    Finds from the past two weekends: Coppers are adding up...

    Hi all,

    I and @greenmountaindiggers hit some new permission properties in the Champlain Valley over the past two weekends, one in VT and one in NY, one of which is a privately owned historic site. I think in total we dug about 20 coppers, 9 more of which found my coil along with a number of relics. Surprisingly no old silver for us (US or Spanish), but that's how it goes. Really happy with the Liberty Cap Cent, only my 4th and tough to come by in this hobby, even here in the old country of New England. Here's some pics of my finds below from the multi-day haul. Thanks for looking.

    -John

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Coppers are:

    1) 2 Connecticut copper cents (1787 and no date)
    2) 2 Draped Bust Large Cents (1798 and no date)
    3) Slick Rick
    4) KG II half penny, nearly wiped
    5) Worn Matron Large Cent (no date)
    6) Wellington Token 1814
    7) Liberty Cap Cent (1796, var. S-84).
