    S'more Goodies

    Who doesn't like to find gold, silver, and cool relics all in the same day?
    I have a unique fast paced style and don't spend too much time on any one place. Today 3 places yielded a gold graduation tassel from '72, my first silver half dollar, and this heart bridle rosette.

    I know the buckle covers that match were not made till after the civil war but don't really know if there is any way to date this piece.

    Thanks for looking

    I contacted the local civil war park and got it confirmed that the Rosette could indeed be a civil war era piece unlike the buckle covers of the same design that were invented after the war.

    Rather than start another new thread I'll just carry on with my latest "Goodies".

    Earlier this week I stopped at a city park to let my kids play and see if there was anything good to be found. After passing up a few weak chatters I hit a decent tone and my very first hole produced this beautiful ring.

    Yesterday I hit a couple of old houses and found a couple of wheats, a piece I believe is from an old hand crank armature, a .38 rimfire cartrige, and my 4th Indian head penny.

    If anyone knows anything about the .38 cartridge I'd appreciate the info.

    Today I took my kiddos to a park to play an found myself in a corner digging up an old trash (or burn) pile, when I found my first ever Sterling silver fork. As you can imagine I got all excited and started digging everything in that pile till my pouch was getting pretty full, then bam up comes a second one. It was an awesome day at the park.

    Found a place on the lake to hunt for a bit and found a target with a really confusing tone but high tone, I was thinking possible ring, and found my first bi-metal Mexican coin.
