    Had epic day with Don. Back to house from last weekend and got an iffy wheat/Indian signal. Getting down to it pulling a wheat I rechecked the hole and got another and another and another........ One hole got 20 wheat, 3 Indian, 3 buffalo, 2 V nickel, 3 mercury dimes! Another hole got 2 more dog tags. Earlier in the day got a barber and a wheat same hole. Course got a Rosie too. Oh and a lone merc all lonesome.
    Last yard of the day got a 2 Indian spill. What a fun day!

    Not as exciting as your silver horde BUT for the States I'll take it. I can't imagine why they were there. Home almost looks to me like it could have been a school house. Several "repairs" to the brick indicate windows that are no longer there with a possible porch or stoop removed. Should be much older coins there in my opinion. Frustrates me to think what may be there just out of reach.

    Wow! That is one of the coolest spills I have seen posted in a long time! and biggest too! And then you get 2 more of those amazing dog tags? They are in great shape. What are the dates on them? 1883? I have heard that those old dog tags are highly collectable...curious what they are worth.

    Wowee! I'm with Bucknut, such an amazing hunt TWO 1800s dog tags don't get mentioned??? I've NEVER dug one from the 1800s. I think You, Don, and aloldstuff are the only ones I've ever seen dug. I could be wrong memory IS what it used to be

    I think he didn't mention the 1800s dog tags because he had an earlier post about the previous one he found in that same yard. It sure makes you wonder why there were three of them in one yard!

    That coin spill is amazing! I can't recall a comparable spill ever being posted with such a variety of old coins. Incredible!

    Lifetime totals:
    8 Large Cents, 388 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 9 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 121 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 383 Mercury Dimes, 236 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 84 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves

    Very solid finds! Agree that the dog tags are by far the best finds of your hunt. I wonder if you could do some research on those at the local town office and see if you could find an attribution?

    Vermont relic hunting, one swing at a time.
