    Today's City Park finds; Locked Real Gun, Merc, and Vintage Pin

    I haven't posted in a while. I've been going out quite often finding some decent old coins and such. These days I usually post if I find older silver or something out of the ordinary that I think fellow tnet'ers would find interesting. Today I went to a trashy city park with the sharpshooter coil on the ATP.

    My first cool find was this Elks 56th Annual Reunion Pin July 1920. Manufactured by Robbins Co.

    Next I found my first ever real gun! I'm not sure what kind it is and I didnt take it home. I left it on the surface. No danger since it's locked.

    Make sure leaf clutter is checked carefully as there could be silver mixed in. I didn't have to dig this Merc.

    Thanks for reading and good luck to all on your hunts.

    Cool finds. I’d bet money that gun was stolen.

    Interesting that you found a silver basically on the surface in the woods. I found a couple Rosie’s a couple years ago on the surface in the woods, but they were in a run off/erosion area. The locked gun is an unusual find. Congrats !

    You should have anonymously called the cops and told them where the gun was it could help eliminate a stolen weapon report.

    Nice merc. I can’t believe you left that gun on the surface. I would have called the sheriff. A locked gun probably means a stolen gun and later tossed. I would be interested in why you left the gun.

    Gun was probably stolen or otherwise involved in criminal activity.

    Nice finds!

    Would probably be best to recover the gun and turn it in or at least notify the police.

    Those are some nice finds. I agree with the rest. You wouldnt want to keep the gun, as I'm sure it was stolen, but Police should be notified.

    Call the cops! It's a public service.... And the police will thank you for it, and just might win you some very good will.

    Heard of some really stupid movers in the past,, but leaving the gun in the park has to be a new low!!!!!!!!
    The RIGHT of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed..What part of "WILL NOT BE INFRINGED" Don't you understand?? That means ANY Gun law ever passed is unconstitutional!
