    bullet cache(?) and spanish silver!

    My son and I had a choice to make the other night as to where we hunted. We decided to hit an old farmhouse that's up for sale next to a field in which the army of the Potomac camped. After about forty five minutes and only one shot bullet between us I felt that perhaps we had chosen the wrong field to hunt. I then dug what I first thought was a knockout from an electrical box but my sons thirteen year old eyes picked up a faint profile and the words "Carolus III" along the edge. We could barely make out the "17--" along the edge, but there was no doubt as to what it was. This is only my second spanish coin of that age and it still is exciting!
    We then decided to hunt a little longer when I got a nice long linear signal in a tangle of trees. I figured it was an old section of pipe or roofing or whatever, but I was wrong... I dug a little and turned up two three ringer bullets! The signal in the hole however was just as strong so I dug some more. Out popped three more bullets, this went on for about twenty minutes by which time we had lost count. Final tally was the thirty one three ringers shown. Went back today and searched thoroughly but did not find the box plate we suspected might be there. Even without a box plate I'll never forget the excitement we shared in digging these up.

    Great finds! I think that field deserves to be hunted several more times!

    Way to stay persistent... and have it pay off.

    I agree with Bookfisher... probably a lot more to be found there.

    Way to Go!!!

    Nice! I can't wait until my son is old enough to hunt with me... I have a few more years to wait.

    Wow,

    That is a nice day to remember. That is great you were able to share it with your boy. I have 3 sons. It puts a smile on my face when one of my boys is with me and I make a great find. I let them be the first to touch it.

    might be a ammo box spill -- if no box plate found -- thats a lot for one spot -- (look deeper ) --- Ivan
