    Military Shell Casings, Condom Tin, 1901 Shotgun shell, Concha, Silver

    I don't pay too much attention to the shell casings I find but I ran across an area that generated lots of them from the 40's. I usually keep casings in a separate container and scrap them when I get enough of them to make it worth while. These look like 30-06 casings with various head stamps such as LC 42, TW 42, DM 42, FA 32, SL 43 etc. Also found an interesting shotgun shell with a 1901 date. It got me thinking ... am I throwing away valuable pieces of history? Do people collect these fired shell casings? I could see where it could be interesting to have a collection organized by year and ordinance plant. Is scrapping them the best use?

    Found just one coin ... a 1957 quarter. Silver ... sweet. The horse concha is probably modern. I looked up the condom tin on Ebay and they sell for over $20 in good condition. Of course the one I found is junk.

    I wonder if that shotgun shell was really from 1901 or if that's more of a patent date kind of thing. Any ideas?

    That's some good "stuff" right there. Those license tag year tabs sell pretty well, too! Never seen a 12 gauge like that one before either.

    There are guys that collect shotgun head stamps....I send most all of my hundreds to Turtlefoot on here who has put together a really nice site.The 1901 Repeater is a VERY common shell out here....I have dug several hundred of them
    Winchester Shotshell Headstamps

    They used to have copetition Blue Jay hunts here in the early 1900's,and evidently it and solid brass cases were quite popular

    Competition Blue Jay Hunts Sounds Cruel .
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
