Why hello there people of the treasure-verse. I happened along a foundation on a strip of parkland in a town forty miles south of me and beeped a couple of vintage things. Found half a goldpan full of lead lump-o's so definitely some industry happening here. The cross is three inches long and made of lead, very crude and very cool imo. I was on a work type mission which originally brought me south today and did not have a ton of time (and had the wrong coil on my machine) so couldn't stay more than an hour but good potential, TONS of iron (its a railroad site) and found one of my favorite American coins, the V nick! I will go back another time with the right gear and slow my roll. Enjoy and I hope ya'll good fortune in your endeavors!

That's a cool looking cross, the V nickel is a nice one.
Well done 👏

Great finds! What town were you in? Just curious, as I grew up mostly on the Western Slope.
Thanks, I was in Ridgway, just a little 'in between' place near old rail line. It was my first day at the Longmont IBM plant when the 911 disaster occured so have a connection to Longmont, always liked it there livedin Broomfield a few years
