEEPSIE NY.

    Lots of broken glass and china and 2 intact bottles.Click image for larger version.

    There was also a nice oil lamp wick assembly labelled VENU F.M. & Co. The wick turner still operates nicely.

    Thanks for looking!

    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    Thank you RVRoamer66! This is the 3rd coin with bullet hole damage that I've found locally. The first 2 were silver GW Quarters. I often wonder if the people that do this ever expect to recover their targets...

    Thanks, Professor! This was a new site for me and a bit of a scouting mission.

    Thanks, Tommy! Most of these targets were near a stone wall at the bottom of a gentle slope. Some rich dark soil there.

    Thank you, washingtonian! I hope to return and collect more bottles and crock shards. Maybe I'll be able to reconstruct a crock or 2?

    The 2 intact bottles were actually under some rocks at the base of the stone wall.
