WOW, yesterday really had me praying in the dirt, here is what I gave thanks for: a silver washed concentric circle "bullseye"? lead filled ROSETTE, two flat buttons, one with silver color gilt and dimple on front, the other smaller like a cuff or sleave. The best find was a cut copper coin, I thought colonial at first, and then found it to be a cut and quartered LARGE CENT. I was a little surprised at a quartered LARGE CENT, so is that a quarter cent versus a half cent? I am still looking closer at it, and think it is a Matron Head (1816-1839), a few facial details are leaning this way versus a Braided Hair (1839-1857). Will break out a microscope this eve. Please chime in if anyone has some thoughts, expertise, or opinions. The other rusty iron picture is a cast iron pot leg. Thanks so much, what a great Sunday it was here in Rolesville, NC.
