Well, it's finally clearing up outside. Maybe digging later this week but I did get out a few times over the weekend. One site was a long forgotten colonial home. It has been hit before, but there are still targets in the ground, especially around the iron.

Here's this week's take. IMG_1142.JPG Since it was so HUGE, I had to keep the oyster shell, we found a few like these.

IMG_1143.JPG Piece of nice slipware (on red body) with a piece of Westerwald. IMG_1144.JPG This is a lead "sow". The elongated strip of lead remaining where buckshot or musket balls were cast from it! My first one ever!

IMG_1145.JPG Back piece to a bristle brush and part of a pewter spoon handle.

IMG_1146.JPG Just part of where a Bellarmine handle would have attached to the body of the jug, but look at the fingerprints!

IMG_1147.JPG Colonial child's whizzer toy! My first one ever!

IMG_1148.JPG Large tombac button with shank, 1/2 reale and brass stud for a wooden box.

IMG_1150.JPG Late 17th to early 18th century spur in iron and part of a knife.

IMG_1151.JPG Nice forged iron buckle and some rose head nails.

I have one more piece to treat with the hot wax- a complete horse bit! Let the fun begin, but it needs more cleaning first.
