  1. Thanks again for the wealth of information and for taking the time to put it together and share it.
  2. Holy smokes this is cool. Often I do a little research, show my finds to some friends or post on Instagram or Facebook then put them in my display case. I'm so glad I came back to the forum. The information and support here is amazing! Thanks!
  3. Thanks everyone for the interest and great questions. There appear to be rudimentary threads in the back. I included more pics. If you edit it with Instagrams editing you can bring out details better. I rarely find jewelry but for the last few weeks I have been on a jewelry run.
  4. 2Valen, The inscription reads, "Joy of I" It could be read as Joy of 1 perhaps as well. I pushed it into play-do and it left a stamp. It is brass and glass and was found in upstate NY in the Capital district. It reminds me of Roman carnelian stone jewelry.
  5. I found this today along with a pewter button in a field that was in use for hundreds of years. I am interested in finding out what it is. Thanks!
  6. I wanted to but my phone was dead and my wife would have worried ? I went today in the snow and found a button and a musketball but that was it.
  7. The Connecticut Colonial copper coin was from 1787. I had never found one before and I'm actually from Connecticut originally and I found two in one day I can't believe it. The other coin I believe is a georgius triumpho from 1783 or around that time. It is really hard to detect in my town because the ground is all sand and even modern coins can be found down 8-inches or so so all the old stuff is really deep unless you go to a plowed field. I found six coppers in this cornfield last year and they're going to build up on it in a few days so it's nice that the bulldozers helped me uncover some more before it was gone.
  8. Thanks a bunch! I caught it in the Mohawk River in Clifton Park, NY.
  9. It was quite an afternoon. After school I planted some shrubs, painted some chairs, and replaced our central air filters. I was waiting for the bulldozers to leave one of the last cornfields in town so I could save some history before it was lost forever to another housing development. The workers were still there so I fished the river for a while and caught my biggest walleye ever on my fly rod. I then headed back to dig with only a half an hour of light left and I started finding treasures right away. I metal detected in the dark for an hour or two and came away with four coins and 6 buttons. It is important to try to make everyday count. If anybody knows what type of coins they are I would much appreciate to know ?
  10. Fabulous story and finds Steve! I definitely want to experience treasure hunting over there as well. I want to catch an Atlantic Salmon as well when I'm there too ?
