    The Garrett Guys Had A Magnificent Day Today.....Check It Out (long)



    Met my buddy at MacDonald's and had s short discussion on where to go hunting today. It was his call, and a good call he made. Here's my junk.....just a reminder that we all dig lots of it. It's the price we pay for getting great finds!



    Here's the good stuff. A lot of old, interesting items came out of the ground today. Eight hours of hunting....what a joy.



    The silver gods blessed me with some nice silver coins. Also pulled out an RCMP quarter, which don't show up very often.



    And speaking of silver, this pocket watch backing showed up at about 7 inches. It has some interesting hallmark stamps on it. I have no idea on it's date, but perhaps some of those hallmarks might yield some clues....



    Man...another ring. This machine barks loud when a ring gets underneath that coil. Mmmmmm, I wonder what what goes into that odd looking pipe?



    Here's a nice old vintage broach. I put it in my ultrasonic cleaner to get rid of all the dirt and oxides embedded in the broach. A before and after shot for comparisons.



    Here's a cute little treasure I dug up. It was only a couple of inches [/left] down and read in the high 70's on the VDI. Here's a link for more info on PRINCESS PAT products. http://retroways.blogspot.com/2009/0...cosmetics.html



    Here's my buddy's take less the junk from today. He tried very hard to get some silver....but not today. He did manage to find one of those "MERRY WIDOWS" condom containers which date back close to the turn of the century. And, we both scored a ring today.

    It just doesn't get any better then it did today!

    The watch back looks like Sterling(lion), made in Chester, England(shield with sword in middle).
    I can't see the maker's mark well enough to have an opinion as to who made it. Likewise with the date mark. It could be:
    1892, 1827, 1805, or 1709. Or possibly newer than 1925 as I didn't see any new date codes.
