Hello All,

We kept working the new site, which has very little pottery, but all the right age for late 1700s and very early 1800s. Seems we have stumbled on a petite habitants homestead and outbuilding group. The button patch we got into today had a lot of silver gilded buttons, which I love finding since they are almost without a doubt late 1700s. Nothing with a maker's mark on the back, so again that speaks to age. Lead bits, a musket butt plate, a "mickey mouse" style small padlock, and lead fishing sinkers made out of musketballs. Got one tombac button, which we don't see very often. The only ones of these we had previously dug were on our tavern and at another small farm site we dug this past year (where we dug only buttons and no coins). I also dug a pistol bullet that I am fairly certain is some sort of Colt variant. If someone could confirm, I'd appreciate it.

I managed to get Spanish #19 for the year, which puts us one step away from our goal of 20. I think we have a chance at digging 25 this year if the harvest and plowing cycle is good to us.

I did NOT post a photo of the wardrobe malfunction. For that you'll have to check the video. Goodness, seems like this is happening very frequently. Second set of ripped pants this year! :BangHead: Must be the UV, temps, mud, and frequent washes down here.

At any rate, here are the photos and video. The half real is in great shape and was laying right on top where it washed out from the rain. 1773 half real.

Da-yam...you have a lot of Spanish!

38 Spanish in a year and a half. Not sure about the Seated coin count, but it is probably close to that. We target Colonial and Federal sites almost exclusively. Some of the sites have had mixed eras of occupation, but all antebellum.

Man, you are racking up on the spanish down there. I think you've under estimated your total for the year. 8-)

What kind of repellant are you using? I have never had a skeeter bite thru a glove. Deet has always worked for me, (Works on chiggers too). Maybe rub down with diesel fuel. :icon_pale:

When I saw the part about the ripped pants in the title I was thinking about all that rich cajun food you've been eating these last few years. :laughing7: Glad you cleared that up in the video.

Keep posting my friend. I'm having a blast watching your posts.

Randy

PS - Don't forget to give us an update on that Planters Bank counter stamp.

Really nice finds. Omg I'm just chomping at the bit for this knee to get better so I can get out there. The weather had been nice and cool and I'm stuck in the couch. I want to see what Kentucky has to offer me before winter comes.
