    Ring return gives me some good karma

    this guy's wife lost her wedding band while cleaning up her flower garden.Found it within 5 mins.Glad to get it back on her finger. a snow squall started just after I found it. ugggh..winter is coming!
    After the ring return I turned down his offer of any money for finding it Me and Lynne went to a trashy cellar hole that I have wanted to get back to.
    mixed in the iron around the lip of the cellar I dug this conductor hat badge.Think it's from a late 1800's NYC Trolley Car Conductors hat.
    I think the small letters on the badge is a long number 3 with the word Ave in the logo.

    This was what I found on the internet.Any RR or Trolley car buffs out there care to chime in..I'd love to hear your thoughts.
    The origins of the Third Avenue Railway System can be traced back to a simple horsecar line operated by the Third Avenue Railroad Company between City Hall and 62nd Street in Manhattan in 1853. By the 1870s, routes had been extended as far north as 129th Street and across the length of 125th Street. At its peak, more than 1700 horses were stabled by the railway to keep up with demand. By 1885, Third Avenue Railroad had opened its first cable car line on Amsterdam Avenue. The 125th Street and Third Avenue lines were converted to cable car operation by 1893.

    Heading to Ohio in the morning to work on the Morgans Raid confederate battle for 4 days. Should be interesting to see what we find for the local museum & historical society

    Good job on both!
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.

    Kudos on the ring find/return. That conductor piece is super cool. I believe the CR stands for city railway.
