    Thanks Bob, hopefully I'll get onto an area with more activity this weekend.
    Dave




    Thanks for your interest and post Jesse.
    I too have found a couple of these stirrups over the years.
    But the condition on this example is exceptional, so I decided to find out a bit more about it.
    I'm also going to tumble it this winter to preserve it.
    Dave





    Thank you Yak.
    I see that you're a Canadian ex-patriot, hope things are going well for you down in Ringgold, GA.
    Dave





    Thank you for your post my friend, hope you're keeping warm in the Niagara region these days.
    I was in your beautiful city two weeks ago on business... I'd like to take this moment to thank the Fallsview Casino for my latest win!

    Hope you're still able to get out detecting these days,
    Dave





    Thanks Phil
    It felt great to finally make a coin find at this site, hope to get back again on Sunday.
    Dave




    Thank you for your post gold boy!
    I've visited your state a number of times, although I've never swung a coil there.
    I just love Fort Worth and the cattle drive they reenact on the main street.
    Dave






    I think it's funny that you're the only one who's mentioned that piece Cru.
    It's definilty one of the most personal finds I've made recently.
    I also think it's amazing that someone actually went to the trouble of making a copper tag for their vegetable garden.

    I'd sure like to know how old it is?

    Hope you and your Dad are both well,
    Dave

    PS. I love these two slogans of yours...

    "We can not understand ourselves unless we understand our HISTORY."
    Tough one to date the closest I've had was a lead plaque from a garden with the name of a type of rose & it was a 19th C piece.

    Thanks for the info Cru.
    I don't get the feeling this tag is very old, maybe from the 1920s.

    Temp is -7c and snowing here this morning, I think detecting might be done for the year.

    You grave robber, I'm pretty sure that Carrots was the name of the families pet rabbit!?!

    Great finds my friend, I'm pleased to see that you finally found some coins at that site.

    I doubt that I will be able to detect up near me until the spring now, but it looks like you could squeeze in a hunt or two if your weather holds.

    Happy hunting.

    Thanks for your post John, great to hear from you buddy!
    As you know the weather here in Southern Ontario has been a roller coaster since November.
    Sorry to hear you're frozen in for the year now.

    I'm off work now until Jan. 3 but we're hotel bound on Tuesday until Jan. 4 because of a water leak in the upstairs bathroom and subsequent living room ceiling collapse last week.

    I'll will be back at this site tomorrow morning and at another close by.
    If you have a chance, pick up a copy of the January issue of Western Eastern Treasures Magazine, I have an article in it on the stuff I found at the old school site last fall.

    May you and your family have a peaceful Christmas John.
    Dave

    Thanks for your post Brad.
    When the French coin first popped up all I saw was an Eagle, so I immediately got excited thinking it was an early American coin or token.
    I'm heading back again this morning. I'm also going to look for another site down the road that was affiliated with The Empire Mill on the the next creek over.
    This mill was much bigger and had a much longer history of operation.

    The Empire Woollen Mill – Columbus, Ontario

    West of the Village of Columbus, Ontario on a branch of the Oshawa Creek at the SE corner of Thornton Rd. and Columbus Rd. existed the largest mill in the entire area. Here, in 1835, the impressive, four-storey woollen mills of Mathewson and Ratcliffe were operated by a crew of 50, which was much larger than the other mills that dotted the landscape. Men were brought in from northern England to work the mill. They resided in a boarding home and small cottages. In 1850 the company was sold to the Empire Mills Company. The area grew into a village that had a church, a store, a school, wooden sidewalks and by 1883, an electrical lighting system powered by the mill dam. It may have been the first of its kind in the entire area. When a major railway was built well west near Markham, Ontario the company moved. The old mill struggled under new ownership until 1890 when a flood washed out the dam. It was never rebuilt and the village died. A few old century homes survive; 2 cemeteries from the area survive: the Dryden Baptist Cemetery and St. Paul's Anglican Cemetery.

    As always, Dave, a wonderful post.. I love the detail you put into the posts you make.. They
    bring history alive, as it were..The stirrup does it for me of course.. but being a farmer, that
    would be expected, I guess.

    I am looking forward to seeing what more you can find and post

    Best you you my friend

    Thank you Micheal, as always it's great to hear from you!
    Sounds like you're getting out swinging in your area these days as well.

    Thankfully the next two weeks here look to be above freezing, so I'm hoping to get out a few more times now that I'm off work until Jan. 3
    I'll tumble the stirrup this winter, I expect that it will clean up nicely too.

    May you and your family have a peaceful Christmas my friend,
    Dave

    I too love finding anything personalized.
    Of course, I'd much rather it have found a love token made from an early silver coin... in this case 'carrots' trump silver!

    Thanks for your post creskol,

    Dave that sucks to hear about the water leak, what a terrible time of the year for that to happen!

    That looks like drywall over a slat ceiling which should make it a bit easier to fix than a plaster ceiling, but still a mess.

    Thanks for your post John, it's nice to hear from you.
    Yeah, it's a mess alright, but that's why we have insurance right.

    I had the restoration company in yesterday and the tile company will be coming in today to do their estimate for the insurance company.
    It looks as if the work isn't going to begin until after January 2, so we're going to be living out of a hotel room for a while yet.

    Hope you and your family have a great Christmas,
    Dave
