    Oh yeah - my first Vermont Copper

    Hit a few permission fields with my friend here on the forum DavidGC. Finds were rather slow, but did manage my 6th copper of the year toward the very end of the day. It was nearly slick, but after some light cleaning it revealed itself at a Vermont Copper - my first and top bucket lister up to that point. Oh yeah baby! It's worn but I don't really care. Have narrowed it down I think to a Bressett 10, 13, 22 or 23 variety. HH!
