    You nailed it VT! Started to lightly pick away at it and was surprised at how quick the details came out. Something about that soil saved all three of these coppers. Maybe I can get at the date, stay tuned...

    Hopefully it's one from 1699 and you can become a member of the 1600's club! We find good stuff out here, but 1600's is tough, even for us!

    Fantastic finds to say the least .You certainly unearthed a very nice early SLQ ,Those early issues with date readable are my favorites. In over fifty years detecting I have dug only 3 of the early SLQ with the dates showing.Afrer 1924 I have very many.When silver was real high in 1979 I sold many many no date showing SLQ 's for the money which I regret now.

    Hey Cheffer, congrats on a bunch of AWESOME coins and relics. The coins are over the top and I LUV that lock!! We’re creatures of habit, and we absolutely detest roaming outside our comfort zone.. so kudos for branching out and locating new honey holes. Thx for sharing, Ddf.

    From where I sit, here in the Midwest, there are no "wrong parts" of Mass. You guys have more history in the ground than about anywhere else in the country. I'm not the only one that's envious! Gary

    Excellent variety of finds there Steve. That is one heck of a nice batch of coins, and I like those padlocks.

    Amazing finds- Congrats! I'm a huge fan and collector of SLQ's- your 1920 is in great shape, and BTW, that looks like a Liberty Cap LC to me too...
