Researched a new site and found a nice haul. Clipped ca 1730 one reale Cob, 1699 King William III halfpenny, clipped King George halfpenny and what appears to be a cut maravedi.
Prior to those 3 coins I was digging farmer dropped wheat pennies, a buffalo nickel and the 1928 standing liberty quarter. Finding this new money is a tough pill to swallow when you know you're on a very old site...in fact I was beginning to get aggravated after the 6th new coin.
Man GWD, your new site is off the charts. You are in a very old area that will produce some killer finds(not that it hasn't all ready). Your copper cone is most likely a Native American Tinkler Tinkle Cones | The Materials of History, Thought, and Art which in it's self is an outstanding find. I can't wait to see what you pull out of there next.Can someone tell me what this copper item is? I found it on the site. Have found several of these - all on early sites. Thanks
