  3. Minie Ball..Modern Replica or old?

    Thanks for the opinion and information 21stTNCav. I was mainly concerned about the patina, since I thought they almost always came out of the ground tan. But is sounds like this is not always the case. The location I found it was not a place where there would be any competitive weapons fire for...
  4. Minie Ball..Modern Replica or old?

    I am definitely not an expert on Minie balls. I am looking for opinions as to whether this is a modern replica? or original? I found the minie ball on the left today (The one on the right was found a couple years ago). The thing that confuses me is that it doesn't have the patina I would...

  7. Best Find Since Detecting!

    Yes they all the rings were found in parks. If I remember right this particular platinum ring came in pretty much about one notch above pulltab on the Ace250. There was a subtle difference from the normal sound that made me dig. I also think it was a little more stable than normal items that...

  9. Best Find Since Detecting!

    I've been away from posting on-line for a while for a multitude of reasons, but figured I'd come back with my best for this year. This is my third year detecting and I had two "firsts" this month. Last weekend I found a platinum and diamond anniversary/wedding band marked "950" platinum. I just...

  12. Need help identifying these little metal men...

    In 1881 John G. Borden (of the Borden, Inc - the Dairy Company family) took over this farm. He bought the farm from a John P. Andrews. This farm in a town called Wallkill in the Hudson Valley of New York. His father, Gail Borden, was the inventor of the condensed milk process. So I believe the...
  13. Need help identifying these little metal men...

    When I got home today I went down and did a tally of men to the numbers on their sides. Here are the tally's ... #1 - 2 men #3 - 2 men #4 - 2 men #5 - 3 men #7 - 1 man #8 - 2 men Since they seem to be cast I'm wondering if these could be a mold number? Since most of them are not complete its...
  14. Need help identifying these little metal men...

    I tend to agree with them being attached to the barn somehow ... mainly because that's been a consistant message I've received over the last 30 years ... as I believe, historically, it has always been a farm, sheep or dairy, and have never hear anything about manufacture or toys. Great thought...
