Colonial hunt and a first!

I went back to the old cellar hole where I got the nice cartwheel penny.  Got a decent assortment of colonial goodies and definitely going back when I can. The owner said he will clean it up a bit and level it out for me, which I'm really grateful for!  Everything is pretty self explanatory, with the exception of the coin. It's a 1788 Anglesey Mines penny token, druid head variety. It almost looked like a 1700's french Sol at first. Thanks for looking!

Thank you!  I hadn't heard of them either, but I guess there's lots out there...they may not be dug, but there's lots for sale

Thanks guys
 I'll try to get there before the freeze, but with my work schedule, it's not looking good Sad  If I don't get out again, I'll make some top 5 lists to fill in time. Could be fun for everyone!

Even if the weather and time doesn't cooperate, I'm going to stay positive and look forward to the spring hunts. If he could spread the dirt that he piled up and move the pile of foundation stones, I'm sure it will keep producing. Best case scenario is he does that and scrapes off the top where he knocked the trees down.
