    Ancient Coin at Ancient Cabin Site (Inspirational Post about John Walter Added)

    Yo, Tnet Forum zoysters, I got out today with "Bone Dry Detecting" to a Colonial cabin site that I had researched for a month or two or three.

    Well, to make a long metal detecting story short, I was swinging with Mr. Walter style sweeps, when I was startled with a "P" on "Penny" hit on my analog meter. I dug down, plopped some ancient soil down, and since my pinpointer's battery died, I had to call KirkPA over for some help. He handed me his pinpointer and while I acted like Mr. Walter, I got the "vibration" in the soil and plucked out a King George III coppa. I said to KirkPA, "It's a coin. It's a Colonial! It's a King George!" We proceeded to slap "high-fives" and then I yelled out, "Colonial!" The "Bone Dry Detecting" celebration soon started to proceed.

    To end the day, the zoyster ended up with 6 buttons, 2 musketballs, 1 KGIII coppa (my 3rd Colonial for the year), and 1 big metal detecting smile.

    I know Mr. Walter would be proud of my style.

    Those early PA settlers did too much and that is why coppas are found in abundance!

    The Three Datectateers will miles to find the Colonial "stuff"!

    KirkKyleChris (KKC) and to those long-forgotten, coppa-dropping settlers!

    Zoy, you are kicking some butt lately with that 90s style analog machine! It was awesome to see you recover that KGIII in front of my metal detecting eyes.

    Great job on the relics, too!

    Thanks, buddy, you gave us some good luck. My coppa was a thrill to find even though it was heavily corroded. Gotta love historic PA soil!

    Rob, NOW, you are due for some Colonials!

    Hey Zoy, How much detail does the other side of that coin have? You know us coppafiles like to see both sides of the coppas right?

    Thanks for the encouragement. Unfortunately, I wont be able to get out again until Thurs. or Fri. whichever is better weatherwise. I really envy you guys for having 3 nice sites to hit. (thanks to Zoy's research) I'm gonna hit the library and rack my brains this winter to see if I can get some fresh new spots for next year. The spot I'm at now might produce again next year if they plow it again. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for that. I'm still looking forward to Paco's post from last hunt and Vpones from this one. Did Paco hunt with you today?
