    When I popped that play nickel out from 7-8 inches deep and saw it's size and some of the detail I thought I had my first 3 cent silver! Major letdown to say the least but still a cool little coin with some age to it. I don't know about the age of the weathervane but I know it's pretty cool. Thanks for looking and HH.

    Nice weathervane. Good find.
    Everyone has a photographic memory, some are lacking film.

    Amazing what turns up.
    The play coin would be enough some days, but the weather vane is a super find.

    Love the weathervane . first one ive ever seen posted
    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Great find, and the weather vane is probably worth more than any 3 center you would have dug.

    What is the vane made out of think the old ones are made from lead , I found part of a lead one once, they are good finds an intact one is rare to get.

    It's hard to tell what it's made out of but i don't think it's lead or iron. Maybe brass or copper judging by the reading on my AT pro.

    The play coin is from the 50's.. and the weathervane is remarkable.

    The Weather Deal is off the chart & will display well almost anywhere.imo
    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.
