    Found a lot of old lead this past weekend......

    Hunting some Hut sites this past weekend, found a lot of melted lead. One piece in particular is huge.

    Way to much digging, but those pieces of led sounded so good, I had to dig them.

    Nice finds. Looks like you had a great weekend.
    What are the brown looking disks?
    Did you clean those eagle buttons, and if so, what did you use.?
    Thanks
    Another day older and deeper in debt.

    I am told the "brown disks" are iron buttons. I have been told to use Ammonia to clean the Eagle Buttons. I just use a cue tip and dip it in the Ammonia and brush it over the button, does a great job especially if there is still some gold left on the button.

    Good to see you got a few nice "drops" Before they were melted, bet that newer pin-pointer got a-lot of use.
    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.
