Default Colonial plethora!

Hey everyone, finally had some time to get out last night, and instead of hitting the same old parks and ballfields, met up with a buddy and hit a rev war muster field that he has permission to hunt. We have been here before and lots of colonial coppers and a couple 1600's silvers have showed up. Gotta be a bigger reale in here. Possibly even early American silver. No silver for either of us but together we hit 6 coppers, all 1700's or older. Some really awesome relics too. Felt good to get out and hunt again, my boy just turned one and my little girls 5th bday party is a week from today, so needless to say, I won't have much time this week. But should be able to get some hunting in this weekend at some point. Also added a pic of what I believe to be a rev war ammo crate plate possibly? Any Intel would be appreciated! Thanks for looking everyone and happy hunting!

You New Englanders just kill me! I spent an hour at a hammered park scratching around in the dry dirt and trash hoping for a dang wheat! AND I wasn't successful!

Awesome finds as usual!

Wow, great finds bud! Holy Cow! Was wondering where you'd been. Figured you were probably out trying to make extra money for that other special event coming up.

Super finds man!

Some of those buttons go way back too. Up to the early 18e century for sure.
And perhaps even more back but for that i have to have more details.

Holy cow !!!!! congrats on the super old goodies......Ok, I was hopin somebody else would have asked but they didn't , so what do you suppose the hand engraved silvery item is? how thick is it? and how wide?
What a super awesome old piece of land you've found there......
I wish my vacation out there could have been a week longer, but I was pretty stoked to come home with my first 1700's coin anyway........
Can't wait to see what else you guys pull outta there.......
Bob
