    C1850 House Hunt - Pendant, ’28 Dog Tag, ’16 CDN LC


    Yesterday I had the opportunity to detect a house for 3hrs that was recently vacated by the tenant. This beautiful c1850 — 55 fieldstone house is slated for demolition later this year by the land developer. The house has been continually occupied for the past 160+ years, so modern trash was plentiful here. The first interesting find was the decorative pendant, based on the design, I’m thinking it dates from 1910 — 20. I also dug a 1916 Canadian LC, a 1928 Dog Tag and several US Wheat and Canadian Pennies from the 1940s. The painted mother and baby figure has a threaded metalcore, but what it was attached to I do not know.

    Thanks very much for looking,
    Dave

    Those are some very nice finds. Glad you were able to save them before the demolition of the home.

    Thanks very much for your post TH, I honestly thought there would've been more to find.
    I'm probably going to head back one more time later this week, I don't want to drive by again in a few weeks and see that it's gone.

    I've been to Nevada 15 times in the past 22 years, but I never had the opportunity to detect there.

    I hear you crash, it hurts my heart to think that developers can't see the value in preserving the local history.
    Just think, all of the amount of labor it took to mortar all of these stones in place.

    Thanks Bill, I'm going back again on Friday morning. I'll move some of the downed branches and grid the front yard better.

    The look of the stonework just oozes history doesn't it.
    The problem is the folks who lived here collected scrap cars, which they stored at the side and back of their property for years.
    Thankfully none of these cars ever made it onto the front yard.

    Here's how the house looked in 2019 and in 2020.

    Very interesting finds! Looks like a variant of Auspice Maria symbol on that pendant. Congrats and good luck on your future hunts!
