A bit late reading the newest replies. I never did find any info on the bell. It was stolen a couple or three years ago. One of my nephews, on my wife's side, stayed with us for a while. After he left, I couldn't find the bell anymore. That bell was in our family for quite a while.
Thank you all for the advice and info.
Getting some time on the 8500 may be an issue, but I will try to. Different coils are going to have to wait a bit, but the ability to interchange between the 4000 and 8500 is a big reason I am looking at the 8500 instead of the T2. I'm a bit old school...
Anything I should know?
I am working on getting permission to hunt some vacant property in Tombstone. If it works out (I'm 99% sure it will), I may only get one chance at this due to work schedules. I want to upgrade a bit before I hit the site and the 8500 I am looking at is priced about right.
Yeah, I tried. I drive through there about three times a week, for work. Most of the work seems to be done now. They have poured the new sidewalks for the most part.
For some reason, I thought you were in Tucson.

In pic #2 in the op, I'm seeing a horse with a woman riding it. I asked my wife what she saw and she came up with the same thing instantly.
In the new pic, the horse is facing towards the top of the page.
Maybe I just have an active imagination.
If you are asking about the second item, in the bottom row, it is part of a latch that is commonly used on dog leashes. That piece would be spring loaded and slide back to allow the leash to hook to a collar. They are also commonly used as key ring holders, gate latches, etc.
Some of you younger folks may not remember, but cereal boxes used to have some cool toys and stuff in them. I think it was Kellog's that had "Coins of the world".
There would be a little plastic bag with a foreign coin inside. I think it was mostly to help the sales of corn flakes:laughing7:. I...
Thanks for the response. Doesn't really feel like pewter, I don't think it feels right for silver, either. Kind of feels like aluminum.
I took about 30 pics of this thing, but these were the only two that didn't come out completely blurry or dark.
Found this a couple of days ago. It was nan eyeball find, sort of. We were tearing apart an old travel trailer and this was in a nook or cranny, not sure which. It was wrapped in a small Seagram's velvet bag.
I don't know anything about these coins, but here it is:
Is there a way of telling...
