  1. Pewter Anchor + RP, 3 Coppers: 1807, 1832, 1888

    Patriot and I got back to last weeks site to see if there was anything left to scrounge up, and there was! We hit all over the place and regridded where the house would have sat multiple times, and Patriot kept picking up the pewters. He got me to check his signal on one and with my settings the...
  2. Hibernia Copper and Other Goodies

    As you can see from Patriots post, the site I mentioned last week turned out to be pretty good after all - but I seemed to be walking around the best targets and digging a lot of scrap. I did manage a handful of buttons, a 1781 Hibernia and a few other period finds. Can't wait to get out again!
  3. Crown Button, 1861 Cent, Lots of Relics

    We gave it a serious try on Sunday, trying out new spots and finding some sites in areas we just never would have expected. I scored my best finds on a flat ridge on top of a pretty significant hill - three big flat buttons, the 1861 ns cent and the crown button. The rest of the day I was...
  4. Pewter Anchor Button, 4 Coppers and the Usual Stuff

    Got out with Patriot and our other detecting buddy again yesterday and while we planned on spending an hour at the site it ended up keeping us busy for nearly the entire day. Patriot stole the show yet again, but I snuck a few decent finds in. This site just keeps on giving and it's a shame it's...
  5. Silver Quarter, Skeleton Keys, Coppers

    My hunting time has been limited this year from an injury and life just getting in the way, but we got back to the site Patriot scored some nice goodies at last week and it didn't disappoint, a lot more coins and other interesting finds were made. My best find came about 20 minutes into the hunt...
  6. Ornate Musket Escutcheon Plate, George III Copper, Silvers

    Well what started out as a three day hunt turned into about 1.5 days of hunting spread over 4 days for me - real life just got in the way! While the first day saw my best find right alongside all the trade axes popping up, it was a good effort put forth and I had a lot of good digs for the time...
  7. Colonial Digs - 3 KGII And A Bunch Of Musketballs

    While Patriot stole the show with the numbers, I had an enjoyable outing as well. Would have been skunked for coins if not for the three KG II coppers that came up back to back to back in about a 2 foot square! Also couldn't seem to find many buttons for the life of me, I was too busy digging...
  8. Sunday - Buttons, Coppers, Lead Heel Plate, Silver

    Sunday - Buttons, Coppers, Lead Heel Plate, Silver, 1812 Wreath? Got out with Patriot again Sunday and it was almost a repeat of the first hunt of the year - only with much better weather! We started off at one site that did well last fall and the targets were there, but not nearly as...
  9. Thursdays Hunt - Coppers and Buttons

    Got out with Patriot and our other digging buddy last Thursday for the first hunt of the year. Three coppers; 1876 Large Cent, 1820 Trade and Navigation, 1815 John Alexr. Barry Halifax token. Few flat buttons. Lots of other junk not shown. Domed flat button at the bottom left came a few feet...
  10. Another Day of Digging! - Bale Seals, 1825 Large cent, Silver etc

    I guess mother nature listened, because we're still digging, although with the forecast that might soon change! We did our usual of trying to get onto new sites and then hitting a few backups, and it worked once again. I was digging targets all day, including a pile of foil and junk. Managed...
  11. Quick Christmas Hunt Yields a George III and Another ? Button.

    In between doing the family thing this afternoon I managed 20 minutes of digging at a beat site that was plowed this spring. Targets were coming fast but then the rain started pouring, someone was gawking at me and the wife was sitting in the car so once I hit the coin I decided better to leave...
  12. Small Button Fragment

    While I doubt(but hope!) anyone can shed any light on this, I think it's a good example to keep everything. This was a small brass shard and nothing told me it was piece of a button until I tumbled it. Reminds me of a navy design possibly. Was a one piece flat button.
  13. Cut Large Copper

    This one has me a bit baffled, found this in 2012 in a trash pit that was giving up quite a few early buttons, everything from there seemed 1700 - 1830ish, but I thought this was junk until a couple weeks ago. Recently started tumbling some finds and have been throwing in what would otherwise be...
  14. Musketball Kind of Day, Buttplate, Silver Spoon, Broken Trade Axe

    Got out with Patriot and our other buddy again today, some snow on the ground but no frost at all which is pretty amazing for this time of year! Just great to be able to dig! We tried a couple promising new sites to start the day but finds were very sparse, with the exception being the musket...
  15. Commissariat Staff Corps Button, Coppers, Musketballs etc

    Got out today with Patriot and our other hunting buddy for what could only be described as a cold, windy and tough hunt. The ground was surprisingly soft in most areas, and we hit a section of promising woods first, only to find it incredibly thick. Our hunting buddy was rewarded with another...
  16. Navy Anchor Button, Silver Quarter, Bullets etc

    Got out today with patriot and our other detecting buddy for another go at it, and tried to finish off what we could from one of our newer sites. Finds were still popping up all over the place and I started off with the silver quarter just a few yards from where patriot scored his spanish silver...
  17. Yesterdays Hunt, Coppers, Acorn Button

    Got out for a hunt with Patriot and a couple other fellows yesterday and while Patriot stole the show there were lots of interesting finds! The only bad part was with the sun setting so early we couldn't hit a couple more prime looking fields we had permission for. My finds were a handful of...
  18. Two 1830s Silver Sixpence, Buttons, Ball and the usual stuff!

    Got out with the Patriot and another local detectorist today, and I'm glad I didn't stay home to work! We had a rough go of it at first, but found some backup sites and took our turns knocking on doors and trying spots until later in the afternoon we hit a spot I had bypassed many times thinking...
  19. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER 5 Minutes: 1700 Halfcrown! Plus Beach Silver

    The wife wanted to head out for a drive early this morning to look at the fall scenery, and the deal is I get a few minutes to detect while she listens to music. I noticed one of my beat sites was cut as I drove by, so I stopped to get a couple minutes in. Left the car, and made a beeline for...
  20. 1900 Silver Vicky Quarter

    Decided to hit a small wooded area I've been looking at for a while this morning, hoping there was some older stuff around. It was actually a pretty quiet area but found my first Vicky Quarter. I'm always wishing for older, but for a quick hour hunt so close to home I won't complain about any...
