  1. Тodays finds

    Looks like an old rifle casing, as well. Lee-Enfield, possibly?
  2. Gold, Silver, Pearls, War Artifacts, and More! Haha! :D

    Think crossed cannons are artillery, pretty sure the "we support the Line" with the bomb is Arty. The uniform looks Viet Nam-era, though. Value, as always, is what someone is willing to pay. No big money there, though.

    Don't let the Cabin Fever get to ya. Think of something else to do, like, read a good book. Plan a trip (very detailed trip), and leave no item to chance! Even if there is no way to do it, PLAN the trip! Just keeping yourself busy, will get you past the maddening winter blahs, and set you up for...
  4. ✅ SOLVED Guess what this encrusted item is before crust is removed... see who comes close...

    I would have guessed an iron grommet from an old sail. Either that, or, possibly the nipple bolt from a signal canon or boarding gun.

    Well, as the caretaker of a campground and retreat center in NW Fla. I say; Bring it on! We just got our tractor back from the shop, so road maint. won't be an issue. Just had all three saws fully serviced. Generator has been rebuilt and checked out. Got a new Dump-trailer. AND to top it all...
  6. Whats the significance of your selected profile name?

    I entered adulthood, by joining the military. My handle is what I did: Fleet Marine Force Corpsman. All the Marines called me "doc" because I was their hands-on, front-line medical aid!! I keep it (fmfdoc), because I deeply respect the job they did/do, and I feel VERY honored that they...

  10. ✅ SOLVED hammer yard sale

    Carpenter's Hatchet. By the looks of the capped-wooden handle, I'd guess it was made by Western. My dad has one, which he got from his Grandfather, and it is almost identicle to this one. Dad's was made in the 20's, and was purchased as a farm-tool.

  15. Metal detecting illegal on Massachusetts state beaches July 1, 2014 !!!!!!!

    CG- Yes, it will spill-over to other states. The gov't is "testing the waters" in numerous states, and not just with Md'ing. Personal panning, any personal use of public land (hunting, herb collecting, grazing livestock, etc.) is being systematically stripped from the general public. The only...

  19. Metal Detector Advice

    For entry-level, I have been very pleased with the Garrett Ace 250. Even brand new, you can get it for 212.00. Used or demo, less....... Screen and multiple settings to play with. Pretty accurate ID. and a clear tone. Batteries last a pretty long while, too. NOT suited for salt water or...
