Amazing day detecting with my friend Kmatch7. We were able to hunt down an old farm homesite from the 1700-1800’s. The usual signs were obvious, brick, pottery, glass, etc, so we knew we were on it. We had about 4 hours of daylight remaining so we made every minute count. We found early 1700’s and early 1800’s coins and buttons. I’ll post pictures so you can see everything. Will be revisiting this spot soon.

Enjoy!

Also, huge Congrats to Kmatch7 for finding his first ever Spanish Reales (1802 Carlos IIII 1 Reales).

Amazing day detecting with my friend Kyle today. We were able to hunt down a old farm homesite from the 1800’s. The usual signs were obvious, brick, pottery, glass, etc, so we knew we were on it. We had about 4 hours of daylight remaining so we made every minute count. We found early 1700’s and early 1800’s coins and buttons. I’ll post pictures so you can see everything. Will be revisiting this spot soon.

Enjoy!

Also, huge Congrats to Kyle for finding his first ever Spanish Reales (1802 Carlos IIII 1 Reales).

Great bunch of finds! How do you know the cut piece is not from the Seville mint? The aqueduct mint mark for Segovia is not showing.
Actually, I haven’t had a chance to fully research that cut piece of Spanish. If you have knowledge about it please do share. Thanks!

That's one heck of a haul...I thoroughly agree with ARC milk this site to death.
Plenty more keepers to be found there.
I have been to this site approximately 6 times recently. Each time I’ve gone I have left with old coins and buttons. All recent finds have been posted on TN.

Finding just one coin is a rush. I can only imagine the thrill of an afternoon like yours.
Bravo.
