Default 1800's farm hunt. Big copper, medium copper, small copper...

Bigredogg and Blackhole have been hitting a sweet potato farm built in the 1830's. Bigredogg got the nicest find there with a sweet MA state copper. Here are some of my finds. Any help on that Naval button and salvation army looking button would be helpful. The shotgun brass is for Turtlefoot. That three ring bullet got put into the hydrogen peroxide by mistake, that's why it's so white That metal piece that says Kroydon is part of an old banjo I believe.

Hey Crazyslasher,

Those are some seriously nice finds! I cannot believe all of the old coins! That is awesome. You found yet another headstamp that I have not seen in person! That is a neat Western headstamp.

Great finds once again!
Doug

Default Headstamps

You know Doug everytime Crazyslasher and I are out we think of you now. We are always finding those headstamps and the very first thing that comes to mind is Turtlefoot.

Today was the slashers day. Blackhole and I both only turned up a Wheatie.
The rest of the day for me was canslaw and "Headstamps".
I am including the pic for you Doug.

Thanks for the compliments. And again, thank you to Blackhole for hooking us up with some great spots. I can't wait for the next couple months.
