Back at the local spot in the park woods that I found a few weeks back. Got a nice 21 signal on the bank of the stream and out popped my first Half Cent, 1809! Took 7 years to find one and have been on a couple hunts when other guys had found one, so pretty stoked, not a looker but has a readable date.
Also found a Nipple Button, i think these are usually earlier in the 1700’s than tombacs, not 100% sure. Also another beat pewter button (no USA) and a small 3 piece with a bit of a pattern, rare to find a 2 piece here. No military buttons here which is very unusual.
In addition to the Half Cent another CT state copper popped out.
Still finding keeper targets at a rate of 4-5 per hour, so I’m thinking the site could hit 100 buttons if I keep at it, we’ll see if the Spring growth stops me short.
It will be unhuntable in about 3 weeks.
Last pic is coins so far, not a lot, but fun when they pop!
