Default Cleaned up Wrap up - Looting VA

Got in 3 days of digging in VA. Day 4 was scratched by weather.

Day one door knock by myself, day two door knock with JD and epic day 3 with JD and host Coinwhisperer.

Got home this afternoon. Cleaned and sorted everything.

20 Silvers (1907S Barber semi key)
4 Indians (1874 semi key)
1 V Nickel
2 Buffs
25 wheats

12 of coins were over 100 years old.

3 Keeper Military Items and a mystery lead item I thought was a bag seal, but appears to be carved or maybe a button? Any ideas?

Really happy for you Jerry. Your trip was a great success and you made it back safely. The number of Silver's you 3 dug yesterday was fantastic. I imagine your already making plans for another pillaging adventure. Congrats! Trapper

Thanks Trapper! I will probably never have another hunt like this weekend. Looks like I am doing a short notice move to central Florida. Not a beach hunter so my detecting is probably going to be cut back substantially for a couple years. Coming out of semi-retirement for an offer I couldn’t refuse.

It was great weekend with two great detectorists. CW running his Nox and JD running his T2SE. Good times.
