    4 possibly 5 silvers!(UPDATE St Christopher medal returned)

    Hit up a new spot tonight and had a great hunt! Literally stepped out of the truck and got a solid dime hit and ending up pulling the sterling (stamped on the back) St. Christopher pendant! UPDATE just did a search for the name engraved on the back and I will be returning it to the owner who lost it 41 years ago! Awesome! The next target was the flattened thimble it came out of the ground as it's shown in the picture so I'm assuming it is silver but has no marking on the outside indicating that it is (possibly inside?) I was barely able to make out the dime was a Merc when it came out ofthe ground I was near a sidewalk and this coin was cakes with crap and black as could be. I was able to pull a date of 1917 but can't say on mint mark. The Washington quarter was part of a spill containing 2 wheats and a 46 Jefferson it felt great to pull a silver quarter again! The ring is made by the same Uncas company as the sterling and ruby ring I found a few weeks back, I love the color of the stone in this one!

    Also ending up digging 2 padlocks a Slaymaker Rustless and the RFD I love digging these things! The Statue of Liberty pin is missing her torch but still a neat find and a pretty neat Girl Scouts pin

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    That's a great hunt! Good luck on the medal return. Hope you are well rewarded. Cjon455 dug that same Girl Scout pin on our very first hunt together.

    some great finds there, I think that thimble is sterling for sure, doesn't look aluminum and just has that look, if you have a way of un-flattening it, the stamp should be on the inside
