    Warm Days for Hunting in the Northeast - Draped Bust

    Saturday here in NY was absolutely beautiful, nearly 60 degrees.. So grabbed the metal detector and went hunting in same old wooded field that I found all those shoe buckles and buttons. Managed to pluck out 1 more Large cent , 1803 Draped Bust! Went back out on Sunday but it ended quickly as hunters were out and about squirrel hunting.
