  4. Kansas U Engineering pendant....age? value?

    I would like to know the approximate value and age of this KU Engineering Council pendant. It measures 3/4" x 1/2". It was found in a box of costume jewelry, and while the jewelry had slight corrosion due to the humid climate, this pendant had none. That makes me dream that it could be...

  8. The few Seated coins I've found in 25 yrs of part-time MD'ing (and a few other favorite finds)

    ...and i do mean few. Hopefully the count will go up since retirement earlier in the year. No more work related excuses for not hunting. All 3 dimes are from the same home site, which is now an overgrown lot that is best hunted in early Spring...after the thaw and before the tall weeds. Both...

  11. Please ID & date this military rivet

    That was my first thought, but it will not separate. There are no serrations on the smooth side for turning to separate. The center is flat and solidly attached to both 'pieces'. With good lighting and a loupe i can see that this is one piece. More pics...
  12. Please ID & date this military rivet

    I would like some info on this rivet (assuming that's what it is...found it in a box of miscellaneous items from an estate sale), like its age, what military branch, etc.. Would it be brass, or bronze? Would also like to know what part of a uniform this rivet would be used on. The space or gap...

  16. Old foundations over the years, what to look for

    At some sites that I hunt the foundation area is easy to spot because it is sunken. Probably filled with dirt or building debris that has decomposed and settled over time. Other sites have raised areas where brick homes were torn down and the foundation was filled with bricks that won't...

    Thanks. The home site where the items were found is marked on the 1874 plat book, but not on the 1904 plat.
