    One addition I forgot to ask about. I don't know if you water detect, either shallow water or diving, but there's likely a TON of shipwrecks in the area as well. Centuries of hurricanes dumping...

    Those are some fantastic finds! Sometimes it really pays to go back over areas you've pounded in the past. Changes in ground moisture, hitting targets at a different angle, different state of...

    Those are some great finds! Not often do we see those big coppers in the Midwest, not to mention Canadian. I got lucky once and found a Canukian largie and half cent in the most unexpected of places...

    I suspect ox knobs were more of a cultural item, or maybe a regional fad? The East coast seems to have had more English and French settlers early on, and Irish towards the mid to late 1800s. In the...
