  • AMAZING .... Intact 1680s bottle pulled from early trash pit!!

    On Saturday my buddies Stan and KMac invited me to make a return trip to our favorite early colonial pit without our friend Dan who unfortunately had scheduling issues.

  • Incredible early 1600s sword basket hilt recovered + 1580s jetton and more!!

As I was driving down the lane approaching the house a beautiful bald eagle flew directly in...
