1. Just dug the finest large cent I have ever seen come out of the ground! 1826 Matron Head Cent

    So today, after extensive rains thawed the frozen ground here in New England, I thought I would bust out the Legend for a little night time adventure. I went to the same spot on my property where I recently dug a 1788 Mass Copper, and within 15 minutes, about 15 feet from where I found the Mass...
  2. Dug my first 1788 Massachusettes One Cent coin!

    Well, winter is upon us here in New England. Yesterday was an unusually warm day for December, the ground unfrozen for a brief moment. I seized this opportunity to get perhaps my last day of detecting in this year. I am fortunate to live on what was an old farm in the early 1800s, so whenever I...
  3. Virgin cellar hole leads to 4 firsts and unknown coin. Draped bust, 2 tined fork, tombac, bale seal

    So i found this cellar hole while i was helping someone on here with this Need help interpreting LIDAR post. Karma actually working, hurray. I was showing what would definitely be a cellar hole. Using imagery of a known abandoned 1800's town site. When all of the sudden i noticed this other...
  4. Saving the lives of Loons

    Went to a local freshwater beach/boat launch/hangout on this dreary day up here in Maine. Never detected it before, it just kind of popped into my head this afternoon. I figured there wouldn't be as many people there when the sun wasn't shining. I was right, just a couple fisherman. This place...
  5. 1917 Merc w/Full Split Bands? & the nicest cellar holes I’ve seen

    Didn't have much time today after work. So i decided to just drive to a few cellar holes i have marked in Gaia as potential sites. Just to see how i would access them or who i would have to ask for permission. I drove down a road that's 10 minutes away from where i live, that i have apparently...

    1808 Spanish Piece of Eight

    This is a Spanish 8 Reale I found while mudlarking. It was minted in New Guatamala in 1808 and bears the bust of Charles IV.
  7. 1808 Spanish 8 Reales, 1943 Mercury Dime, etc.

    Found this Spanish pillar dollar today in the ocean. (Edit: I initially thought it to be too light to be genuine, weighing in at only 16.5 grams, but as many T-net users have pointed out, being exposed to salt water for 200+ years corrodes silver, and I can confirm the coin is much thinner than...

  10. 🥇 BANNER Rare 1880 Canadian Quarter.

    Any info on this quarter would be awesome. I just found it tonight just after dark. It was my first find with the Legend. I guess I'm looking if anyone can tell if it is wide or a narrow zero in the date. Also what's Up with The G. Last any thoughts on the grade. Looks rather nice to me.

    Hey everyone, I found this coin in Western Europe. It is made out of copper and measures about 23mm in diameter (0.9 inches). Only one bit of detail is visible on one side of the coin. Here's a close-up of the only bit of detail. It's a long shot but I know there's an ID somewhere out...
  14. Nickel with planchette stuck to it (?)

    Hello, I recently found this coin in a drawer not metal detenting. It is a 2007 Jefferson Nickel, with what appears to be a copper planchette (coin blank) attached to it. I ran it under the Equinox 600 and it chimed in at 12-13 vdi, which is Jefferson Nickel territory on the Minelab. I saw a...
