    We Found Another 1833 Home site!!! Amazing Hunt!!! Bucket Lister for AL

    Friday, Noah and I hit a house in the afternoon and Dug these:

    Yesterday morning, Alec, Noah and I went back to the cornfield that we've been hunting. Things are definitely slowing down there, but we did manage a couple more buttons each.
    We decided to try another old brick home that we drove by the week before. Noah got us a yes and after talking to the home owner we found out that the front of the property also had an 1833 cabin on it and the current house was built in 1846. Turns out the original owner was the brother of the owner of the 1833 site that we have been hitting for the last month.

    The finds started right away and just kept coming!

    My first good find, 1820 Large Cent

    Near the end of the day I dug this:
    1792 /1793 French Louis XVI 2 Sols
    ( I posted on a couple Face book pages that it was a 6 denier, but based on the diameter and weight I realized it was a 2 Sols ) Oops

    That “denier” picture , one of them the coin is turned sideways.
    Anyways happy birthday! I’m glad I caught the homeowner walking in the yard picking up sticks. He was walking back to the house and we could’ve easily missed him again.
