    First capped bust dime

    My last time through Buckingham Courthouse, I saw a septic cleaning service van with painted Randy Quaid on the side of it ("shitter's full!" - Christmas Vacation) 😂

    First capped bust dime

    Definitely being careful! I put enough distilled water on it to get the dirt off and immediately stuck it in a protective coin holder (after it dried, of course).

    First capped bust dime

    Today I dug some shot pennies, 3 ringers, round balls, a 20th century NYC seal button, and my first cap bust dime. Fun day!

    Buckle, bullet, buttons and balls (tiny silver, too)

    Last hunt until after Christmas. Two spots today. The first produced the pewter piece (melted) and buckle (dates between1630-1690). Meager finds after those two. The second spot revealed the Sharp's, musketballs, flat buttons and a tiny silver cuff link top. The wait for the next hunt is going...

    Didn't even know it existed!

    Thanks bud and thanks for the insight on the item. It had a little insignia of some kind on it briefly, but it vanished with the lightest qtip brushing. Do you know what era?

    Didn't even know it existed!

    I had an interesting hunt today. I found a coin that I wasn't even aware existed: a 1722 Rosa Americana 1/2 penny, composed of "bath metal" and minted in Philadelphia. I also dug my first silver ring, a couple bullets, a round ball, a large rivet, a copper cap of some kind, and a lead or...

    CW camp and horse farm finds

    Confederate. Sharp's variant bullets gave it away for me.

    CW camp and horse farm finds

    Extended the weekend by one more day to do a little digging. Seems like it was a good idea after all.

    A little silver and copper and a lot of lead

    New spot yesterday produced a lot of targets. 1774 holed 1/2 reale, 1/4 pistareen, 1897 Barber dime, slick large cent (I can barely see a Matron head), copper ring, Sharp's variant bullet, musketballs and a silver utensil handle.

    Dirt lunch

    Fun lunch hunt. The dandy has a little fancy around the edge. I dug this same button at a another nearby property, but the silver wash was still somewhat intact. The darker button with the backmark says Lewis & Tomes Extra Rich. Those two round lead pieces, I can't quite figure them out...

    Two hunts, Two 1812 Buttons

    The yellow/orange button might actually pre-date the War of 1812. I'm working on cleaning and preserving the other, a Light Artillery 2 button. Also bagged a VA half penny, 1840 half dime (tiny!), smashed thimble, a pair of musketballs, buckles, scale weights and even some mystery metal LOL...
