Wanted to get one last hunt in before the ground freezes, 38 degrees is my limit. This field usually produces
since it`s between 2 old farms, never found any military items there though. Was hoping for some colonial items
since i have found a shoe buckle there last spring. over all it was a decent day.

You did real good in 3 hours! Thats a great variety of finds. I'm sure that field is still holding onto a lot of goodies. Unless the ground is too frozen to dig, I'll be out there regardless of the temp.

Yeah, I found most of it down by the tree line in the pic, just on the other side of those trees is
a large farm foundation, behind me on the hill was a another house and barn but very loud with iron, i only found the key and a bottle up on the hill, if i switched to my shooter coil it could have maybe picked something out, This bottle was an eye ball find just sticking out from under a root near the other cellar hole, i actually was expecting it to be broken when i wiggled it out. I guess it qualifies for a "today`s find.

Dang! You found all of my favorites in one hunt! Coins, Crotal bell (I still have only found a couple pieces /not a whole one) buttons, key and then you show us the bottle. Heck yea it counts as today's finds. What a way to end. But, you may have some good days yet. I see that Paines Celery compound bottle sells from $8.00 to $20.00. I am assuming yours says Paines on the other side.
Good day indeed!

Looks like you're on a great site there, very peaceful and covid-free too. :thumbsup:
Love the crotal bell and all those coins, finding the complete early brown glass bottle was a real bonus!
