    Fresh late 1800s house tear down. Interesting finds! Two mystery finds.

    I discovered a late 1800s house tear down while driving through the old part of town yesterday. Had to get there right away and it paid off. The guy that lives next door to it told me someone had already been there earlier that morning, then I saw fresh holes in the front lawn area, left uncovered with mounds of dirt by them. I covered them up, even though it was a house tear down. I have also seen holes just like that left in the local parks here and it makes me mad! I did get two silvers and a few wheat's, the best one is the 1919S. The two mystery items are the long spring hinge item and the steel wheel with the man in the middle. The Knife blade says, ( raw hide. and has a canoe with a man in it, with a cross on the sides of the canoe). Thanks for looking!!

    The "long spring hinge thing" could maybe be a holder for business cards ? Is it the right size for that ?

    I agree that the clip is a business card holder. The knife is Queen steel. My grandfather gave me his.

    I take my hat of for you, its not to many that cover up others holes!
    And the finds are interesting, the knife looks like an Queen Rawhide American pocket knife , 1405 Canoe 1980 or 1982

    Nice look haul on such a short time to get it done in. Its very considerate of you to correct another detectorist mistakes, things like that give us all a bad name. Good things come to good people
    When you feel down because you didn’t
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.
