    Slow, Low & Low

    Made it out for a couple lunch hunt hikes this week to old pounded farmsteads cellars in the park.

    This was my only clear signal. Sounded like a no doubt wheat. Always fun to have an 1800ís date on a medallion, not sure about the YPCU?

    The rest of the finds are with my low to the ground, low power, very slow swing strategy.

    This IHP sounded like a scratchy silver quarter, 31-21, but when out of the ground solid 18.

    The floral button another tiny 9 signal.

    Good luck out there!

    Nice handful Thad. The military button is not a "Great Seal". They came out in 1902. Yours is earlier and it is a staff officers button, probably CW era, but possibly post war as well. If you can make out the back mark that would help, but looks like that may be tough.

    Haha I just noticed they spelled Pittsburgh with the H on your medallion, even though by the date on it they should have dropped the H.

    Thx Steve! It is always cool to unveil another clue at an old site, potential CW button in Pittsburgh or Pittsburg is rare for me, only my 3rd.

    It's OK, It's OK, I've gotten used to being humbled! Congrats and great hunt Pa-dirt!

    What's your take on the button/disc with the morning glories on it? Nothing like a little Belladonna!

    Enjoy and best wishes!

    I think it is the front of a 2 piece button, backside rusted/fell off. Some ornate relics have come out from this cellar hole. Personal elements such as this button or the gilded hat pin Steve found on Sunday are a nice change of pace from the typical horse tack. But as far as any specific meaning to the floral pattern, IDK?

    That is a cool medallion. I must have missed finding that back in the 70s living in WPA.... grin. That 913 might have been a coal mine board check. Shows on the board if your in the mine.
