    More great finds this weekend...

    Did about five hours on this field over the weekend, it is a flood zone, stream at the end of the field. I figured there would be a lot of trash but, there was very little trash and many finds.

    The surface finds, a few pieces of glass beads, glass button, an intact clay pipe bowl and my first, an odd seal made of glass, and a styles that could have been for writing.

    A torso, two religious pendants and five buttons, two of the buttons look to be military.

    Relics, upper right is an intact crotal bell, below is a broken bell.

    More relics, a small army wagon made in England, a silver utensil handle marked .800.

    Found several interesting lead finds.

    More lead, cool Carp fish in the middle, upper right is a clay marble and not a musket ball.

    25 coins, oldest was an 1800 and average was 1875.

    Learn by my mistake. I found this coin folded in half earlier this week, tried to clean it today and bent it open just for a little peak. Well it let go and I nearly broke it in two. I should have heated it first. It is a 1667 silver coin, OUCH!

    Reverse of the 1667 silver, date at the bottom. Sorry about the vague explanations of the finds. HH, Mike

    And my puppy dogs, a Husky (Cordie) and a Collie German Shepard mix (Rex), I call them both Hound Dog and they always come, LOL!

    The Glass seal went on a wine bottle 18th century ish.

    The Crotal Bell is fish scale pattern which is one of the earliest & rarist types.

    You had a great weekend.

    It's impossible to resist trying to bend things back into shape. I love the fish!


    Nice work!

    Could the bent coin have been a love token?
    I have heard that when lovers were apart one would give the other a bent coin.
    Great finds.....

    Thanks all! Viper, that is a lead soldier broke in half. I'll be out of the loop for a few days as I am apartment hunting and detecting fields in between. HH, Mike
