  1. The furry variety of Smokeythecat has died - not the people one who types

    Very sorry my friend. One of the saddest things in life is that our pets don't live as long as we do. You'll rarely ever have a 2 legged friend as loyal as a pet either.
  2. What if I had 24k pure raw gold?

    Well there went 20 minutes of reading I'll never get back...
  3. Peralta Stones translated by the Blindbowman ...

    I'm going to do my best to stay within the rules and not comment on whether or not I believe some of the stories that often pop up on here and go on and on and on with never any pictures and simply make it known... If I ever am lucky enough to find a huge treasure of incredible value you'll not...
  4. Peralta Stones translated by the Blindbowman ...

    Wow you were gone for 10 hours.. We missed you. No dog in this fight, just sitting here patiently waiting for the pictures....
  5. Sterling makers mark

    Funny story about Sterling. I had a friend who ran the local town dump and on Sundays he had a yard sale in front of his house selling lots of things others threw away. Nothing wrong with that because he also had a table at the dump where people could put things that were still good and were...
  6. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Bayonet

    quick & easy rule of thumb that's usefull when looking at these US bayonets at an antique shop, flea market, etc is that if a penny will fall through the hole they are likely earlier than 1865. If it won't it's probably for an 1873 Trapdoor
  7. Oak Island Factual (proven/documented) Information

    Can we all at least agree to choke the narrator ? We watch it every week purely for the entertainment value but that guy is extremely annoying. "A mysterious rusty nail ? Could it be one of the nails from the crucifiction of Christ?" Good lord shut that guy up. Between him repeating everything...
  8. 🥇 BANNER 17th Century Ball Pouch Contents - Colonial Warfare Frozen in Time

    Being a direct descendant of Captain Samuel Wadsworth who was killed in the "Sudbury Fight" this is a great post ! Many years ago I read a story in one of the treasure magazines about a guy who found his signet ring near the scene of the battle.
  9. The curse is fulfilled

    So.. call me logical and skeptic but, since nobody has a clue if there's a treasure or who put it there who invented this bogus "legend" ?
  10. Season 7 - The story goes on...

    I like the show but I want to choke the narrator. If you get rid of the commercials and that fool repeating everything "a mysterious bit of wood.. could it be from a treasure chest".. etc it would be an 8 minute show.
  11. I NEED HELP IDENTIFYING THIS ARROWHEAD I PURCHASED 20 YEARS AGO

    Cool rock. And welcome to the forum
  12. McAX Mobilgas sign marking

    The picture is a bit hard to see...
  13. Detecting frozen ground?

    Boy I sure don't miss that. Born & raised in New Hampshire and lived there until about 8 years ago when I came to my senses and moved to Tennessee. I can remember many an early Spring day heading out to the woods to do a bit of detecting because it was warm & sunny only to start digging a signal...
  14. Found on Craig's List

    Looks to be a tilt column too. That adds a few bucks. Somewhere in my toolbox I still have the special tools needed to rebuild those when the tilt part gets all floppy.
  15. Found on Craig's List

    You'd be amazed at how many CAMARO parts I've found over the years on Craigslist and other online sites simply by doing a search of the wrong spelling... Just sayin. lol.. I'm dead serious too. And being a Camaro guy it helps. That one looks to be from a 2nd generation, mid to late 70s or so.
  16. Question about what coins were in circulation pre - 1965

    I was born in 56 and my parents were coin collectors so I remember pretty well what they were looking for. They would go to the bank and get rolls to search just like we do now. They saved any Mercs they found and rolled them, Standing Liberty quarters if they had readable dates, same with...
  17. Is anyone going to watch the upcoming Oak Island TV show in Nov. 2019?

    I hate the narrator. "A mysterious bit of trash ? Could it be the key to solving the mystery?" Just shut up....
  18. Rare CW ordnance for sale - one day only!

    Please take no offense but as someone who has been a seller on Ebay for 20 years it's my opinion that your starting bids are way too high. You can post "going going gone" all you want but if nobody else thinks the stuff is worth what you're asking you're going to end up with no sale. I'm almost...
  19. Moving south

    Be careful where you go down there. I spent a Winter in Silverhill and while it's a very cool area, good places to poke around are scarce without permission. Driving down to check out Fort Morgan in Gulf Shores as you get close to the fort you'll see signs everywhere letting you know you can be...
  20. Anyone know about license plates?

    $20-$40 going by Ebay "sold" auctions. If he had a matching pair they are worth a bit more. I collect license plates and personally it wouldn't be worth even $20 to me simply because they aren't all that rare. You have to remember all the regular passenger car plates they issued that year had...
