    New guy here from western, Mass. Hilltown boy.

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum. I just met angel in Westfield and he recommended this site. I run an At pro,Garrett carrot,T handle digger as well as the Garrett hand digger. I'm always looking for new places to hunt and always searching for new hunting partners. My most notable finds are 1845,1852 large cents,1787 CT copper,1936 walker, and an 1876 seated quarter. I've also dug the 1908S Indian, she's rather crusy but still nice. If there is anyone in the Western mass Area, please let me know.
