  3. Four hours discovering the history in Chihuahua…and pum 💥 watch our findings

    You are finding some really fantastic coins and other artifacts. Maybe I should come down and try my luck. I really like your campfire cooker. I do a lot of camping so that would come in handy. It looks like it was custom made. Stay safe, good luck and keep swingin.
  4. A weird civil war bullet, an old bus token, slide day at camp and a patch of wheat

    I went to the civil war bullet school to do a little swingin of the CZ21. I started by extending the grid in front of the school. In 3 hours I only found 3 pennies, a dime and a fired bullet. So I moved to another part of the property and the coins were better. In the 5 hours I was there I...
  5. I Like Mercury Dimes

    Congratulations on the merc. They are beautiful coins. The neckerchief slide is for the Webelos rank of Cub Scouts, 4th and 5th graders these days. Stay safe and keep swingin.
  6. 2 silvers, a civil war style lead die, 2 dollar coins and a 2 dollar coin and variety from the scout camp

    Thanks Jeff I do my best. Yes my old shoulder gets sore sometimes, but you have to keep swingin to bring in the goodies. And yes I am cleaning the place out pretty good. Thanks to all, stay safe and keep swingin.
  7. Two Jersey Coppers, a Large Cent and an awesome iron shoe buckle!

    Congratulations on the 2 New Jersey coppers. So far in 20 years of detecting I have not found any state coppers so you have done well. In my opinion you have enough detail on the second one to easily identify it so leave it alone. You can always work on it later if you change your mind or...
  8. 2 silvers, a civil war style lead die, 2 dollar coins and a 2 dollar coin and variety from the scout camp

    Went back to the festival grounds to do some more swingin. Always hopeful, but with the knowledge that it may all just be junk and clad. Spent 5 hours wandering over spots occupied by tents during the festival, hoping for a deep oldie from areas I have not gridded and new losses. In 5 hours I...
  9. End of gold drought, 1st of the season

    That has been my experience as well. It may be small, but gold with ice is always nice. Stay safe, good luck and keep swingin.
  10. .

    I hate to rain on your parade, but I think the other folks are correct. Here is one i found a few weeks ago that looks very much like yours. I have tested mine and it is NOT gold. Sorry better luck next time. They are out there so stay safe, good luck and keep swingin.
  11. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Strange brass octagonal whatzit with hook

    It does look a little like the hook end of a cloak clasp. You may have got it. Thanks for the input. Stay safe and keep swingin.
  12. A silver Rosie, some jewelry, CW bullets, scout camp finds and mini museum at camp

    I went to one of the schools to do some swingin. In 6 hours I managed to find 98 coins with a face value of $8.26, a big zipper, a small lock, part of a YALE JUNIOR padlock, a bangle, an earring, an aluminum product tag, a silver Rosie, a wheatie, some tabs, can slaw and aluminum bottle caps...
  13. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Strange brass octagonal whatzit with hook

    Found this at a school that has produced a lot of civil war items, but the site had homes on it for a long time after the war before the school was built in the 1960s. It is concave brass with a pattern on the front with a hook also on the front. On the back there are no markings, but it has...
  14. Civil war bullets, 6 rings and silver from the school, the water was a dud but scout camp keeps giving

    I got a chance to go back to the civil war bullet school. I spent 5.5 hours swingin the CZ21 finishing a grid in front of the school and starting a new one in the back. I found a spoon bowl, a CSX heart pin, a pendant, half a key, 6 rings, a dog whistle, 2 civil war bullets, part of a...
  15. First water hunt of the year brings a gold and 4 silvers, a noteworthy coin spill at the scout camp and a 1920s DB hubcap

    Thank you. You are welcome to tag along anytime you wish. Stay safe and keep swingin.
  16. A few neat finds

    Congratulations on a good hunt. The all brass shotgun shell is older than most we find. I found 2 in a dump once and one of them had the reloading funnel still in it like they were going to reload and changed their mind. The brass shotgun shells are not something you see everyday. Keep...
  17. First water hunt of the year brings a gold and 4 silvers, a noteworthy coin spill at the scout camp and a 1920s DB hubcap

    I went camping with the family this past weekend and the swim ropes were in so I could do some detecting in the water. This park is heavily detected and I covered a lot of it last fall right before they took the swim ropes out so it hasn’t had many people swimming since then to loose new...
  18. The week starts with a heavy silver bracelet (1 toz) and ends with 4 silvers (1 big silver) a V and a Buffalo

    Thanks for the input. I did list that one as part of a wire clamp. The whatzit is the half moon with the flat bottom right above the buckle in the picture. Stay safe and keep swingin.
  19. Great few hunts, 2 cent!!!

    Congratulations on some nice keepers. What does the back of your Eagle button look like? It appears to be of the 1851 to 1941 style. The backmark could tell us how old it is. Atay safe and keep swingin.
  20. Shank button

    Historian that looks to me like a copper rivet used to hold leather items together. Some of the older rivets are marked with a single star in the center. I have found several over the years. Stay safe and keep swingin.
