These are all coin which were found at and around the site of Byrnside’s Fort. Surprisingly, they seem to be either really early, or really late. Most of the expected 19th century coins aren’t found, despite continuous occupation and a rich Civil War era history. We guesstimate this is due to them being some of the easiest targets on a property which has been metal detecting for half a century. Many of these early finds were way down, or were in the old cellar pit, possibly being involved in a fire.
