    Early 1900's change purse...with change!

    Good evening T-Net nation. I hope that everyone had a relaxing holiday.

    I had a very brief window of time to do some detecting this afternoon before dark, so I headed to a nearby wooded park. My first signal was an odd mid-tone, that danced around a little bit, and would occasionally sound more like a high tone. If it hadn't been my first decent signal of the hunt, I might have passed on it. Turns out it was the decayed remainders of a change purse, which held four Barber dimes and a rosary. One of the dimes is actually adhered to the frame of the purse. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

    This is most likely my last hunt for 2019. Best of luck to everyone in 2020!

    What a find. Congrats that 1910 is a stunner. What are the cut glass looking objects? Are they adhered to the roseary?

    Canít help but wonder if the barber dime was laying against a penny. The green stain around the edges sure looks like it may have been!

    3 more days to take advantage of the decent weather and thawed ground- go back and grab an even older purse! Seriously, great find man, we're pretty blessed to be Mass hunters..
