    Another Hunt Another Copper

    Got out with Frank yesterday to a new spot and got this spectacular copper. The detail is amazing. Looks like it was dropped right out of the mint. It was at the lip of the hole about 4" down.

    This makes copper 13 for the year & copper 99., hopefully I can get 100 before the year is over.

    Beautiful, Roger! Those 1817-1820 seem to do well in the dirt! I hope you get more hunting in to grab your 100th!
