    More Park Finds, 121 F collar disc, (silver?) Locket, Aussie penny.

    Hey everyone, went back to the park today and dug every signal. Found 2 mason jar lids with jagged glass rims inside and a hunting arrow, good reminder why I wear gloves.

    I saw GEORGIVS and my heart started racing, then I saw the kangaroo on the other side. 1943 Australian penny, still better than a stinkin lincoln. Does anyone know about the 121 F collar disc? A quick google comes up with nothing relevant. Not quite sure what the little lead object is, it has a seam but is way off round. The locket appears to be marked but I can't make out what it says. Looks like maybe pewter?

    From Wiki. :
    The 121st Infantry Regiment is an infantry regiment of the Georgia National Guard that saw combat service in the First and Second World Wars. As a result of army-wide reorganization in the 1950s, the 121st Infantry ceased to exist as a tactical unit. Today, some units of the Georgia National Guard trace their lineage to the 121st Infantry.

    Thanks! I was searching for division, not regiment, must be why I was coming up with nothing. That makes sense because I did find it in Ga.

    You know I would be bummed too that it wasn't an older coin but you are certainly right it's better than a Lincoln memorial!!! I found one from that time period from south Africa.

    I wanted to add an edit saying that I figured out what the stemmed off round lead object is, a bell knocker!

    or maybe the round lead is a jig head , any trace of iron eyelet or hook?

    I don't think bell clappers were made of lead , it would give a dull thud sound instead of the ringing sound we know of.

    So, I think your locket has a middle hallmark which is a lion facing left which is a hallmark for sterling silver!!
    Good Luck to All!
