Thread: My best Fur Trade axe and a handful of silver.

    My best Fur Trade axe and a handful of silver.

    Managed to get out two times this week-end despite the unusually hot and humid weather for this time of year. Decided to explore an other area at my newest permission and I believe the time spent was well worth it.

    My best find of the week-end was my biggest and best preserved Fur Trade axe. Discovered it hidden deep in a large pile of rocks which shielded it from the contact with the humid soil, thus the very little accumulation of rust. Makes me wonder who put it there and why he never managed to recover it around 250 years ago.

    The rest of my hunts where pretty uneventful with no old relics other than a late 1700's Hibernia halfpenny that someone made into a button. I did stumble upon a not so old hunting camp of some sort and recover a good number of early to mid 1900's coins with a good amount of silver.

    Very happy with that Trade axe as they are pretty rare where I'm at,especially in this condition.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Wow, that axe is in great shape! Really nice. Good to see all that silver! Cool pendant, too! Congrats.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    That is a "Tree Feller" for sure. Looks to have had a mark at one time but has corroded out. I would give it a nice coating of bees wax. Super find!

    Your religious medal is the "Lady of Lourdes" (France) and celebrates an event that happened in 1917. St. Bernadette is on the front, with Bernadette and the Virgin Mary on the back. Blue enamel. Here are a couple of others. Gary
