    I found this last year it was under ground but it was surrounded by what looked like cloth and I'm guessing that's why it was preserved. It came up at a high 90 on my Garrett at pro this was before I got the at max my find was about 2 feet away from a super old oak tree. My guess is the tree was 100+ years old 4 people could hug the tree. Unfortunately I'm missing the top piece where the gunpowder came out of. Next to the oak tree was a big stream once I uncovered it to be honest I didn't know what it was at first I thought it was a drinking canteen so after my long day of finding junk I discovered this trinket. I found out what it was by looking up 1847 flask and i saw this now i truly know what this was

    1 - you cant recommend your own finds for "banner"
    2 - banner finds have to be recently made.

    that stuff aside, its a great find, congrats.

    Great find of the powder flask. It looks to be in very good shape.

    With the handshake and the US in the shield, I wonder whether that was a powder flask of the type that would be presented to important Indian chiefs along with a gun?

    It is called a "peace flask" but it is not something to give to indians, they made thousands of the same flask which happens to be a very collectable and sought after flask. Great find!! These were actually US government issue in the 1850s, you can google them for more of their history.

    It's a great piece. Even hinting it should be a banner, will pretty much disqualify it. Go read the rules again. I found two great items once, 1 made a banner the other not, that's when I read the rules and realized you couldn't get two at the same time. (Have two up there at the same time.) I don't get out much this time of year.

    Just FYI, you joined last year and say you found it last year. Unless you found it after you became a member it wouldn't qualify to begin with and waiting this long to post it after finding it would pretty much rule out banner as well. With that said, it is a very nice powder flask.

    With that kind of luck, it’s just a matter of time until you get yourself a banner! Good luck and keep hunting it.

    That is I think one of the nicest flask I've ever seen found detecting. That IS a treasure.
