    Silver Trime,Civil War token, more military shakos,buttons and relics

    Did 3 more hunts since my last post, not more than 2-3 hours each time. The heat is too much for me, even in the woods. Had a decent harvest nevertheless with a good variety of early military items, coins and relics.

    Only found three coins and, by funny coincidence, their denominations were of 1,2 and 3 cents.

    My first Union For Ever Civil War token 1864

    A military chain decoration. Not 100% sure of the use but possibly from a Victorian military hat.

    Found a very interesting civilian relic as well. A lead figurine made in form of the boy riding a bicycle. What I found interesting on top of the mid to late 19th century clothes he seems to be wearing is the style of the bike. It has the front wheel equipped with pedals which is slightly larger than the back. This type of the bicycle resembles the 1860's-1870's type called Bone shaker, it was popular in Europe and the US up until early 1870's when it was replaced by the models that look much more like those we see today.

    What a nice variety of finds. I think the 2 center has to be one of the best conditioned ones I've seen posted on here. Congrats.

    Your 1,2,3’s are awesome! Extremely cool CW Token and the 2 is in incredible shape, plus lots of history saved. Must have been a blast digging those signals even in the heat. Congrats
