    Two Sites in Three Hours!


    I had to wait a couple of hours to get out this morning due to heavy rain. When the rain finally let up, I decided to head back to a site that I last detected in 2012. The c1870 ‘H. Dearborn’ farmhouse was recently demolished to make way for new home construction. My first interesting find here was a Fillis design iron horse stirrup.

    “Fillis: A design with a heavy tread, and branches that rise to the eye in a rounded triangular shape. Stirrups used on English saddles are usually made of metal. Though called "irons," they are no longer made of iron, as a rule, but instead stainless steel is the metal of choice, due to its strength, though when weight is an issue, such as for a jockey, they may also be made of aluminum. Inexpensive stirrups may be made of nickel, which can easily bend or break and should be avoided. Stirrups may also be made of synthetic materials and various metallic alloys. There are many variations on the standard stirrup design, most claiming to either be safer in the event of a fall or to make it easier for a rider to maintain a proper foot and leg position.”

    My only other find of interest here was a hand inscribed copper tag with the word ‘CARROTS’ on it. Maybe a name tag from an early vegetable garden?
    I then returned to the woollen mill site where I detected last weekend. I finally found my first coin here today, an 1855 Five Centimes ‘French’ coin.
    I also found an oil lamp collar and a piece of ‘mystery brass’.

    Thanks very much for looking!
    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.

    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

    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.

    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
