    Corn field and City

    Out to a corn field yesterday afternoon with lots of bits and pieces showing up; the two most interesting are this plated copper plate and a one-inch diameter lead disk with two holes.

ID:	1789481 Thought the lead piece may be a hem weight but a fellow digger has identified it as the spinning piece to a whirligig ( age unknown)

    Out today to Druid Hill Park (in Baltimore City) for an hour and a half on a spring-like afternoon and along with 3 wheats dug these 3 Indians.

    Looks like some nice finds McCdig. Your lead piece with 2 holes is also known as a "Whizzer Toy". I have found a few of those made out of coins from the 1890's.

    Nice finds. I usually hear of those being called "Whizzers" could be pretty old. I really want to find one of those. Once in awhile people find those made out of large cents. That would be pretty cool: two artifacts in one!

    Those Indian Heads are great, especially the 1890; the "Liberty" in the headband is so clear. Congrats on some nice finds!

    Good job man!
    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.
