    Colonial Wax seal, War of 1812 US button. A few early coppers and relics.

    Had a great couple of hunts on the week-end and finally managed to find time to write a post. Found not one but two bucket lister items, both in a very good shape.

    A colonial wax seal has eluded me for a few years. Super happy with this one and glad that the fragile glass or crystal part was undamaged.

    Strangely, found a piece from an other seal the next day on a hunt in a completely different area.

    An other interesting item was what I believe to be US Patriotic saddle shield from Civil War period. Unfortunately couldn't find much online.

    That colonial wax seal is so cool. Those don't come up too often. I would be so psyched to find one of those and to have the glass in it and intact is even better! I wonder if you could figure out who it belonged to? That would be quite a feat! Congrats! Those coins are so nice! The harp token is a beauty! That ships coin is great too. I know they show up in my area as well but I've not encountered one yet.

    Great stuff there. Congrats on the bucket listers. You have a great variety of early tokens in Canada. The pewter US infantry button is in amazing shape. The couple that I have found have been pretty rough.
