    Thimble looks silver, is it? I've often thought about hunting old orchards....

    i'm confident it is aluminum. it took some work to remove enough dirt to read it.
    I think if silver it would have Rubbed off without water.

    Apple orchards may be worthwhile.
    years ago I used to help out at the local Orchard Picking Apples in the fall.
    one of the pickers told me he lost a Watch while picking.
    the Orchard owner would have nothing of detecting.
    I guess fear of damage to roots

    and would probably hold Many Watches, Bracelets & Even Rings,
    as the early Morning Dew in the fall made hands very Slimy
    picking apples. & whole Families used to show up To pick apples for the Orchard
    at $5.00 a crate.

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.
    Congratz on what looks to have been a fun hunt! I'm still looking for my first thimble. I can't wait to see one in the hole!

    I bet there is deep treasure there. I imagine that there was some dirt moved around when the trees were removed. I always enjoy your posts and the pics to include the history of the location and some finds. I found one of the thimbles here in Ohio, we are only 50 minutes SW of Cleveland.

    Enjoy the weather while it lasts.

    Glad you got out. Being a peach tree grove I would have figured more people would have dropped stuff eating peaches in the shade. Seeing snow is a scary thing but hopefully we'll have a more mild winter up here.

    Cheers

    Nice job. I bet there was some gambling going in those orchards, like coin flipping. I have seen care takers of Christmas tree fields doing that.
