    First hunt in a looong time ,silver cross ,token , couple 44s

    Finally got out to look for a little treasure ,put some batteries in the machine and headed for an old favorite spot with ruins of miners cabins and swung for about an hour and a half . The Silver cross & Clarkes token were in the same hole with the token on top . Also got a couple WRA 44 cartridges, an old Copenhagen lid and a pile of nails. It just felt good to be out ! and I got to bring home a couple of goodies !! Spring is in the Rockies !

    Nice token, it sure is nice to get out! It seemed like a long winter. We are going to have a little snow in the morning but at least the ground is thawed, and it will melt fast!

    Very nice Pikes Peak!

    Like Squirell the token intrigues me. I'd love to know a date on that. We had a distillery here during the prohibition era. They distilled white alcohol for some kind of government purpose. I once heard torpedo fuel but not sure.

    Arg, I will post a pic of it cleaned , but it is brass not silver ,around here our brass is almost always green , the black fooled me, it did have a loop on top at one time.
