Went out on my days off to 3 sites. 1st day,2 different sites. I got a nice dropped musketball and a couple of buttons. I figured it was a successful day at that point so I stopped at my cellar I've been going to since 2015. I wasn't going to be upset if I didn't find anything. I found a fugio there so I just keep going back even though I get blanked a lot. The last 3 times,I've found stuff there though. I spent a hour and didn't find anything so I was on my way out and still swinging and got the faintest solid high tone. This part is right near a area where people have thrown trash through the years so I thought it might be a can .However,the XY screen was showing straight. I dug down over a foot and pulled out a beautiful colonial shoe buckle.1720-90. That's why I keep going back 😁 Today I decided to hit the spot that I found the Canadian bank token. The first half hour was slow but as the it started to get hot and the skeeters came out, I started hitting stuff. My first target was a coin which was a nice surprise since I've never found one here. Other highlights were 2 knives with handles,a whale oil part with some wick and a cool suspender or clasp. I've never seen anything like this, maybe someone knows. You can read the writing from the front but you can see it in back. When I got home and cleaned the coin, it was a 1869 Indian,a key date!!! I don't want this season to end.

Ox shoe too! Great that the buckle is intact. Often, the chape and frame separate because the iron pin rusts out.

Thanks! It's been pretty nice up here so I'm hoping it lasts. Up in NH, you can be snowed in real quick!
