    Fall start, slow but a start - Very Large (broken) Jews Harp)

    Not much to see here and the only reason I'm posting is because of this crazy large jews harp. I have never seen one of this type anywhere near as big. A shame it's broken. For size reference the copper is a George III Hibernia Halfpenny.

    It is great to see Patch hunting the patches again. That is the largest Jew's harp I have ever seen. That would be put in my display case at the end of the year. I want to see that Georgie!

    I have seen some fairly big ones that dated later but never a Colonial period one this large and I have seen many. I have probably dug 25 and my largest until now isn't even close.

    Good to see ya at it Patch, Maybe the jews harp was for the bass player, Looks like you got ya a ram rod guide to there.I'm hopeing to get at it soon but need to finish around the house here. Besides it's seems like the rain here is just non-stop.But I have all winter here to go so theres time. I've got some company coming next weekened who wants to do a little hunting so that will most likely be my first for the fall season.

    Yep, that's about my 7 thimble in the last few years but has been many years since I've found the larger Ramrod pipe.

    Didn't know Jews played the harp. Always thought it was the stock market

    The biggest I can find.89mm Which looks like the size of yours just guessing. But is big for sure compared to my biggest only being 50mm long.But you know what they say it's not how big but how you use them.

    Yep. That's the same. I'm guessing my largest before this one was probably like you, maybe 50mm.

    I'm not googling it, but you might like to. I knew (might still be able to contact) someone who studied these in the UK. They where much larger & some much wider at the bow end.

    No, maybe someone else will, I'm not that interested in harps. Just curious how big they were because this one dwarfs all the others I have seen. I'll now go back to focusing my energy on finding a big old silver coin or officer button.
