    Yesterday WAS Pleasant in CT

    Todd was right...CT has been beautiful of late.
    I hit my new permission and some state cellar holes the past few days...came away with-

    !787 CT copper
    Wheat Pennies
    Disston saw medallion
    Usual relics

    I've been going back to cellar holes that we pounded years ago in hopes I could squeak out something with some better technology. We did a good job on those sites back in the day but I have to say...they're being hit CONSTANTLY now. I found the flat button at a site where there were 100 fresh dig holes...there must have been four people there last weekend for hours...they dug everywhere!

    HH, Drew

    Wow that is a sharp CT Drew. A lot of people have extra time on their hands these days to spend detecting. After a few skunkings, many will get bored with the hobby.
    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

    Thanks, Tony...yeah, it's a deep strike, and a rare one where the "CONN" is most worn away. I bet it I could find the variety. Any dateable CT is worth the trip! Thanks!
    Yeah, Jeff...I didn't think of that...these holes are getting hit multiple times a week. I'm going back to that place bc I found that button on the lip and numerous shot gun shells in the adjoining field, so there has to be stuff left. Thanks, Bud!

    I know, Dan...the amount of dig holes was amazing at this one place.

    I remember years ago going to some of these holes and not digging low conductors...still cherry picking! It's also easier to find these holes now...doesn't take much experience to find 'em. Thanks, Dan!

    I just moved, Al . 3 miles away. My next move will be to a nursing home. That CT does appear clipped but I have no idea. I didn't even think about a variety. I just gave up on all that . Thanks, Sir!

    That CT is in above average condition for sure. Bits and pieces that’s what we do.
    Dig Colonial or Go Home
