    MORE MILITARY SILVER!!!!

    My camera took a dump a month ago, been dying to show all of you my coolest find ever!!! So this past Memorial Day I hit a new permission in the old part of Ft. Myers, property that used to be owned by Thomas Edison and his winter estate. The house was built in the 1930's. I did find a few wheats, 3 silvers, a Wash, Rosie and a Merc.. Just as I was going to call it a day, I beeped under a tree adjacent to the neighbors house, and got a sweet hit, max depth, solid bing-bing on the ACE 350... and then this little honey spread her wings.

    A bit of research reveals this to be WW2 Bombadier Wings. 3 inches long, with intact pin on the reverse. Marked on the back "Gemsco Sterling" No other distinguishing marks...

    How cool is that !!!

    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. D.

    That Said, I judge No Man.
