    Thanks everyone! I'm not sure I'll ever top a day like that.

    Funny thing was, being caked in dirt, the first thing I saw was some fancy around the edges and thought it was just another dandy with...

    I've joined "The Club"! - 4/23

    So, two weeks ago when we found that we were on an untouched site, Dan made a prediction a couple hours into the hunt. With all the dandy buttons popping, there had to be a George Washington...

    Amazing colonial site with Del - 4/9

    Dan already summed up our adventures from Saturday, so I'll keep it brief.

    Spot #1 looked great with hardly any walls, all by it's lonesome, and even the tiny road into it was mostly overgrown by...

    That piece is built like a clip-on earring Tim. But I think it clipped onto clothing maybe.

    The oval piece is part of a saddle strap guide Al. It was great seeing you again!
  6. Group hunt with del, Jim, Jeff, and Al - 4/1

    Dan and I met up with a MangoAve, Lodge Scent, and Aloldstuff on Friday for a 6 or 7 hour group hunt on the 9 acre field I got permission for this week. There was a home on it at one point, now it's...
  7. Group hunt with the Digger Duo, hiluxyota, Drew and Del - 3.26

    I too have been reminded I've been quiet here lately, so I'll start posting up, and get some past digs up too.

    Like the title states, got together with Dan for the usual Saturday dig, plus some...

    I have a very similar tool I used to use for cleaning corroded circuit traces when I repaired electronics back in the day. A Precista 267 manufactured in Germany. ...

    The Flying Eagle was 1857, my bad.
    Thanks for the link on the spoon. Bailey was coming up, just not with the maker's mark I had.

    The Classic is in great shape, 1813. And to find one in this good condition isn't easy, so I'm very happy. It needs a wee bit more of cleaning, but it's stuck on good. The KG2 at that same hole is...

    Group hunt in Mass - 11/15

    Our friend Jim in Sturbridge is on a permission roll this summer. He was hunting public land and got approached by a private land owner who was worried Jim was trespassing. He wasn't, and after...

    Thanks everyone!

    Yes Drew, I was working around the stone pile at the "hole".
    I'm not sure if the different freq makes the difference Al. The MXT runs at 14kHz, and the V3i uses 2.5, 7.5, and...

    I'm liking the MXT a whole lot Dave. Can see why you and Todd are locked into them. Only a month with it and it feels like an old friend.

    Back to the cabin site - 11/14

    First of all, I love switching from my V3i to the plain MXT. So fast and simple, I love it for cellar hole hunts. I finally tossed my D2 coil on it for this weekend's hunts.

    Dan and I got started...

    I'll get up a post tomorrow Dan. Yesterday's group hunt coughed up two largies for me and what I think is a very worn copper.

    I'm not dead! 3 of the last 5 hunts.

    Not dead, just busy and forgot to post up in AD the past couple weeks. Sorry!

    On 10/31 Dan and I headed out for a 2'nd shot at locating a home site in an area that had lots of walls and activity,...

    Lone find from a NH dig - 10/18

    Ok, I lied. I dug an escutcheon plate from a piece of furniture too, but didn't bother with a pic.

    Met with some friends in southern New Hampshire for a group dig. 9 or 10 of us, including a shop...

    It was almost in the open area Drew. It was maybe 10ft into the road that went through the stone wall that's blocked by 2 large boulders. I did get that chape and plain button in the open area...
  21. My oldest coin with Drew and Dan! - 10/24

    Saturday Dan and I took a ride into Drew's neck o' the woods to check out a spot that was supposed to have a cellar hole.
    Found the road, found the walls, and then it looks like we found what we...

    Congrats on the trigger guard and trime! That spot was good to all of us again.

    Congrats Drew! Nice pile of buttons and buckles. Considering where that site is and the damage from logging, etc, that spot has done very well.

    Thanks everyone! I tried Dan's heat lamp trick, but the crust didn't pop off. It didn't get flaky at all after I dug it. I'm in no hurry with it, hopefully there's some detail left.
