15 mini round balls the 13 small ones all in the same hole.
the other larger two not far form them.
dug the 13 round balls from the same hole with a 4 1/2 ft eastern diamondback sitting less than 6 feet from me
the whole time, had one eye in my hole and one on him ...

pulled up a 1700`s musket ram rod guide. link below to exact match
( towards bottom of page )

another spoon - Plated .
another sinker
shell casing, car parts, and a few pennies that didn’t make the photo shoot.

Thanks For peeking ...

BONES ...

I've never seen one of those before, and it's not everyday we can pull a 1700's piece, so, I'm adding that bad boy to the banner. Congrats! Yes Amazing coin, terrific condition. Thanks for keeping me inspired since I haven't had much time to hunt lately, Bones!

P.S. - Almost looks like a half penny.

Joe

Wow. Thank you Joe, and everyone. 
pulled that one up quick swinging on my way home. i`ll be back at the spot
early A.M. sharp to swing around that area very slow ...

Thank you for the comments. and, thank you Joe for giving it a home up top.
pretty happy about this find.
did a little research on this token, from what i read there are very few samples
that do not have the large die crack through the back .
i have found 5 samples without the crack online .
does anyone have any further book info on this token. without the die crack ....

thanks again everyone.
