    Silver Horsey

    I’ve not been able to get out in a couple of weeks. The weather was supposed to be rainy today, but instead it was just overcast, and it was 70 degrees, so I just had to slip out.

    I was digging the usual, can slaw and pull tabs, I got one of those mid tones that just says tinfoil, you know, hot dog wrapper, however I was surprised to see a little silver tag in the hole. It was smooth and tarnished, so I knew it had to be good.

    Sure enough, it has “Ann” engraved on it.

    This was not a good signal at all, however, I was digging all the signals, so it didn’t really matter. As soon as it came out, I took this pic.

    Then I knocked the dirt out of the back, and you could see the smoothness and grey tarnish. Bingo.

    A quick wipe revealed a silver horsey pin.

    One bad signal can make the hunt a success.

    I got a few coins, but not what I was looking for, here is a pic of the kind of stuff I find, lead phone pole tag, broken base from a toy soldier, CB radio tag and a Joe Friday toy badge.

    Good digs Tom. I bet you're glad Ann told her boyfriend the Heck with you and the Silver Horse you rode in on.

    Congrats on pulling a couple silvers Tom. I'm partial to the badge, they are enjoyable to dig, takes you back to simpler times.

    very cool history plus a silver horse to top it off. that should have put a smile on your face Tom. those iffy signals can turn out pretty nice sometimes.
