    Re: Night detecting

    Hey, know what that wierd thing is in the lower right corner is? It's an old mouth harp. The spring tab that makes the "twang" sound is gone, but it was attatched to the little notch in the middle of the circle shaped part. Cool. I've seen lots of harmonica reed plates, but that's the first mouth harp I've seen come out of the ground.

    Nice finds, I have one of those rings with a few keys hanging on it. Really! found it in my yard, but not my keys? If you night hunted in my neighborhood someone would probably take a shot at you! I see you're being politically correct as that instrument is commonly called a Jews Harp, why I have no idea, hope it isn't offensive to anyone. It's late, or early, 2:20 AM and I have insomnia and my brain goes dead at midnight! JIM

    Great finds again, Hard pan! At every foundation I've searched so far, I've found a harmonica reed. No "mouth harp' yet. Keep on posting!
