    Colonial Coppers, Tombac buttons and colonial relics

    Found 5 more colonial coppers in the field that has previously given up a 2 reale cob and 6 coppers. The one on the far left appears to be a William I(ca. 1695-1701). The other 4 coppers unfortunately have no detail remaining. Also found 4 buttons including a nice silver colored Tombac and assorted relics.

    Thanks for looking

    Nice coppers. Sounds like a great spot you got there. Thats alot of oldies from one field. Congratulations. The fourth large copper over (near the smaller one) looks like it may have a little detail left. I think I see a partial bust on it.

    Thanks evolution. I'll have to look at it a little closer. Also the first copper is actually a William III not William I.
