Default It's been a few years, but I'm back - Cornfield hunt - Coppers,Silver & More

Hey Everyone, it's been a few years since I've been here, but finally got back into metal detecting again.. Got myself permission at a cornfield this year and these are my finds from the past 2 weeks.
1844 LC, 1857 LC, 1755 1/2 Reale, what I believe is a King George II, a couple 2 cent coins, bullets, buttons, musket balls..
Feels good to be back out swinging...

Nice digs. Our family has 2 homes in the town of Catskill if you ever want to try to get together for a hunt up there. (would have to be a weekend)

That BSA jamboree ring is really sweet! Let me know if you want to part with it. My son is in scouts and would probably like that.

BTW, do you have a comic book shop (your handle?).

Hey Upstate Mike, No I don't have a comic book shop, I'm an agent for several comic book artists in which I sell their original art and set up commissions, show appearances, etc.

Welcome back Kotter it seems like the coins are happy to have you back as well. That's a hell of hunt there wish coins would jump out at me like that. Haven't had a field like that in awhile. Great job!

Very cool. I'm in contact with an artist named Steve (The Dude) Rude through work. Thanks for the p.m.
