Went out for my May 25th Anniversary Hunt (37 years of drug free living) :headbang:
Fields are but planted this year so I did an annual trip to an old church site in the bush that I have going to for 9 yrs now. Once a year I drive over there (25miles) and try to squeak out another recovery. I posted up some of the previous finds in the RDT thread the other day actually.

So I wondered around the site for 4 hrs-dug a share of bottle caps and deep nails.
Though Could of really left after the 2nd hour as the finds were slim after that.

First was the cloisonné type pin dug up on the bush trail going up beside the foundation of the church, good portion of it survived getting driven over for 100 yrs or more.

The next one was the 1920 LC from just 15 feet away on the side of the trail.

The 1928 silver dime 1940, 1927 pennies came from the back end of the 1+ acre site.

I decided to see the scrap yard fellow over in the hamlet to see if he had a truck part, got a chatting about life for an hour or so.
Nice guy, that has seen a lot of life, and showed me a few of his cars a 1957 2 door, also a 1961 rag top Parisienne.
I decided I had enough bush hunting so I drove over to a local community hall that I stopped at last year for the first time.

I decided to carve up 1953 silver Elizabeth dime a tad, hit her slipping off a good sized rock, that or she was sitting on the rock. :laughing7:
Was digging with the Lesche so the dig wide/deep option is less on the turf.

Next was a 1952 silver quarter which I don't get up here so it was a very welcomed sight.

Dug a quarter, and a couple of sm coppers.
It was dripping rain most of the time but it was ok.

Part of a well spent day P.J.!
Excellent coin lot! A great days hunt anytime /where.

The pin and it's tediously intricate construction is a heck of a piece.
It's tying to argue with me about an artist crossing a cross of Lorraine with a Fleur de lis.
There's another (1700's?) cross with two cross pieces too I think.
Or it could be none of the above. Making it all the more intriguing.
I even peeked at some tobacco plants profile pics. (Speak of prior addictions..)

Congrats on the Fantastic finds ! :hello2:

I was lucky enough to find a 1920 (last year minted) Canadian Large Cent like yours here in Ohio last year.
After researching the coin I was surprised to learn that Canada continued minting Large Cents 63 years after the US stopped producing them.

Good Hunting !
 

Holy smokes Pepper, you killed it out there. 👍 Beautiful old pin. Great job on the old coins. Canada has some nice designs. I would have loved to see that 61 Pontiac. I’m a Pontiac nut.
Congrats on the 37 years too. If this year doesn’t end on a better note I make go back on them. LOL 🤪🙏
Great post. I’m hoping to get out soon once I get my granddaughter back home to Ohio. 👍
