    Absolutely dream site ! I agree with your cache assessment - since the finds came out of such a small area. Great presentation of pics and the related write up ! Banner vote is on the way !!!

    This is the site that we colonial hunters dream of. I'm voting "BANNER" on this.

    Holy Smokes Paleo! That is indeed a hunt that us cellar hole hunters dream about ! Awesome coppers in great shape, a USA button, Spanish silver, ornate shoe buckles and buttons! The only thing missing is a flowing hair half disme . That Nova is almost as cool though. If this hunt isn't on the Banner soon, I am taking my toys and going home.

    We all know how hard it is to find a virgin site these days.......I am guessing there were no stone walls to give this site away? Yep, I would work that site for years to come. It will keep giving.
    Thank you! And you are correct on the walls; the hillside to the east is covered in a large grid of stone walls, but there's nothing directly around this site. It's a very cool spot in terms of topography, they built it on a rise above the roadbed, but it slopes very steeply down the other three sides to a large flat area along the creek. In the spring I'm sure that whole area flooded out so I don't think they planted on that ground, but it must have made the house feel like a castle surrounded by a moat every year!

    That's the spot most detectorists will spend their lives looking to find. Finding an early state-issued copper in well-preserved condition is a win-win. To find so many coins is win-win-winning. Most coppers, including well-preserved coppers usually bear one side with more deterioration than the opposite side; your coins are the rare exception, so indeed the soil was quite benign. Well-deserved banner vote submitted not only for these tremendous recoveries, but for all the effort with this exceptional post in providing all the right details, excellent photos, and detailed information on the coppers - date, variety, and so forth. .
    Thank you so much for your vote!

    The condition in these really is a minor miracle and I have to credit that with having a die variety for each of the state coppers! I have a pictorial database of the Connecticut copper varieties I put together, but unless 90% of the features can be seen on both sides it's hard to lock it down. Normally even a minor amount of ground action will wipe out the little stars and periods that are diagnostic. I'm happy if I can just get the date, but it really is awesome to have the Miller numbers for all of these!

    Stellar finds. Wish my home California had history like that I'd jump for joy with just one of those finds. I appreciate the time and detail put into presenting everything. A whole lot of awesome history there.

    Great site,

    Thanks for sharing.

    Some of the best sites I've come across were not on a map or there was very little sign of a home or no sign at all.

    Yeah I agree the iron is probably hiding some nice stuff.

    Trust me, we still have to research to find spots here on the east coast too. I can't even count how many sites I thought would be slam dunks and instead I came away with a bunch of modern trash and a few head stamps.
