    1915 Pennsylvania State Seal 14k Gold Plated Watch Fob!!!!

    I detected a farm field today and found a cool watch fob. I went home cleaned it up a little and researched it. I found a newspaper online which adevertized it. Turns out they were given out for free if you bought 10 cents worth of "Tuxedo Tabacco". So its a pretty find in that I was able to learn so much about it. Also I do not own the rights to the newpaper, "The Reading Eagle".
    On the back I can make out 14k Gold Plated Geniune

    I like! Very nostalgic.
    Funny, how even back then there was gold-plated stuff. Having gold back then meant a lot too I imagine so.

    How do you like the Vi3?
