    Another token and a relic or two

    It was get up early and get out before the humid weather hit, and did it ever 86F feeling like 104F and for around here it might as well be -40 because it's not nice to be outdoors. So a few hours of digging in the nails, lost my magnet 10'x10' area must of left it in a hole. Anyways I did manage a 1844 Half Penny Token that is taking a bath right now and a few other items. The double bent flat stock I was thinking might be a kettle/pot hanger over the fire? Couple of spoon parts, another fork piece, and a Twoonie! There's just too many different sized square nails in this world.

    I'm always digging just a few Inches From Insanity!

    Rule 1: It's not what you have but what you do with what you have.
    Rule 2: Buy the best. (it makes rule #1 a lot easier)

    Most of the tokens were struck by private mints in Britain, there was the 3 in the USA, and a couple in Ireland.

    There might be a few in there, it was just a quick dump and a photo as it was just too hot to look at them closely. I'm not sure if they were making them in the 1830's still. Oh ya Sutphin don't get too excited it was only a Half Penny Token

    I think the hanger will be repurposed for hanging my coat up in the shop, or something along those lines. Square nails, and the variety that can come out of one hole makes me wonder if there was a fire/fire pit, or where the wood was piled up and rotted away. I do know this one structure was torn down in the 1930's so it had been up for a 100 yrs.

    It would make sense if boards where piled up nails would be in a tight area. If they were in a fire would there be an ashy or sooty substance on the nails along with the rust? Kinda like when you dig a pit and there's a blackened layer in the soil.

    Nice finds buddy, the kettle/pot hanger is an interesting piece!
    The 1844 Half Penny turned out very nice following your restoration!

    Thanks again for meeting up yesterday.

    Thanks Dave
    It sure has been a longtime since I dug on grass, I'm thinking fields and bush is easier, and less goose bombs laying around.
