  1. Detecting finds from Sunday (early 1900s ring and more)

    My uncle gave me permission to detect a rental house he owns in the small town of Clinton, Indiana. He said the house was built in the 1890s. My favorite find was what I think is a brass/copper alloy ring with a fake Opal from the turn of the century. Second favorite find is a 1910 Barber dime...

  10. Help ID’ng points/blades

    Hello. I am totally uneducated regarding Native American points. Over my boyhood years, I always kept my eyes to the ground looking for interesting threads. Over that time I found a few native points, but I haven’t a clue as to their identity. All of these come from central Indiana. I’m...

  12. ✅ SOLVED Strange item from 1800s homesite

    Found this strangely shaped item in a harvested bean field in west central Indiana near an old home site dating to around 1830s. It registered about a 55-60 on my Garrett AT max and based on the look of it I'd say it's copper alloy (brass usually rings up around 77) but I'm not sure why it's not...
  13. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Mystery brass item

    Anyone know what this brass thing is? It reminds me of the lid to a torch that I used while in Dental School called a Hanau Torch (you insert a small bit of rope that soaks up alcohol and burns when you light it). I found it in west central Indiana, USA at a location where I’ve found several...
  14. Bifurcated Point

    Here is an interesting bifurcated point which has characteristics of a lost lake point, except its bifurcated. Possibly a Charleston Corner Notched or a Big Sandy Contracting Base This point was found in Delaware County Indiana by David Young. David was in Who's Who #5. let me know what...
  15. Kosciusko Co Indiana hafted scraper

    Good size to this hafted scraper. Not sure why this image has an orange tint. The edge image more accurately reflects the actual color. Both taken within a few minutes at the same location.
  16. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Mystery item!

    Found this at a site in west central Indiana, USA that turns up items that date to early 1800s-early 1900s. Any ideas? I included a front and back image and also an image of a tiny hinge on the back and a tiny loop (makes me think something would’ve clipped into this loop when it closed using...
  17. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Mystery iron loop!

    Hi! I am from west central Indiana and found this large iron piece about a foot deep in a gravelly creek bed. The site is supposed to be where US soldiers camped in the early 1800s. I’ve found evidence of camped soldiers nearby from 1811 and onward into the civil war era (buttons, harmonica...
  18. Shortened Form Perhaps??

    Hi What are these? And how did they get in the limestone I was dissolving in acid to release some kind of fossil that is in it? The Limestone is from north central Indiana. Here are some pics of the limestone specimen that these came from: I appreciate anything at all that I can find out...
  19. Is this worth anything?

    I doubt very much that I would actually sell it. The this piece had gone through quite an epic journey to get to the place where it and I would meet, sparking new avenues of interest in me, and ushered in a personal evolution in my life through the learning of how its life kinda single handedly...
  20. Looking for info

    I found a few interesting things in Indiana around the Bloomington area and I was wondering if I could get information on them. It's sort of a random lot, but I figure someone may have a better idea than me. Any guesses would be much appreciated!
