Yeah yeah, keep rubbing it in. I actually do have to stop and think when I go to list where each one was found. Is that my advanced age of 56 memory loss ? Or is it the list of GC's is getting too long ? haha

You definitely earned this one. Some of the crazy antics we've experienced, and long-winded research we go through .......... it was about time.

Well deserved find Brian! That is one heck of a bucket lister to get. Welcome to the club!

We only found a couple buttons and musketballs at our site that night. Glad to see someone walk away with some period coins!
