Thread: Great start to 2014

    Great start to 2014

    After hanging up my detector last September 2 days ago I finally got out for a real woods hunt. I know I haven't been on this or any forum in some time but I thought I would stop buy and share my finds from that day. I couldn't ask for a better way to start the 2014 season. 4 Copper, a few Buttons, 1 little Indian, a shoe Buckle Frame and my 3rd GW Button. Needless to say, I can hardly wait to get back to that site.

    However, with the frequency and volume I'm seeing these being found and posted...I'm beginning to wonder how rare they truly are

    Nice Now count the denticles (marks) around the edge and tell me there are 72 of them. There can be 49, 54, 63 or 72. 72 is better than 63

    If I have the variety correct, it is listed as WI 12 D in Albert's book. Rarity 6. His book was printed around 1976. The rarity numbers are based on how many specimens are known to exist. These numbers are surely out of date now. A Rarity 6 (R6) in his book list that there are between 3-5 known. I'm sure there are more known to exist now, but it still ranks as one of the rarer varieties. Great button
