    A few more doo-dads and another LC

    Hi folks. Hope this note finds you all well. Had time to only do a few hunts over the past few weeks on either side of a well-needed vacation to Kennebunk and Goose Rocks Beach - long time family spot. First hunt was with a buddy of mine in central VT, then another short hunt for about an hour and a half yesterday evening before a storm cut things short. Found a few keepers including a fairly nice rosette with rope/spiral pattern, some sort of escutcheon piece or perhaps another small/older rosette, and another, basically toasted LC. It's exactly the same thickness and diameter as a Draped Bust, so I imagine that's what it is. If you use your imagination that's kinda what I see on the zoom pic of the obverse. Regardless, a keeper. Kids will be heading back to middle school/high school in a few weeks and more time will free up. Looking forward to that and cooler weather. HH and best regards.

    John

    Thanks much Al. Toasted LC, but LC nonetheless - always nice to see those pop out of the ground!

    You know Drew - I said the same thing when I first cleaned it up. I thought those were quite rare, and since it was exactly the same diameter and thickness as a DB I thought as much. I guess since it's not totally conclusive I can imagine as much!

    In all honestly that's what I'm guessing. The Flowing Hair - I believe those were thicker than the DBs anyway. Thanks for the comment and HH!
