    it snowed twice (for only a few minutes each time) , lot of hiking with little rewards but i so needed the exercise and did enjoy being in the woods again . i did sneak out a decent Connecticut though.

    Great batch of finds. Being mostly a Park hunter I find very few nice relics. It's great to see a nice assortment of relics. The coins are pretty spectacular as well. On a side note I have never even found a watch FOB. Great finds. WD

    Thanks guys!
    Hey Dan, I remember a forum brouhaha about these Prince of Wales pieces...what was the outcome? It's not a rev war item, right? Why did farmers around here have that design on their saddles?

    Drew , at the time the Prince of Wales (the usual title for the next heir to the throne ) was far more liked than the king who imposed much of the taxation and oppressive laws on the colonists , these have been proven to be for civilian only as far more have been found at non military related sites . "sword holder/gag loop guy " .... I was trying to forget him , I hope I don't have to meet him in person again .

    Wow, you have been busy, Drew! It's hard to pick a favorite from this group because there are so many wonderful finds! How much detail is on the William III copper? Enough to identify it, obviously. Is that a coin from the 1600s?
    Lifetime totals:
    9 Large Cents, 395 Indian Heads, 2 Two Cent Pieces, 1 Capped Bust Half Dime, 1 Seated Half Dime, 10 Shield Nickels, 67 V Nickels, 122 Buffalo Nickels, 31 War Nickels, 16 Seated Dimes, 128 Barber Dimes, 386 Mercury Dimes, 240 Rosies, 4 Seated Quarters, 15 Barber Quarters, 17 Standing Liberty Quarters, 86 Silver Washingtons, 1 Seated Half, 3 Barber Halves, 16 Walking Liberty Halves
