Hi All :wave:

Seems like years since I dug,

Took the T2 out to Cob Cove for the extra low tide this morning,

I've hammered this site for years.

Used the 5" coil, and poked thru the iron patch,

(think you know iron? imagine the main drag of a shipyard in use for 400 years !! )

Pulled lots of small targets down to the size of a single birdshot pellet, half the size of a pea.

in pic # 9

Those Grey Ghost headphones Mikes having a special on will have you hearing targets

that slipped by you before !! I highly recommend calling him http://www.justgodet...re-open-7-days/

Got my 1652 Pine Tree Thruppence! only need the SixPence to complete my set :sFun_bananaunripe:

a pretty smooth 1828/1830/1838 ?? halfdime,

Argentina 20 Centavo, same from 1895-1940, can't see a date on this one..

Garfield and Arthur Political button, this would date 1881 I believe.

Odd buckle, 19th C I think. Police Special Whistle, man, is it LOUD !!

Pewter spoon fragment, Scallop design, it's an oldie

A pair of buttons, backmarked 'G IV The Kings'

got half a dozen of these already....

That's my stuff for today,

Maybe get my 8 Escudo Tomorrow :sunny: HH All !! Herbie.

This Pine Tree was recovered about a mile from where I got the Two Tree Shillings,

no doubt there's more around here :sAni_monkey:

I gave the Argentina Coin an overnight tumble, looks like 1899...

I think an 1899 coin from a country whose name comes from 'Argentum', Latin for silver,

should not be made from cupronickel :sFun_shocked:

Thanks for your replies!

HH Everyone !! Herbie.

Thanks All!

Blaze, I've pounded this area for three years.

I've brought several people I've met on the forums to hunt here...

Worltalker, wallhangers, Testing123, and others.

unfortunately, none of these hunts resulted in anything stunning...

you never know when the goodies will turn up.

best finds were wallhangers 1892 Columbian Exhibition token, I believe his was the US Mint official

issue, he also got a pewter 1812 Script I star in oval button.

The first month I searched .this approx 1.5 acre (at the months lowest tides) area,

It gave unbelievable finds every third or 4th signal, colonial coins and relics of all sorts!

Back then i had just started and knew no other detectorists, and got some rolling eyes at what I was posting

from the old pros, by now I am pretty well respected by them :)

This area still has lots of stuff, just a lot harder to find :sSig_2cents:

There's been an old timer poking around, he's not searching the good spots :sunny:

' This is not my only site, I have many good producers, mostly on the coast...

my first 3- 17th C Silvers were found at another site, a mile or two away..

If anyone has access to early maps of S. NH, MA or ME , I can be your guide matching the old homesites into their modern locations.(not the free ones online everyone knows about and have been 'mostly' cleared out, I've been to almost all those that are not posted/off limits by owners, NH Bobs Clan has pretty much cleaned up these spots)

I also have access to yards of 17th C Houses, lot's of iron there.

If you ever want to visit, your always welcome !!

That goes for everyone who I reply to on posts & reply to mine!,

I feel we are all friends, and My trust has not been misplaced by anyone..

I only ask people I bring to my sites to not bring anyone else without me meeting and getting to know them PM me if your headed to the northeast :wave:

HH All

Welcome! Great to see you here :wave:

From what I read the Mass Silvers were second only to the Spanish as far as circulation numbers

around 1700.. There's more out there, from NE to Florida !!

in the third paragraph here: 'Circulation', their evidence proposes that approx 20% of the silver coinage circulating in NYC were Mass silvers....

Hi Chris! We both missed this tiny thing when we hunted here,

(and did we give it our best efforts! :)

I was searching the area just outside the boatyard, where all the railroad tracks

and mooring chains are buried.

though all the easy targets are gone, it will NEVER be hunted out..

HH! Herbie

Herbie, congrats once again. Sorry I haven't been on here lately. Getting into the thick of my busy season here and its been a crazy summer without me having a chance to swing the detectors. Glad the T2 is working for you, it sure has done well on some of my pounded spots as well. I want you to know that I purposely left that pine tree for you to help you work on completing the collection...sure. I also admire your willingness to share your spots with me and others, I had a great time then and wish I could've made it this year. BTW, the lobster is almost completed, just needs a little paint job. I acquired an old wooden lobster trap to put it in as well so I'll send u pics when it is done. Keep up the good work Herbie!

Hi Mark! Good to hear from you, thanks for leaving that silver :)

It came from that main drag at the end of the boatyard where all the RR tracks, chains & moorings are ....

serious iron to contend with, no doubt the large pieces are hiding more goodies.

I'm trying to clear the area, but RR track is kinda heavy, I have gotten one piece out of the way,

looking forward to seeing that Lobsta :sunny: HH to you! Herbie
