    Gold, Gold, Possible Gold, Bone and Possible Ivory and All at Work! Gold Stolen!

    Working in the Burnt out 1810 house today, I found
    a loose brick. I pulled it out expecting to find nothing,
    But, to my surprise, there was a cool looking iron key.
    Well, that got me going. I started looking everywhere for
    any kind of hiding places.
    Then I saw one board on the old floor that was shorter than
    the rest and worn on one edge. I took my flat bar, slid it
    in the crack and VOALA!!! Inside was an old Polident Tablet
    bottle. Picking it up it rattled. Treasure inside I opened
    it and found two crochet needles. One is definitely bone, but
    the other one is denser, shinier, and looks to be hand carved...
    .......Ivory? I don't know, but I think so.
    After checking out the needles, I took my attention back to the
    "Secret Compartment" in the floor. With my face literally IN the
    hole, I saw the color of Gold. Pulling the object out, I was
    certain it was brass, but my partner is convinced it is gold.
    It took awhile to get the object open, but when we did, We
    were surprised to find lipstick in it. It was dried out and not
    much of it, but it's there.
    If any of you know anything about Ivory, Or the brass/gold
    lipstick container marked only "Pompeian", Please let me know.
    Now that was enough for the day........NOT!!! At lunch, I took
    out my detector to check out my new 5" coil in the trashy yard,
    and the first hit was a pulltab, but I was feeling lucky, so I
    kicked the dirt aside and found a 20" gold chain marked 14k
    ITALY!!! I then got three pennies and gold crushed hoop earring.
    Needless to say, I had a great day!!!
    Enjoy the photos.

    I think that it should be brass too, but I didn't clean it do anything to it.
    It just looks sooo clean.
    I'll have it checked tomorrow.
    Thanks.

    Man Ty.... I wish I knew more about Lipstick tube's I'm sure you'll find an answer on it soon!But to have it come out from the floor board's looking like like get's me thinking Gold....Even if it was from the 50's it would have some kind of oxidation on it. Congrat's on the Gold chain and earring,they are shoe-in's and good luck with the other "needle" being Ivory...that would be cool.You're definetley pulling some pretty sweet stuff out of the old house....Keep em' comin'!!!!

    Thank Joe. I hope this jpb lasts all summer.
    The owner of the property said that I can detect the
    30 x 40' basement. I hope he sticks to his word.

    The key must lead to something somewhere, the hunt is just beginning!

    WTG on finding the gold. Sounds like you have a great site.


    PS, what detector did you use on the gold and what settings? Always curious, thanks.

    I was using my XLT on relic mode with a 5.3 coil.
    The chain came up at 33 on the VDI.
    We have gutted the entire house, so if the key is still in
    play, it's in the ......Basement, which I have not even
    stepped foot in yet. But soon.
    With all of the hidden spots upstairs, can't wait to search
    the basement!
