    Sunday Field Monday Hill Hunts.

    Howdy Folks. I'll dig anything. Preferably coins, jewelry, and valuable things but, I am really after old stuff. Today I hit the sand box field and tried to slow down my swing a bit. It worked as I was able to snag a few cool old relics in areas I have covered several times. I scored another axe head, wedge, "hoe", and some hook thingy for my iron presentation. Much more just filled my trunk. I got a few more horse tack rivets, a very nice green patina valve, some "points" for an old car?, head stamp brass, and these skinny little brass tubes I have bee finding in this field. I did manage a lonely and crusty 1903 Indian Head Cent. At the end of the day I got a weird looking round lead "seal" or something. I thought it was a Roman coin! LOL! Had fun and finished off another weekend well spent. Thanks for stopping by. Kurios1

    Howdy Again Folks. I misplaced my post last night and combined Sunday with today's short afternoon session. Got a few more old relics. Adios. Not sure if the pictures are showing up from my hack job copy and paste?!?

    Nice assortment of finds Kurios1. I have found a bunch of "spigots" - you will be surprised how nicely they clean up. Many are made of brass and look great when cleaned up. Thanks for sharing...

    Thanks Mr. Gordon. It's not the $$$ value that stirs me up as much as the target's age and historic relevance. Even old rusty stuff is cool to me. Beer cans, pull tabs, and zincs can all go to HADES!

    Much appreciated sir. I enjoy the pursuit of old stuff. Usually not overly impressive but, I try to recover interesting things and provide some examples of finds to some of the newer folks in detecting. Adios.

    I love old brass items when they present themselves with that aged green patina. Love the little spigot thingy. Thanks buddy.

    Lovely old greenness makes me happy. Folks keep telling me silver is just around the corner on this sight? I've managed two silver dimes in nine years here. A Rosie and my oldest US silver @ 1849 O Seated Dime. Darn happy with the latter one but, would love to meet her sisters, mother, and granny!

    Ah it seems that the silvers aren't readily available at some homesteads. I have detected a few Quaker homesteads and now we're talking no coinage, very tight purse strings it seemed.
    But what's great is when one pops up in the soils its kind of special.

    Until I began metal detecting I never really thought about coins much. After I started popping up smooth green Indian Head Cents with amazing details I knew I had found my favorite US minted coin design. Don't get me wrong, I love old silver coins for sure. Just something about the transformation that creates a beautiful green patina on a copper that mystifies me.
