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.

The Rosie was about 10 inches down and is a 1954 D, the wheatie is a 1920 in rough shape. I have recovered hundreds of coins from this school but this Rosie is only the 5th silver coin. The school was built in 1953 so you would think there should be more older coins.

The product label is for a dispoalite II which appears to be a long lasting candle that appears to be made in France and distributed by someone in STANFORD CONN.

My next trip was to the civil war bullet school. I was hoping to find a few more older artifacts from the war. They are widely scattered so you never know when the next one will turn up and they are anywhere from a half inch to 12 inches down. The deeper ones don’t give quite as nice he response from the detector as the ones closer to the surface so you have to listen carefully so you don’t miss any goodies.

I continued the grid behind the school hoping to find more bullets and with a lot of luck maybe the rest of the silver bracelet. I spent 6 hours working the grid and doing more walk arounds. The grid didn’t produce much this time and the best find of the day was on my way back to the truck.

I only found 41 coins with a face value of $2.75, an interesting brass whatzit, a ferrous stud earring (eyeballed on top of the ground), a modern “button, half a civil war bullet, a star rivet, a St. Jude medal, 2 modern bullets, tabs and can slaw.

The civil war bullet is my best find of the day and was found on my way back to the truck. It is a Williams Type III that has been cut in half as a game piece. A lot of the oxidation came off with the dirt when I popped it out. This has happened to me a number of time before when you find these older bulllets in a damp area. The oxidation is soft and pops off easily. It’s a shame because they look so much better with a uniform white coating. The brass item is a mystery. It is an elongated octagon shape. You can see a set of triangular areas with a pattern on the front. There is a hook on the front and an eye on the back for it to fasten to something. There are no makers marks on it. Any help with an ID would be appreciated.

There was a festival at the festival grounds on the Memorial Day weekend so I decided to extend a grid I was working and hope for a few fresh losses as well. I spent 5 hours with the CZ21 on the grid and doing some walking around areas where tents were up. I found 44 coins with a face value if $6.25, an old horseshoe, a odd piece of green brass, an modern aluminum button, a penny mashed on the nearby railroad tracks, some aluminum cans and a bunch of freshly lost tent pegs.

The brass piece is a nice green color, but has no identifying markings and odd groves in it. No way to identify so just scrap metal to recycle.

I went to the scout camp to gather up the pegs I have found over the past year and get them to the 3 quarter masters so they could be used to set up camp on the weekend. I had 4 hours after the gathering and did a little swingin. Not a lot of coins or money, but lots of leather craft stamps. All total 35 coins with a face value of $3.13, 17 leather craft stamps (3 different sizes), 2 rope tensioners, 3 tokens (shield on 1 side, sunburst on the other, in 2 sizes) a sinker, 32 more camp tent pegs and a little junk.

I have spent some time over the last several months getting displays of the camp finds ready to give to the camp. I also made did a writ up for each part of the display and put it in a folder so people would know what they were looking at if it was an unfamiliar object. I took them with me when I went to camp this time and we set up a mini museum so the scouts can see what things have been lost over the past 40 years and so future scouts can share that experience as well. Here are pictures of the displays and the set up. I have a similar plan for things found at the college and hopefully I will get some time to start on that project soon. I won’t live forever and these finds will mean more to the scouts and students of the college than they do to my kids and grandkids so I figure that is the best way to use them. I am digging history and it should be shared with anyone who cares to see it.
