Spectacular finds! I wish I had a cane field up here to hunt. That seated half would be a dream come true. Keep up the good work Bandit! Gary

seated halves are never ever expected in this hobby. I’ve dug just a few of them over the years, but each one was cause for a happy dance! Dug my first, an 1853 with rays, back in 1993 in a logging camp in Virginia. Since then I dug one in Kentucky and three down here in Louisiana. Now I’m after that unicorn of coins—the gold one!

Well done! I particularly like that gold nugget. I found one once in Panama at an old Gold Rush camp.

Wow!! Would LOVE to see a photo of the one you dug. There were a lot of great finds this year but my nugget is my favorite—because of how far it had to travel to get here!

Nice to see there was something good to come out of 2020. You are very fortunate to have that history there and the health & means to go after it, congrats to you all on an awesome year of recoveries.

thank you my friend, so far so good on the health. I’ve always said you can be smart in this hobby, or lucky, or just plain old persistent. Many times it’s the persistence that’s paid, and I know that one day I won’t have the health to be so persistent. Until then I’ll keep at it as best I can.

wishing you well in 2021

A fantastic bunch of finds - congrats !

A lot of people don't realize how much work it is to clean and organize that many coins, relics and then set them up for photo's - looks great - well done !

haha that’s part of the reason it takes me so long to get the year end post done. I always dig with a frenzy until the very last day of Dec each year that I can go, trying to squeeze a few more relics and coins out of the ground to add to the totals. then it takes weeks to get it all cleaned, ID’ed, de-rusted, and displayed for photography.

Thanks for this post BuckleBoy. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of your finds. I seems that you and your crew had a pretty epic 2020 season. I hope 2021 is as good or better. Cheers!

thank you my friend! I hope it’s a good year too. Already off to an ok start for relics, but got some catching up to on the silver coins. Maybe this year will be the year for a gold coin... got some things on my bucket list I’d like to find down here.

Nice! You guys had a killer year! Were you ever able to get a date off the William IV farthing or no? I got another one (a half) last year... 1831. Still looking for that Spanish though...

we couldn’t see the date but it’s a very narrow date range for those. Soggy soil down here really screws up coppers down here.
