  1. One Hole, Two Coins - 19th Century Pocket Spill

    Today I was hunting on the farm, and got my first 19th century pocket spill. The signal, initially, was strong in the one cent range (mid 40's on the Legend). I had been digging modern cents earlier and figured this would be another. I was quite excited to see a nice 1837 large cent after...

  3. Field Of Dreams! 1 trash, all treasure, Large, half and cut cents

    Good Morning! its me again! I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming after last nights quick 1.5 hour hunt. 2023 was a slow year of detecting. when I say slow, I mean with finds. my buddy and I would go out almost every weekend and detect. but the end of 2023 has been very generous...
  4. First Tombac Button and Nice 1849 Large Cent

    Went back to the old farm cent and found large cent number 6 for this site. I found it a few feet from where I found the others. I hit it with the shovel but luckily didn't damage it. It was sitting almost completely vertical about 6" down on the side of the hole I dug. I had gone over it a...

  7. Found Oldest Coin yet (1852) at a New Site

    I found new site at the park the other day where a home site was located from an 1859 map. I had tried to locate the site couple times before but with no luck. I finally found it. I found an 1860 IH with a square nail hole through it along with an old pin and small gold plated ring a couple...
  8. Large cent!

    Just out for a quick grocery run and the tray wasn't dry this time. Didn't check em out until I got in the car, I gasped once I saw the date and remaining details. I cant tell if a find like this is unusual or just extraordinary:o. Thanks for looks, HH!:icon_thumright:
  9. First ever U.S. Large Cent! but in tough shape...

    REVERSE OBVERSE I found this today, and I’m showing the reverse side first, because that’s where I can see the “RICA” at about 4:00-5:00 and hints at the wreath. The obverse has nothing to show. It’s been holed, And there’s rust coming through. The corrosion is topical and rusty, so I wonder...
  10. 3 hunts and some CRH...

    My first hunt of the weekend was about 3 1/2 hours at a new permission at a house dating back to sometime between 1801 and 1819, it was a huge brick house that has apparently been hunted a bunch but I decided to give it a go. I found a spill of 3 wheats right off the bat and then a few other...
  11. 1857 Flying Eagle and LC within first 15 minutes of digging!

    I can't tell you how great I feel right now. The house I was detecting (same one I've been posting about recently) is from the 1870s and in the previous two hunts I got a gold earring, silver quarter, old cash coin, 20s coin spill among other things so it's been quite productive. At the...

  13. 1795 Capped Liberty! - My first Large Cent! - And Its A Good One!

    Whoooooo! I cannot believe what I found yesterday! I was metal detecting on a large wooded hillside in Pennsylvania looking for antique shotgun shells. My metal detector sounded a blip that said there was iron under a log. I know from experience that logs have a tendency to mask good...

    Hey T"netters- any ideas as to age? 1809 half cent (not toasted for sure!) plus a large cent (no pic, Mick dug), Pottery is especially interesting to me. And this must be a privy, correct?? 2nd pic has the 5 ft probe buried to the hilt (cleared the leaves around the depressed approx 3-4 ft...
  16. Mid 1600s Saddle Pommel from a 1990s permission

    Got out Yesterday to a permission of a house that was built in the 90s but built on an old farm field. Turned up my first Large Cent of the year and first ever with the ORX a few buttons and my oldest find to date a mid 1600s - mid 1700s Saddle Pommel. I didn't find many examples on Google so I...
  17. 1853 Large Cent - A first

    I found this 1853 Large Cent recently in a town near-by. I asked a guy to detect his yard, and he seemed hesitant, but he eventually agree to give me an hour to hunt his yard, so I made the most of it. I found a 1910 wheat penny which I laid on his porch railing before I left. Near a side...

    Been learning my machine. I found where there are pop tops a plenty than these! 14 Indian heads and two large cents! And I think a shilling?
  19. What really happened to the 1815 large cent?

    So what actually happened to the 1815 large Cent penny? I have heard speculations that since the US was at war with Britain, (who was their main material supplier for coins) they could not get any shipments of copper to the US. Now I'm no historian, but there were other countries where the US...
