    Out chasing dreams with Indian Steve today - unusual find

    Well, I eyeballed a nickel. That was it for coins.

    This was a civil war site which had been pounded for many years. Whole lot of trash & junk. Even dug a Budwiser can 8" deep.

    Then got a good solid signal - one of the very few, and dug this up from about 6" down:

    It is threaded internally. Showed it to Steve and he said "That's a valve stem cover for a Model 'T' "

    So, I go look it up:

    Nice finds and congrats! You solved a mystery for me. I dug one of those valve stem caps the other day and thought it was a screwdriver handle, lol.

    That's it! I came home and immediately Googled that sentence and immediately came up with the link which identified it. Good gracious! Well, he's certainly more studied than I am. I'd have had to ask for an ID on "What is it?"

    First I thought it was a lipstick cover, then saw the internal threads. Then I thought screwdriver handle. So I went over and showed it to Steve. Congratulations on yours as well
