    Found this Solid Gold Pocket Watch after my son got me out in the fields again! LOL

    My son (Crabstang44) has been pushing me lately to get my Can out in the Fields and Metal Detect with him so yesterday I had to "show him up"!
    We had been searching some old home sites from probably the 1800's and all I had been getting hits on was trash! I found a place that I presumed was the back 40 area behind where the old house had been and there was still plenty of junk when I suddenly had a jolting hit that showed multiple digits across the scale on my White's VX3/2D....I immediately knew it was telling me possible junk but also possible quality metal! I dug out a plug about 8" deep and out fell this glob of clay and soil about 3"x1" and as I rubbed away some of the gook I suddenly saw the shine of yellow gold enhanced by the afternoon sun! Shortly thereafter, I realized I had found what was left of a very old Pocket Watch!
    After we got home...my son cleaned it and tested the gold to be 10K Solid Gold....In all the excitement out in the Field I neglected to search for other Gold Parts (Back Plate, Winding Knob, Chain Ring & Chain) so this afternoon we have a date to go back to that area and dig some more!
