    Indian Trade Silver "Luckenbooth"

    I'm really starting to like the Minelab Equinox 800. I've been going back to a site I thought I cleaned out, and although the signals are getting scarce, I'm squeaking out some buttons and other relics from the iron patches. It also helped that I was equipped with hedge trimmers to get into the briars!

    My second signal of the day was a solid 12 on the "Nox", using the Field 2 program at a sensitivity of 23, and out of the ground came colonial silver! It's a shame that it's broken, but I'm optimistic about finding the other half. After all, the pictured rosette button is the 5th matching one from the site!

    Nice finds. I have experienced the heartbreak of a broken Luckenbooth, but I would not go as far as to call one Indian Trade Silver unless it came off an Indian related site, such as a Indian trader site or village. Mine came from a 1780/90 house site in western PA and has engraving.
