My MXT has been very busy for about the last year. Here is my partial scorecard:

1 1722 Rosa American US penny
4 18th Century Spanish Silver coins, one is a 1/8 slice of an 8 reale
4 US pennies, three 1798, one 1794 thick planchet
British 64th regiment of foot officers
British pewter royal provincial
British Navy captain circa 1774
British Navy lieutenant circa 1768
American artillery \& engineers, Albert #AY10, the first ever found
American light artillery circa 1812
US Navy cuff circa 1840-1850
US Marines circa 1865
1- Confederate infantry
2-Civil War era South Carolina
3Silver spoon fragments 18th Century
1 Fragment of a silver bracelet
2 Silver buttons Handle facing for a hairbrush
Numerous butt plates, trigger guards, side plates, etc. From weapons confiscated by reconstruction Yankees From freed slaves and destroyed.
Lots of Etc.
I am probably considered a disgrace to the detecting hobby since I search at my own expense and give 100% of the finds to the Plantation owners. I do all my searching at South Carolina Coastal Former Slave Plantations. I can’t explain the high numbers of coins I have found from places that seemingly had no need for coins.
