    Love the old pipe bits. The top one looks like it might be Irish in origin... maybe a Peterson bit?
    If you ever hit the big one detecting....follow the 3S rule. Shoot. Shovel and Shut up.

    Haha! Not the kind of visitors that you would expect. The camp had some family homes and I was able to find where it was. The Prussian silverware and the perfume bottles came from that spot. Thanks all for the comments. It makes pulling all those nails seem worth while.

    The top pipe piece is translucent with a cherry amber color...the pipe is threaded and might be celluloid made to look like amber. That's my best guess.

    Re: 100 year old Washington state logging camp finds

    It's strange that you did not find any tools or other iron pieces other then the saw blade. Around here the woods and camps have so much iron that I leave most of where I find it and only bring out the good iron. The last 2 times out I found 16 double bit axe heads at 2 different locations and left them as they are very common here. Keep digging, the good iron has got to be there.

    Re: 100 year old Washington state logging camp finds

    I agree with the double bits being common. Most of them are heavily rusted, but the conductivity reads of something more like copper...must be a mix of iron and other metals. Other common iron finds include wood stove pieces and railroad spikes. You never know though. I found the Winchester before knowing how to discriminate iron from other metals...might not have bothered to dig knowing what I know now!
