These artifacts are associated with the Southworth home site on East Tinmouth Road (see Southworth Cellar Hole in the Cellar Hole collection). 

The cover photo is a George Washington Inaugural coat button made in 1789.  Below is a 1747 Spanish Silver Real followed by a photo containing a number of items including a 1757 King George Half  Penny, 1808 Classic Head Large cent and 1813 Nova Scotia Half Penny Trade.  Most of the items are mid to late 1700's to early 1800's. 

The last photo is also indicative of the same era.  It includes a 40 cal. dropped musket ball, brass horse/ox tack buckle, small (Dandy) coat button, knee buckle with iron chape and tongue, and an oxen shoe.

The 1757 King George Half  Penny, 1808 Classic Head Large cent and 1813 Nova Scotia Half Penny Trade and Navigation Token were all found within 10 feet of the cellar hole. The 1747 Spanish Silver Half Real was found 75 ft directly behind the cellar hole in the field. The GW button was found Northwest of the hole about 200 ft away. Coins are usually not dropped the year they were minted but are considerably older than the house.

These photos are from 2019 courtesy of Phil Mandolare.
