  7. Colonial Picnic Site and INDIAN ROCK outcrop - NC

    This unique granite outcrop landmark feature has hand and foot holes ground into the slanting face of the granite to the top. I have climbed it and appears to have been once used as a Native American "Deer Stand", or should I say "Rock Stand!" Looking down you can scout the area silently...
  8. Nice old silver cuff link

    Looks like a nice old site, I noticed the brass grommets with leather still in place. I found a pair this year at a colonial to early 1800s site, interesting the leather is still attached. You can run some mink oil on the leather to help preserve it and not to dry out and crumble, FYI. Flat...

  13. 1902 Liberty Head, V Nickel - COUNTERFEIT, everything reads backwards???

    This is ODD, went out today on Main Street in Rolesville, NC and found this in a farm field. I thought I had found a V Nickel, but upon inspection everything reads backwards including the date. It has 13 stars on face, but they are all impressed versus raised. The bust faces right instead of...
  14. Cut Spanish silver and lots more

    Toasted: Cheers to you, what a great site and thanks for sharing, that cut piece of silver is an awesome find along with the flat buttons and buckle frames.

  15. Puzzling Silvered Button with CROWN and 2 FLEUR DE LIS

    Bummer, those buttons are from a blazer from Kohl's or T.J. Max?, along with the Colonial Spanish Reales, I guess it is a multi-component site. The baby head spook is a scary one

  17. Sword Quillon? Colonial site FINDS, help with ID?

    I am hoping this is a Sword Quillon from a hand guard off a hunting sword or short sword? Any thoughts? It is broken on one end, NOTE the ball end as it seems to match a sword Quillon? Please share your thoughts for identification. NO, it is not a drawer pull, haha. This colonial site has...
