    Where to begin. . .

    It's been awhile. . . a lot going on with my 91-year-old uncle and all the "honey-do's"
    around the house (you know, the federales ).

    But anyway, I got out with Kimsdad & Older Actor about two weeks ago to an old, old spot.
    About 200 years old and we all found some cool stuff. . . (Neil scored big with Spanish silver
    and a flintlock side-plate plus a few other goodies ) and Older Actor found some
    sweet stuff too. . . and he traded me a couple of his "trade beads" for one of my trade
    buttons . . . which was really cool

    OK, on to last week. . .

    Last Friday I got out Gimsium and we headed to the south woods where we both score some
    goodies (silver) in a forest clear-cut area that dated pre-'65 It was nice to find to
    find SOME coinage that didn't require the Peroxide method of conservation

    On Saturday, Kimsdad & I headed to a spot. . . courtesy of Lowbatts & Mayo. . . that was
    totally V I R G I N and everyone scored with silver and other goodies. One of my
    more "interesting" finds was an "O.K. Vender" slot token with the steel center rusted out. After
    looking it up, I found out these were used during prohibition. . . which is really kind of cool.

    So, that's about it. . . thanks for looking!

    Wow!
    Talk about covering the bases Mark!

    Coins, bling, relics and more! I didn't get to see those nickels earlier, they did come out great!

    What a taste of a formerly busy, unhunted site can do, eh?

    Love that fork!

    Great kickoff on the cool weather hunt season!

    If you run out of room or display space, I could hold them for the next 50 years or so.


    Congratz on the finds!
