    Great find! Congratulations!
  2. Couple of flat buttons today. (Colonial?)

    The dime is just there for size reference. The larger flat copper button has the eyelet broken off on the back, but as you can see the smaller button is intact. Thanks for viewing!
  3. 1808 Draped Bust 1/2 Cent dug today.

    Here is the best shot I could get of the back. There is detail, but difficult to read because of the mineral buildup.
  4. 1808 Draped Bust 1/2 Cent dug today.

    Not sure of the value or grading of this coin, but its my first 1/2 cent ever and I found it with my Garrett AT Pro.
  5. My first 1/2 cent!

    Hey Pete! I finally went over late today to test my inexperience with the Garrett AT Pro. One wheat cent and this 1808 half cent. The 1/2 cent is showing it age, but I think it's in pretty good shape considering it's 204 years old. The property owner was up at the VA cemetery today so I...
  6. My first 1/2 cent!

    Finally got time to hunt a property that I've wanted to hunt for a long time. Got permission months ago and today was the day. My first coin was a wheat cent and my second an 1808 1/2 cent! I've never even seen on before until today. Had to Google it for correct ID. Thank you Garrett AT...
  7. My first and only request on map dowsing!

    Many thanks for the scan Red_desert. Actually, the red x on the left lower was an old sand pit converted to a ball field. The red x lower just right of center is where a post office used to be. There are no marking on the cemetery which is next to the house on the left lower with tree shadows...
  8. My first and only request on map dowsing!

    Fairly new here on the forum and I discovered a message concerning map dowsing and found it fascinating. I have an area close to where I grew up that dates back into the early 1700's. In the lower left of this photo is a cemetery that dates to the late 1600's where there was also a Quaker...
