    The Sun Shined On Me Today

    Even though it was very cloudy and cool as my buddies say "The sun shined on me this time". I went to a well hunted home site with a friend and the Deus sniffed out some overlooked stuff among the trash. My first find was the 1899 S half dollar. I almost passed it up because it rang up as a 96 on my detector and that is in the iron range. But, the crisp signal made me decide to dig it and I am glad I did. If I hadn't I would have moved out of the area and not recovered the second target, an 1856 O half dime. They were my best finds of the day. I also found a sterling silver belt tip made by Keyston Bros. San Francisco and could use a little help on dating it. I am thinking 1900-1950 but would like to narrow it down. The other three coins are a 63 memorial, 41 wheat and 61 nickel.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    It’s true that the sun don’t shine on same dogs tail everyday. But, I’m glad to see that today was yours! I actually thought that site was hunted out. Good job on proving me wrong. BTW, I think that your one half dime ahead of me now with that one that you found today.

    I thought it was pretty well gone over myself. But, you and Kevin still have the best site to hunt! If you had rechecked one of your holes you would be one ahead of me!

    True. But! That was a dime best I recall. Not a half dime. Either way, it was a lesson learned.

    I think your belt tip is closer to mid century than early 1900's - based on the font on the reverse , and overall design style . Nice finds !
