No George II brothers this time, but Louis had a nicer brother (1732) who said hello!

Ironhorse stole the show with the honker silver at the end of day 2, but I got it going getting a nicer French silver 12 Sols to kick things off. I think it was just my 3rd target and about 18 inches deep.... but was in a trench running water made so the net depth was 3 inches. :laughing7:

Over the two days I dug a lot of buttons and ended up pretty unlucky there, but did get this early British Artillery. The lead seal is early French and a welcomed addition to my small collection of them.

French silver is one of the hardest things for us to find....doing it back to back is amazing!
All in all we got two good hunts at one site and says a lot too
That site is going to be a tough act to follow!

Congrats on the silver. The button is a nice example.
First time I've seen a duck on a seal.
