  1. 1787 New Jersey Copper

    So I had a little play time before work and did some recon in a new area. I managed to pull out a Jersey. The problem with the pine barrens is that one side of the copper coins always seem to come out more damaged than the other .I think that it's from all the pine sap. I guess I'll just have to...
  2. 1830 Half Dime

    I had a little play time before work today so I decided to go back to a site that I went to the other day. It's deep in the Jersey Pine Barrens. On the way in I noticed multiple fresh BEAR tracks so I was on high alert. It was a little difficult to concentrate but I did manage to pull out a few...
  3. Lady of the Sea - Hope cufflink, 1819 large cent, more trinkets

    I had some play time in the pine barrens this week so I hit one old site and found another virgin site. The first old site gave up a nice shoe buckle, buttons and a watch winder. The new site may be an 18th Century Tar Kiln. It gave up an 1819 large cent, a ring, buttons and cuff links. To me...
  4. 1794 LIBERTY CAP HALF CENT lettered edge

    So I had some play time before work yesterday so I decided to visit another hunted out site with my Deus 2. I'm starting to get this detector dialed in so I seem to be finding a little more deeper trinkets. Yesterday I found some sleeve buttons, regular buttons, and this 1794 lettered edge...
  5. 1804 Half Cent, Mysterious lovers eye jewelry

    So I decided to spend a few hours deep in the new Jersey Pine Barrens. I went to an old site to see if the Deus 11 could find a little more with the right settings. It did! After a few buttons and an 1804 Half Cent, I found a brooch. It didn't make sense that the the middle of the brooch was...
  6. 1798 large cent reverse of 1797

    I had some play time today so i decided to go to one of my old, beaten up sites. I maxed out the settings on the Deus2. It's a little chatty that way but it works well. This coin must have landed on heads around two centuries ago!
  7. 1774 George, 1829 Large Cent

    I had a little play time this week so I went back into the Pine Barrens. I went to the site that I had found a Monroe Political button, a War or 1812 "I" button and a 1798/1800 Bust cent the week before. I really tweaked out the Deus 11 settings and used my heel-toe method in the heavy iron. I...

    The other day I found a new site in the Jersey Pine Barrens. I found a 1798/1800 large cent along with some buttons and other trinkets. i usually clean the buttons enough to see the the back marks. I keep an eye out for Washington, Jackson, and Monroe. As luck would have it, one button was a...

    I had a play day today so I decided the head into the New Jersey Pine Barrens to do some recon. I checked some remote areas that I had been to a few years ago.

  11. 1822 Large Cent

    I had some play time today so I decided to cut a trail on a new site. I was a little surprised to see an 1822 coin because most of the items there are 18th century. Yesterday I found a really interesting pewter spoon handle there.. I'd love to know what the symbol means. Any clues?

  16. 1828 Large Cent

    Yesterday, I had a little down time at work so I did a little recon in a new area in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. I found what appears to be a small work area.

  17. Stagecoach Stop?

    The other day (while on downtime at work. I love my job!!) I did a little recon on an old sand trail in the New Jersey Pine Barrens. On an old map it shows a stage road.
