    That's a great group of finds. My first decent find was a silver pocket watch found in the middle of nowhere.

    Have you opened up the watch to see what it says inside?

    Great finds. That watch sure cleaned up well.

    Love them coppers.

    This break in the heat sure has been nice. Glad you were able to take full advantage of it.

    Congrats.

    Congratulations on the watch find, man that's sweet!
    I really like the spur and the buckle as well
    Hope the bee stings were worth it for your finds this weekend.

    That is one great site you have there, very colonial period, the watch seems a little later in date, but not much
