    Spoons and a minie ball

    Long hunt today in a Baltimore County park that I had never detected. Best finds are three pieces of silver, two of which are spoons (Steiff), 4 wheats, a Westinghouse Golden Jubilee token (1936), a Hormel good luck token, and, surprisingly, what appears to be a fired .58 cal minie ball. It weighs just over 500 grains, has the right patina and markings, so I'm calling it the real deal.

    Plenty of cool tokens and relics...and it looks like those spoons are silver and not plated. Nice hunt!

    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    You are correct, Nick. Spoons are sterling and made by Steiff in Baltimore.

    Thanks Randy. The Equinox 600 with stock coil was hearing targets down a foot today. Most targets were deep.

    Let just say that I had a very lucky first time there. Went back for a two hours this week and got clad and a wheat.
    It is an interesting place that shows obvious evidence of past trash pits.
