    Eagles, early coins, hutch, and more

    My grandma came down from PA this past week, and we went out antique hunting in W.Va, OH and KY. We did good. She added to her silver hoard, and I pulled some nice artifacts off of the display shelves, and found some nice mailbox finds as well.

    I have a fondness for early coins, but could never afford them until now. So I bought some largies from 1803, 1814, 1832 and 1850. There's some common, but nice coins including a 1913 (V-2) Buffalo nickel, a fine condition V nickel, an error penny, and 1835 Capped Bust quarter, and a hilariously bad 1821 Fake 8 reale coin. I just had to have it, you know?

    Below is a misture of mailbox finds, and antique shop finds. The plate and bullets flanking either end, came together from an antique shop in Huntington W.Va. The plate is a nice repro, but the bullets were eyeballed on the riverbanks of the Ohio River in Huntington. I had to have them as they are a part of local history, and one was fashioned into a sinker.

    The pipe bowl came from Richmond Va, and dates from the 1680s, to about 1720. The shell frag was found along the Mummasburg road in Gettysburg, and the carved Minie ball from a Hospital site outside of Gettysburg. The .69 Cal. minie was big and cool looking, so I got that as a type bullet. The Ringtail sharps was found in Cashtown Pa.

    The real find of the week was this trifecta of eagles. The big green one on top is an M36 Flatwire breast eagle for an army officer. The middle eagle is by far the best: a Panzer officers eagle! This one was really under priced. The golden eagle is an enlisted mans "cap" eagle.

    Sounds like a great and successful treasure hunt with your grandma. And the time together is the most precious of all.
