    silver-plated WMRogers spoon. wish i knew how old it is.
    edit: it appears to be a 1938 "Pickwick" design, but from all the pics i've seen, the company stamp style does not match mine...

    i feel like i learn my machine just a tad more each day. i love it. although, my yard is so full of trash that i could dig a hole every 6 inches, so i try and distinguish the stronger or more valuable sounds. i do have discrimination off so i can hear everything. there hasnt been a hole i havent found something in, so i got that going for me. lol. if you've read this far, thanks for joining me! HH!

    That's what it's about! All those lil treasures! Each are significant! The more you learn your machine
    the more you'll find.

    Keep finding and sharing!

    You're doing it right. Dig it all, especially when you are learning a new detector. Pay attention for the weak sounds though, that;s often the best stuff. And keep posting your finds!

    Don't ever worry about your finds not being good enough. This is how you learn. And the other part of that is sometimes a good find might not look like much but someone on here with experience can let you know that you have found something interesting. The spoon maker was in business from 1801-1973 but I'm sure you can narrow it down if you look up that specific mark. They usually changed em up every so often. The navy piece is a nice looking find.
    Now for the good part. It's obvious that you don't try to cherry pick and you dig all of the signals. This is going to pay off in a big way some day. Lots of great finds can give an iffy signal or a low vdi number. Tombac buttons and pewter buttons just as a couple of examples. So keep doing what you're doing and keep showing us what you find. If anybody doesn't like it they don't have to look. Good luck out there

    Yes.....keep up the good work (I mean FUN).........and continue to post your finds......it will help others, new to the hobby what to expect while learning their machine and enjoying this great hobby.......Also, it looks like the small USN pin/charm is sterling....are there any markings on the reverse, like .925 or the word sterling?
    ......maybe you have found your first silver item....Good Luck.
