  2. Colonial Farm Hunt - Circa 1760

    Hello, Gents, it has been awhile since I have posted. This is the first time out since May. I got out today to my colonial farm and it did not disappoint. I found an 1818 Coronet cent, 7 buttons (2 Dandy), and a nice ornate shoe buckle frame piece. Keep the passion high! Kirk
  3. Successful Relic Hunt with an UNK Copper

    Kyle and I got out to my farm and had a nice relic hunt yesterday. I dug the UNK copper that is most likely a Braided Hair large cent. What are the relics below the spoon handle? We will soon be hitting the shallows for relics. Loving this Garrett. Keep the passion high! Kirk
  4. Patriotic Jacksonian Button and Early Relics

    Kyle and I got out today to one of the farms I have permission for here in PA. We found a new site and did very well. We dug a total of 11 buttons and other early relics. I got the first relic out of the field and it turned out to be a Patriotic Jacksonian button. I had to do some research to ID...
  5. Field Keeps Producing - Copper and Buttons

    I got out again to my new farm and this field keeps producing. Before I started the dig, the neighbor drove his car down the lane and talked to me for about 15 minutes. He owns the hay field across the street from this farm, so I kindly asked him for permission. He gave the okay. It should hold...
  6. Bonanza Day with Coppers and Colonial Relics

    I got out today before work and had a great day with the AT Gold. Loving this machine. I got two Coronet cents, 6 buttons, 2 early knives, pewter spoon piece, and a Colonial saddle piece (tombac material). I also dug the brass piece in the heart of the iron. It looks Colonial. Does anyone know...
  7. Iron Butt Plate?

    This was dug today on a site that had colonial activity up until the CW. Any help I would appreciate. Age? It is around 6.5" long. Kirk
  8. New Field = Decent Results + Possible Early Iron Butt Plate

    I got out today with Kyle to a new field that I received permission for recently. I had a decent day for relics. The iron patch was decent but I'm surprised more was not found. I did get a nice brass Colonial drawer-pull, an Infantry CW cuff button, one early button, a thimble (I am afraid it is...
  9. Beautiful Holed Coronet Cent

    I got out today in the pouring rain. This is why I love the AT Gold. I can hunt anytime I want. I had only a two-hour hunt because I was soaked like a wet rat. I found 4 more buttons, musketball, and a beautiful 1822 Coronet cent. I think I may have found the trash pit. I was digging an iron...
  10. 18th Century Log Cabin Hunt

    I got out yesterday to my new farm where a log cabin used to stand. I found a nice fully-intact Crotal bell with the rattler still in it. It has a 1 on the side. Any age on it? It appears early. I also found 4 buttons with two being crude pewters. The AT Gold is killing it in the iron. I love...
  11. Colonial Farm Produces Relics and a Copper

    I got out this morning to my 1766 land patent farm that I received permission at over the weekend. I had a decent day in the field. I dug the 1853 Braided Hair large cent at 6" and it read 90 VDI. The Dandy button was a double-blipper and was on top of the ground. The holed artifact is a tombac...
  12. Colonial Hunters - Any Idea(s)?

    My brother found these relics on a farm that has a land patent of 1766. The relic to the left is definitely brass and looks Colonial. Any idea what these relics are? A KG II was found in the same area as both of them. Regards, Kirk
  13. 18th Century Jews Harp

    Hey, Tnet, I obtained permission for a new farm yesterday and Kyle and I hunted it today. He got a King George II, Colonial button, and an early brass relic that looks musket-related. We were scouting different fields on the farm when I got a semi-decent hit on the AT Gold. It double-blipped and...
  14. Complete 18th Century Cufflinks

    Hello, Gents, I decided to hunt my Colonial farm that I received permission at in March of this year. I found my find of the year today to boot. I was about 50 yards from where an early cabin stood when I got a perfect Nickel reading at a depth of 2". I was very surprised to see these flip out...
  15. Colonial Copper at New Field

    Hello, Gents, I got out today for a short hunt at a new field that had harvested corn. I found an 1862 IH which I gave to my son when I got home. The find of the day was the King George III copper. I will head back to this site next Fall since it should be in soy bean and I will be able to cover...
  16. CT Copper and Draped Bust - Plus another bucket of early crockery

    I had the morning free, so I decided to hunt the field I found an early site at on Tuesday. It was beautiful to swing in this weather. I got my mind set on gridding it slowly and digging iffy signals. It paid off today with two more coppers. They were both at 6". The one is a Draped Bust half...
  17. Copper and A Bucket of Colonial Crockery

    I had some time today to get out so I went to farm that I received permission at 2 weeks ago. I was exploring the field most of the day looking for new sites and almost went home without a thing. I eyeballed part of the field that I had not hit yet and decided to make my way there. Along the...
  18. 1808 Classic Head Large Cent - Passion Pumped

    Wow, it is great to be back. Hello, Gents, it has been a year since I have posted a thread or even swung a machine. Life changes have hit me and Kyle, but we both got out together today for a hunt. As well as my detecting hobby, I have also started to collect and sell old razors. It has become a...
  19. Foundation Stones Littered the Field

    When my uncle Zeus secured permission to hunt a farm, the farmer pointed to him where he would plow up old foundation stones. That had us all giddy for the hunt. We hunted on Sunday and it was to be a beautiful day. The farmer knew his land for sure. When out in the field, there were still many...
  20. Native American Artifact?

    I found this today in some shallow H20. Is it prehistoric? Thank you for the help. Kirk
