    2 relics today at the farm

    Got out early to the farm today and hunted a grassy area that is kept mowed.

    This is near where I dug the cuff button on Wednesday.

    Pretty silent of good signals but lots of iron; may have been a building here.

    Used the Equinox 600 in Park 2 with manual ground balance and sensitivity at 21.

    Finally got a solid signal that was jumping up into the 20s and it was down 7 inches.

    At first I thought it to be coin or button. It is the size of a half dollar, brass and has a square hole in the center.
    I have no idea what this is.

    I kept gridding this short hillside and ran into some heavy iron concentration. Near the top I got a consistent 12/13 and found this shield nickel at 3.5 inches, about two inches higher than a square nail. Amazingly the date is intact and looks to be 1869.

    Had to bale after 2 hours as duty called, but it was fun while it lasted.

    Cheers!

    The top piece is part of a 19th century drawer pull for a chest of drawers. It would be next to the wood and the screw went through it and a pull handle attached to it.

    Thanks smokey! Appreciate you elucidating my relic find. I concur; though it is plain I believe I've dug at least one other decorative plate with a square hole.

    Thanks "D"! Ground where I was digging these is rocky and clay-like, not much in the way of top soil. A little rain (doesn't look like it's comin' our way) would be welcome.

    Thanks BLK HOLE! Went back after work yesterday and dug a huge horse shoe, a partial shoe, some square nails, a shotgun shell base that looked the part of a flat button. Anyway, tons of iron here making finding a quiet spot to ground balance difficult.

    Thanks Tommy! It was a 12, so right number for a nickel with the Equinox.
