    2 Copper Day!

    Hey All. been a while since I've gotten out, been way to hot this summer.

    Got out for a bit today and nabbed a King William, crusty liberty cap and a possible LC but to shot to tell. Messed up a yellow jacket nest with out knowing it until I was a bit from it & noticed them all swarming over the hole trying to figure out how to get in.

    Fall temps are in the air!

    Thanks Drew. This is a site I've been to before but haven't pounded it. There is a lot of area to cover so I spent 4hrs gridding it back & forth, which got me the goodies.

    As far as the mystery disc It might be a copper but it's so beat up & dented there's no identifying marks. It does sound different compared to the other coppers when you drop them, doesn't have that ring like a copper. Perhaps it was a counterfeit?
