    Wild West Finds - Two Bucket Listers Scratched!!

    Found this in a garbage dump from an old mining camp along the side of this dirt road near home. Still in awe. I never expected to find an old General Service button in a place like this, let along three of them! All in great shape. And right next to the Eagle buttons and the Levi button and rivets you see in the photos there, was another first for me, and something Ive always wanted to find: A 10 gauge all brass shotgun shell from UMC. Can anyone put a date on this?

    The old Blue Rival shell was nearby, another first I think, but I find shotgun shells like this all the time. Also found those pearl buttons and a couple of larger rivets, both have some leaf design on them.

    Last but not least is this little square glass thing, which makes me think of China for some reason. I know its old because of where I found it. This old mining camp garbage debris field has not been contaminated with modern junk like many of the other places around here, apart from two or three modern broken bottles along the road, which were probably chucked out the window by people driving down the road. Other than that its all old tin cans, old broken glass shards, including a lot of purple shards mixed in. Square nails and regular nails are all over the place, and I even saw a few pieces of our local O'odham Indian pottery you see all over out here.

    Looks like you found a great relic site. Maybe you need to sift some of that dirt.

    Don't know what the glass square is, but I like it. The button in the dirt is one of the best insitu pictures I've ever seen. Like nature made a display just for you to find.

    Very nice assortment of finds. As has been previously mentioned, a sifter on that site might be a good idea.
    Congratulations on your finds.

    Nice finds, love detecting the desert!!

    I believe that square glass piece was a button, probably from Bohemia/Czechoslovakia.

    Thank you. I was thinking button myself, based on the two square looking "holes" for lack of a better word, you see on it. Someone else here at home also suggested a button, and I did find those pearl shell buttons you see in my photo right nearby (Within a few feet)
