    Going through the finds bag

    I was out today with a buddy digging in freshly cut hay fields. During the day I dumped my trash pouch 2 or 3 times, but things that interest me get put in the little side pocket. Anyway, I found what I though was an old advertising pen knife, thought it was cool and put it away. When I got home I was too busy cleaning my new coppers to pay any mind to the little knife............ ANYWAY, it seems to be a piece commemorating the passing of Abraham Lincoln, it has stamped on the handle “ Out lamented President” and American knife company on the other side..... moral of the story: look at your trash 😀

    I had a school made buckle or ? made out of silver in the back of my truck for several months before I decided I'd better look at all the iffy finds before I chuck.
    Also, I had found what I thought was half of a broken clamp for an irrigation line. It laid out in the trash pile on the back porch for a few weeks and when I went to go through all that junk and toss, I found that Half of clamp. It turned out to be a really cool half of a carraige makers badge.
    Cool knife, Joe. Silver next time out for you!

    Very cool knife, congrats!

    I had a bent up little piece of metal I would throw in different places and finally left in the front of the driveway for months. I was cleaning the area for trash day and gave it another look before tossing it into the trash...glad I looked; it was a very well worn TRIME...lol lol

    Those brass handled American Knife pocket knives are definitely CW era and frequently turn up on CW sites. I have one I found amoung a bunch of Spencer casings at a skirmish site in West Virginia.

    That one is extra cool since it commemorates Lincoln's passing and can be accurately dated to 1865.
