    I've been hunting that park for 8 years - before everyone and their brother new about it. Recovered some great relics and coins over the years. People have been hunting that site since the 90's. I wish I was one of them. It had a lot of colonial activity.

Have met some wonderful people here in Wilmington Area to hunt with, and still meeting more. I feel like this piece has history written all over it. It has history on English Front from when they were first settleing in this area, History for the American front for the birth of a new nation, and history for the Indian Front. I found it between two settlements that were very early in NC history. It was for this website, that my friend sent me a link where a person here found one back a few years back. and then we could research from there. Because when it first come out i was thinking coin or button. I have left a message with the director of local state park Brunswick Town, and also setting up a meeting with director of Ft Fisher National park. I feel like this piece needs to be put in a museum so people can see and learn about this history. This piece is dated 1714 and the Indian wars were 1711-15, The Yamasee War 1715-1717 and Charles Towne was settled around 1663 and Brunswick Town settled in 1726 and started by the Col Maurice Moore, which is my 7th Great-uncle. So your imagination could run wild on this one. Who gave it to who, and who wore it, how did it get lost, did it break and fall off or was it broken, because of the peace breaks and wars. Just a lot of history around one piece.
    Congratulations on an awesome and rare piece of history. Hopefully this attention doesn't ruin the site for the future. I'd hate the county to ban detecting the there. I've always tried to be super low profile and detect by myself there. I see these groups of 5 or more people hitting it and worry it will ruin it for everyone.

    Congrats on the amazing find, erfranks, and it sounds like you've got a very good perspective on this find and on the hobby/adventure of detecting itself. As many have said this is banner-worthy but it's fair that rules are rules on that front - but don't take that too hard, because your find is what really matters.
    I'm really glad to hear that you're talking to local historical organizations and considering it's possible place in a museum. I personally believe that's the right move, but I acknowledge that some of our TNet members don't agree. Personally I'd love to have any one of my finds displayed in a museum.
    Good luck with that, and again - congratulations!

    Congratulations.
    Your piece still exhibits a deep strike, color, and condition. I love the sharp details on it.

    It is alot of detail, considering the age. i have see a lot of coins come out of the ground and have to try real hard and to try to get a date. Looking at the information i found on it. i posted link. that there were three Obverse and 6 reverse, and the think mine is the Obv III and Rev F. which the Obv I the King George was a lower relief, and Obv II a little higher and the Obv III had the most detal. and they still to this day know if was hammered or screw press. they are thinking screw press... other than environmental damage, it is an AU find. it is missing the loop at the 12:00 oclock position. Hey just adds to the history. Thank you
