    It's sad to think, but this may very well be the case Mark.
    The soil here didn't produce anything really old which would reflect the age of the house, so everything old must be deeper.
    Thanks for your post,
    Dave

    Thank you so much for the suggestion about the pendant I found Anton, I was wondering if this design had a name or if it was just random.
    So, I'm now wondering if it might have a religious reference, as opposed to just being decorative?
    I think I'm going to post this piece in the What is It forum to get some other opinions.

    Our government here in Ontario has just put us in our 4th lock-down with a stay-at-home order for the next 28 days, sounds like a good opportunity to detect to me.
    Hope things are going well for you all in Quebec,
    Dave

    Thanks for your post and for your compliment Steve.
    I restore my non-ferrous finds with a fine brass wire wheel on my bench polisher. I then use Conservators Wax to seal the surface and a buffing wheel to lightly polish the piece.
    The surface of the piece will naturally darken again over time to a light brown color.

    I always like looking at the before and after pics.

    It would be a sin to take that house down.

    Thanks for your post Bart.
    I love digging early toys as well, but finding a plastic tank from the 1980s wouldn't be my first choice.
    Hope you and your family are doing well these days,
    Dave

    I hear you my friend, it's definitely a tragedy when history like this can be saved.
    The problem here in Ontario is, there are very few laws preventing developers from simply pulling these buildings down to make way for development.
    What we need is to have laws with incentives put in place for developers to restore these buildings, then to be able to resell them for a profit to folks who appreciate history like myself.
    Best of luck to you in MA,
    Dave

    Dave, wow good haul for 3 hours! Wonder what another 3 hours would yield? You've spoiled us with another great write up & pics. Some developers incorporate old homes into new subdivisions where I live. Wouldn't hurt to suggest that to them.

    I'm planning on heading back on Sunday morning for another shot at it, but this time I'll grid more slowly in the opposite direction.
    There's also a foundation of a c1850-60 house in the woods that has recently been cleared by the developer, I tried to detect it last fall but there was too much foliage on the ground.
    Your suggestion regarding "developers incorporate old homes into new subdivisions" is exactly what should happen, but probably never will... two words 'government politics'.

    Dave, you read my mind about swinging more slowly in the opposite direction. Heck, if you have time, also try along diagonals. GOOD LUCK

    Yes, most old homes get the wrecking ball. The owners of two in my area have denied my request to detect there, despite my offering to provide a signed injury waiver. Such a shame to loose that history before we have a chance to preserve it.

    That's so disappointing when you're denied permission to a property where the house is going to be demolished anyway. When I do approach a homeowner, which is rarely, I'll offer to give them any gold or silver jewelry I recover. I usually tell them that I'll give them everything I find, all I'd like to keep is any coins to help pay for my batteries. The mention of giving them any gold or silver jewelry usually wins them over... and I don't use batteries, I run a Deus, but they don't know that.
