Hello, Gents, it has been awhile since I have posted. This is the first time out since May. I got out today to my colonial farm and it did not disappoint. I found an 1818 Coronet cent, 7 buttons (2 Dandy), and a nice ornate shoe buckle frame piece.

Keep the passion high!

Kirk

I can't tell from your pic what had been planted in the field, but it sure looks like a nice sized one. I have yet to find a Dandy...my best one is a mid 1700's sized button that is plain, but even the late 1700's/early 1800's buttons I find always renew my energy to dig when they show up. I hope your season is on track now and we see more very nice finds like those soon.

Thanks, Gentlemen. This farm is 299 acres. I still have a lot of ground to hit.
