  1. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED U. S. Tag or Fob?

    Posting for a buddy, and I watched him dig this out of the yard of a home built in 1880 and occupied until now. Some have suggested it is off of a US mail bag, and I am hoping to get some photos to confirm. Thank you for any help you can offer, Sub 8-) Here is the one he dug Friday: Here is...
  2. My Ears Are Ringing!

    Sunday’s Bling Festivus landed 10 rings and a couple of charms. All from two school yards that I have detected on a regular basis. One really nice solid gold ring was the highlight of the day, frostbitten fingers and all. Gold ring rang up a banging solid 47 VDI, which is very consistent for...
  3. Nice And Shiny, Like A Baboon's Hiney!

    That's how I like to see bling in the plug. A few tidbits from the past few days digging in public lawns. All gave unusual VDI signals on the ATMax...due to size, weight, and content I assume. There are two marked .925 rings, one silver plated, hand-made spoon ring marked, "Community," and one...
  4. Modern Jewelry to Civil War Era Relics From Public Lawns.

    Went to a smaller town nearby and hit the schoolyards and a public park yesterday. Highlights included five rings, with one being a nice marked .925 sterling silver ring with CZ stones. From one soccer field in the park, I was surprised to find a .58 Caliber Minnie ball and a Chinese cash coin...
  5. November Was A Giving Month!

    November produced some really nice precious metal jewelry from different schoolyards and parks. (Four gold rings and four sterling pieces.) Thanksgiving weekend ended with a pretty, marked 10K gold ring with ruby-colored stones, and a pretty, marked .925 sterling silver earring, (which I...
  6. Parks and Schools Produce the Precious Metals!

    Public lawns still produce. Last two weekends gave be two .925 sterling rings, one 10k gold class ring, and one 14k men's wedding band. Weather and dirt conditions were perfect. I have put a call in to the high school for a hopeful reunion of the ring with its owner. Found loads of other...
  7. From A Park That Has Been Hammered Hard For The Past Fifty Years...

    I bring you this little beauty. An intact, silver plated WW2 US Army Air Corps Pilot's Sweetheart pin! It was about two inches down and rang up like the usual Lincoln clad cent. What a surprise and the mystery is this, both pins were closed and locked when found, so it must have been removed...
  8. Who's That Geek Detecting The Creek?

    Me, of course. A beautiful creek in Barry County, Missouri, not far from the Battle of Pea Ridge. It is said that both the Yanks and Johnny Reb camped along its banks. This stretch of creek has been hit hard for many years by very competent detectorists, but still produces the goods! My...
  9. Sunday-Monday Fun Days!

    A couple of rings from public lawns. The Tungsten Carbide ring is so big that I can almost get two of my bony little fingers in it. It is marked "King Will." It rang up a solid 70 on the VDI. The ladies ring was the very first beep after turning on my AT Max and walking about 20' out...
  10. Some Schoolyard Scores!

    Some nice finds from local schoolyards. The cross and chain are marked stainless steel, sure wish they were silver and gold. A really nice peice, none the less. The old watch fob is for a local dairyman's coop. Fobs are some of my favorite finds, so this one was a nice surprise. A stout...
  11. When The Goodie Gods Restock The Sod...

    I hit a pair of school lawns today. One I have not been to in about 2 years. I guess the goodie "gods" restocked the sod for me in my absence. I managed six rings, one pendant, and $4.17 in clad. Two of the rings are much-welcomed sterling silver and one is a very appreciated 14K gold...
  12. Possible Sword Hilt Piece?

    This came from a property in Stone County, Missouri that also produced late 1800's Minnie balls, toe taps, and other brass items. It is heavy, thick brass, and has a raised edge around the curved side. Unknown pattern of cuts on the other side. Is is possibly a broken half of a hilt off of a...
  13. Silver Wings, Shining In The Sunlight...

    Went curb strippin'/parkway diggin' with a couple of friends today. My big score was a bucklet-lister for me, a WW2 US Army Air Corps pilot's wings, marked sterling. An antique copper with celluloid (?) photo frame, some clad, and other odds and ends rounded out the day. Thanks for...
  14. Victor-Victorian!

    A friend and I hit a mid-1800's era Victorian, two story house on a corner lot in a quaint little SW Missouri railroad town. Lots of targets, moderate amount of trash. Some goodies were excavated, some of them being nice little surprises! Here is my loot from the two digs. Thanks for...

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of my friends around the globe on Treasurenet. Cheers, Mr. and Mrs. Subterranean :occasion14:
  16. Different Type of Chain From 1880's-1940's Farmhouse Site.

    Seems too small and delicate to be used on animals or machinery. Made of copper or brass, no maker's markings. Thank you for any help you can provide. Sub 8-)
  17. Black Friday? No, Gold and Silver Friday!

    Got out for a short hunt at a local school today. For years, it has been hit and miss here. But today, wow! The gold with amethyst (?) ring was a few inches deep in the bark in front of a swing set. Out behind it, in the lawn, was the little sterling earring (?) or finger ring. Hiding there...
  18. Lost Tribe Unearthed, Along With Victorian Goodies...

    A friend and I hit a mid 1800's Victorian corner house site in Southwest Missouri and came home with some goodies. A first for me was the BRASS (I have one iron one) skeleton key. Surprisingly, no silver or toys (or toy parts) were found! Thanks for peeking, get out and dig if you can...
  19. Couple of Sassy Silvers on a Rainy Sunday!

    Well-hammered (mostly by me :laughing7:) school yards gave up a few silvers on Sunday. A marked .925 silver claddaugh ring and a possible Native American made small pendant or earring piece with turquoise and pink coral stones. Get out and dig in this beautiful fall weather. Cheers, Sub 8-)
