It’s back to the cold weather after my trip to Florida, but I think some of the warm followed me. I went out to one of the schools and it was 32, but quickly warmed up into the 50s so a good day to swing the detector.

I was using my old faithful CZ21 and in 6 hours I found 167 coins with a face value of $14.06 (nickel and dime heavy), the back half of the elephant Pin I found a while ago, a modern button, 2 matching keys 3 feet apart, marine corp ring, a 1964 D Rosie, a fashion ring, a little slaw and foil and lots of tabs.

The marine corp ring is still available for purchase with a simulated stone. This one was down deep and is an older style. The ring is brass with gold plating that is coming off all over the ring. The stone tests as a real ruby, it may be lab created, but it is still a ruby. The newer rings have 1945 under the Iwo Jima picture. This one has USMC in that place. Not a great find, but certainly an unusual one.

I went back to the civil war bullet school and detected for 5.5 hours. I found 92 coins with a face value of $4.88, a table spoon (GENESEE SILVER PLATE), a glass door knob, an aluminum B, 2 large keys, a CW bullet, a silver disc, a monopoly game tab and the usual pile of miscellaneous metal.

The bullet is another Williams Type III. When I found the silver disc I was pretty sure it was silver right off. I noticed the weld mark in the center and thought it might be a tiny silver flat button. When I cleaned it I could see it was marked STERLING and it had the initials SSJ on the front. It is scratched up rather badly and looks like it has been run over a number of times. It may have been thrown up in that area by the snow plow after it was run over as it was close to the parking area.

The table spoon looks like the Lynwood aka Memory pattern made in 1934. It is in the normal poor condition of plate tableware buried in the ground a long time.

I went to a ball field I haven’t been to in about 5 years. It’s not used a lot these days, but I have found civil war bullets and silver jewelry so I was hopeful. I covered the high traffic areas and did a little in areas not covered before. I dug all the high tones and most of the mid tones the CZ21 gave me and in 5 hours I found 84 coins with a face value of $4.93, 2 whatzits, a cheapie C pendant, a Pepsi game tab, a copper jacket bullet and the usual tabs, foil, cans slaw etc.

The first whatzit looks like the leg from something. It has a nice design at the base and is made from a pewter like metal (not sure exactly what metal). The second one is brass and looks like a window latch, but is too big and I’m not sure how it would fasten.

I went back to campus hoping for more goodies. Spent 5 hours swingin and found 35 coins with a face value of $1.97, an older style ear piece, a game tab, a mashed lead ball (probably a fishing weight), a bullet, a cheapie clip on earring, a few tabs and junk.

The bullet has a deep dome base and you can see three faint rings. It looks a lot like a minie ball that was forced into a barrel that was too small. The shape of the tip could be from the ramrod. I’m not sure if it is or is not a truly a minie. The rings are spaced oddly and it measures close to .58 caliber (it is out of round so the measurements vary as you turn it. .58 minies measure more like .57)

Not a great week, but not a bad one either. I was going to go out today, but it’s snowing again and the temps are going to get into the single digits tonight. I hope spring gets here soon. Thanks for looking, stay safe, good luck and may your coil lead you to good things.

Well done on the hunts, and getting a bit of silver.
The ring is a different looking one for sure-could be a spun bowl ruby.
That ear bling is a ridiculous size, and fake looking really. :)

Your window latch thing is for holding rope or I should say window blinds cord, the cams come together and hold the cord to keep the blinds open, to release you squeeze the two latches towards each other and the cord releases. But it is old I haven't seen anything like that since I was a kid. I have used that type of cam design to make tool holders they work great.
