Latest finds from ante-bellum plantation site

Went back last weekend to the old plantation site where I found my 1836 half-dime. That along with several old flat buttons and brass items came from near the family cemetery. This trip my 2 buds and I hunted around a clump of pine trees that was supposedly the old slave cemetery. We found several old wheat cents, flat buttons, a 1901 Barber and an 1887 Indian along with these highlights. The half-reale was dug by one of my buddies. I snagged the NC Sunburst, my second of the season.

Thanks guys! The finds are becoming scarce at this site but it still produces something outstanding from time to time. The last hunt was a full 9 hours with 3 of us going at it. The fellow who found the half-reale is a greenhorn only been detecting a few months. Believe it or not, this was his first silver coin. I don't think his coil touched the ground the rest of the day he was so high.

That is the way it always works. The new hunters always score the awesome finds. Tell him congrats on his great find and never stop searching!
