    1893 columbian exposition find

    Hello all I went back to a site where I had found a 174? george the II hibernian half penny. I admit I had dreams of pine tree shillings and flowing haired beauties popping right of the ground. well a 1 hour car ride and 4 hours of detecting got me a pocket full of relics plated spoon, butter knife an interesting button and a columbian expo complimentary watch fob from the keystone watch cover co. I thought it was an old dog licsense until i cleaned it up. I gave it to kenb to go with the silver half dollar he has from the same expo. Pics will be posted tomorrow hh to all

    Nice find! Something like this? The bottom edge is designed for use in opening watch cases.

    That is a really nice find! I read a book about the exposition a year or two ago and it was very interesting.

    Did not know the truth
    And one of his tools was destroyed

    Sounded like a good adventure trip though. I like the watch opener thingy.

    I have one of those columbian expo silver half dollars too. The fob looks cool. Sounds like it was worth the trip.
