    Not usually jazzed about wheats, but there's more.

    I've been sifting topsoil (to use in my yard) at my aunt's house and I got to about ten buckets and decided it was time for something completely different - detecting. She has an old foundation on her property that dates to the first half of the 19th century, supposedly, and I've found lots of older wheats, an Indian or two and only two silvers near this foundation (a Merc and war nickel). On the newer areas, I've found more silver but that's beside the point. I've been over this particular plot of ground a lot, and Kiros32 and DrDetector have also spent time there. Imagine my surprise when my first signal was a 1958 wheat. A little while later, a 57D. Suddenly, I heard someone say, "You getting rich?" or something like that. I looked up and there was one of my aunt's older twin daughters. All I could say was, "What are you doing here?" She lives, you see, in Arlington, Virginia. Turns out my aunt has a heart procedure at 6AM tomorrow morning! Once again, my mother forgot to tell me something . I ended up with five wheats, the nicest being a 19S, and this seems to be a pattern with me. I search an area thoroughly, I think, and go back some months or years later and find wheats I missed. This seldom happens with any other coins, especially silver. The ground is nice and damp, but not sloppy, so maybe that wasn't the case when I've hunted there before. I also added a military button; I trust that someone here will be able to identify an era. There don't appear to be any markings on the back. My last signal was real sloppy, but this is a spot where that could be gold and I dug. It was this 50 cent trade token, patented June 1909. Does anyone know what the Ingle system is? I'll research. I didn't notice the crack when I dug it, but it was in two pieces when I got home. The crack isn't clean, so It must have been hairline and I didn't see it. The token alone was worth the effort; four of the five wheats will go back in circulation!

    Nice buttons coins & Token!
    I'm gonna start sifting this season.
    I believe the ingles system was intended to be a fair trade barter system as later envisioned by von nothaus, with his 'Liberty Dollars',
    For which he is now serving a life sentence, or close to it.

    Sifting often yields treasures you wouldn't find detecting: clay marbles (and regular), small relics of other types, sometimes coins, too.

    Indeed
    I'm most interested in the edges & bottoms of foundations where surface iron makes finding the goods near impossible.
    would you mind describing the setup you use? wood frame & wiremesh
    about your eagle button, you say no markings, is it ironbacked ? Thanks & HH to you

    I have two screens, both with 1/4" wire mesh and I'm thinking of making a smaller third one. The button has a solid back with the little loop protruding through to attach to the uniform. The button is rounded, like a pitcher's mound, rather than flat.

    I'm thinking the eagle might be WWI, anyone else ?

    One website I found indicates this may be 1875-1902. The button, I mean.

    I added this token to the database you described; you're right, there is no listing for it, let alone an image. As for my aunt, triple by-pass on Wednesday .

    Re: Not usually jazzed about wheats, but there's more.

    your "general service" button is after the cviil war peroid * ( note the arched point on the sheild top ) they were used during the indain war and spanish american war era 's ( runs from 1875 thru 1902 useage wize ) in 1902 the "great seal type design buttons" were introduced .

    back mark lettering might help refine this "time frame " down by the makers name and lettering used .

    Hi Half Dime,
    At the top of the list, my best wishes for your Aunt to easily recover from the procedure!

    Nice finds, lots of items I've never found. I noticed you are using a White's XLT, would you be willing to share your settings/program? If not that is ok as it takes time to put those things together....63bkpkr
    Out searching w/GMT & friend under my arm
