Got a permission close to home in some old woods. Turned out nice with some old coppers and a bucket lister. A old flintlock hammer with the stone still attached. Guess a electrolysis project is in order! πŸ˜πŸ‘

Congrats on the hammer with the flint still attached.
The soils were not kind to the finds, best of luck on the IDs of the coppers.
Maybe a little soaking will bring up the detail a tad.

I'll be honest, if I had dug it up, it may have ended up on the "What is it" thread, if I posted it at all. Good thing you know what you are digging up. Congrats!

Well wait till you see a picture of the large 1824 Nova Scotia one penny. It could be my best condition yet. 😁
