    Green acres is the place to be. Farm metal is the life for me.

    I hit the farm after work again today. I concentrated up by the house & the backyard this time. Found an assortment of goods.
    *Toy gun & a toy gun barrel.
    *A small round heavy brush looking thingy with sharp pointed metal bristles. Any idea on what this is?
    *Some aluminum clips. I keep finding these. Are they clothes pins?
    *A broken up toy Cadillac. (1940's or 50's?)
    *Shotgun shell piece (Remington).
    *A small metal mystery item (pictured).
    I finally found a few coins by the driveway. A 1969 penny and a 1992 nickel. Big whoop, huh.
    It was getting dark, so I decided to quickly hit the area where I found the CW era buttons and bullet.
    *I found another small button (pictured), but am not sure of the age. Any idea?
    All in all a fun dig. Sorry for the dirty fingers.
    Any help IDing some of these things would big a big help.
    Thanks & HH,
    MM

    Thanks Jim. Seems like they lost as many buttons as they did bullets back then. Maybe they were firing buttons too?

    Im still waiting for you to REALLy dig out that privvy. I remember that you found a sweet looking med bottle inside the house in-between a wall and Im just certain that there are a bunch of wonderful bottles laying at the bottom of that hole. Good to see that you are covering the area well though,keep hitting around that driveway as old as that place is there must be some wonderful coins buried around there,HH...Shoot

    I respectfully disagree. It's actually a frog...a device placed in the bottom of vases and into which flower stems were pushed so that they would stay in place...for flower arrangements.

    Re: Green acres is the place to be. Farm metal is the life for me.

    I live in a old farm house and I don't detect here because the farmer left a trail of wire wherever he went. It really p#$$#$ me off to dig up crazy twisted wire all afternoon. When we moved here I was 19 and made my husband drag the outhouse down by the river with a uniloader sp? and I'm still wishin I had left it there every time I see it. I'm getting inspired to dig up the dirt where it was but when I dig there I get grossed out cause the dirt is black and all powdery!

    Shootist,
    That privy you're thinking of is actually at the other property that I hit on weekends. It is where I found the old 1900 bottle hidden in the wall. I've been dying to dig out that privy all week ever since I watched them find all those bottles on the "Cash & Treasures" show. I'll keep you posted. My shovels are ready to roll.
    Have a good w/end.

    Thanks TT.
    I would of never guessed that one.
    By the way, the bottle opener you had asked about was so rusty & crusty, I couldn't make out any writting except a letter "S" at the end of a word. Sorry.
