After 3 four hour walks/stumbles in a cornfield and your finds are similar to these:

When I walk I'm always looking for points, but this ain't what I wanted. :BangHead:

Then, I figured at least I found a solid brass ring. Just about a quarter pound!

But, I noticed another wrinkle when I got home. What the heck is that lil screw the arrowhead is pointing at!? :icon_scratch:

The following is just an update on the SLQ I found a bit ago. I did clean it up a bit. But I tried a technique I found here on T'net. I gotta say, I was a bit pleasantly surprised by the results.

Here's the rubbing, what do you think?

Thanks for peeking!

That looks like a ring for a cow’s nose! Very cool find in my book!

It looks like you cleaned the SLQ with a blow torch! House fire or field fire maybe? Gary

Naw. If you peek at the original post, you'll see it was already dark. Probably due the chemicals in a cornfield. Or....are you confusing the foil rubbing as the cleaned coin? :dontknow:

I was concentrating on raising the date on the rubbing.

Yep, I thought the foil rubbing was a coin. You got me on that one. Gary

Yeah I've had real dud fields that I did research on and thought for sure would have the goods. One of the downsides to hunting in the midwest. If there wasn't something there then there won't be much but shotgun shells - find a new field.
