    Great picture, Drew! If you listen closely you can actually hear the colonial coins and relics in the ground.

    Very cool photo Drew. The appeal of the site itself can be as strong as the appeal of the anticipated finds.
    Oldest find: 5,000 year old copper spearhead
    Oldest coin: 1699 William III halfpenny
    Purdiest coin: 1832 Capped Bust quarter
    Coolest find: USA button with blue threads still on shank
