  2. 🥇 BANNER My First Gold- Tudor Rose Gold Cufflinks

    I was too shocked to do a gold dance when I pulled these out of the hole. With a shallow, 8 on my Nox I almost didn't dig what turned out to be one of my best finds ever: gold, intact, cufflinks with the Tudor rose. A little research I think they are mid 1700's, not military but someone...

    Hi everyone, I found this at a digging event in Tarboro, NC. It’s probably 2in x 1in, and has two white leaf patterns on the back. I’m told it’s likely a colonial clog clasp. Can anyone confirm this is what it is? And approximately the age? Thanks

    Hi everyone, I found what seems to be a toasted old copper coin while metal detecting on a local Chesapeake bay beach here on the Eastern Shore of MD. The most I can make of it are some lines and what seems to be an "EOR' word fragment; this thing is worn down to a disc. In addition to pictures...
