    Thx! I wasnít quite sure what it was. Iíll go back to that spot and see if there any other bits in the hole, spout, etc. It seems pretty small, I wonder if it was a flask for a pistol? Iíve literally found hundreds of shotgun shell head stamps in these woods and a handful of pistol balls, but never a big musket ball.

    Thx Steve! Yeah that 1891 dime doomed me into this obsession. Iíll never forget wiping the dirt away and seeing the design for the first time and imagining the last person to hold that coin. Oh well, every addiction has to start somewhere.... itís been a blast so far. How old do you think the flask is? Any way to date with the simple design? That part of the park probably had occupation as early as late 1700ís early 1800ís.

    Well Thad your addiction, in my opinion, is incurable. You will just have to learn to make the best of it...lol.
    As far as the power flask, they are kinda hard to date, but I would think it's from the black powder percussion period. Roughly 1830s to 1870s. I think yours is at the early part of that period since it resembles the pattern on whiskey flasks from the 1830s/40s.

    100 is a pretty big number...100 silvers is down right magical. Congratulations on a great milestone. I love that you were able to hit that number at the park where it all began. Hope your next 100 comes even faster.

    It all makes sense to me now! Always wondered where your drive came from to hike endless miles and rip through jaggers while braving ticks after hours of map research.....

    First silver a seated! Yeah....that will do it! Haha. Nice finds. Congrats.

    Iím imagining a little boy playing cowboys and indians with the good luck token as his badge of honor. The hole in my example is pretty crude, I bet the kid did it himself.
