31c here today but I wasn't sitting at home. I put the 6"dd on the Terra to fit in amongst the thick junk where I went. Its the edge area of a gold lead where a lot of junk was left.

Got these two broach frames, the leaf one still had the wooden centre but it felt apart as I cleaned the dirt off of it.

What was left of an old fob watch.

Some old lid.

This I was real happy to find. A 1 oz gold weight, naturally used for weighing gold. Its spot on 1 oz too.
Typically they have a makers mark but this just has the number 1 on one side and Oz on the other.
The makers mark was never a guarantee they were correct as I found a couple with a crown and official stamp mark yrs ago that were well under weight.

I can't imagine 31c these days... it's -15c outside right now, but with the wind it's -21c. :laughing7:
Very nice 1 oz gold weight, I think the 'old lid' is to a 1920s - 30s Ponds Cold Cream jar.
Love this little brooch frame. :thumbsup:

Thanks for sharing your hunt with us Chille,
Dave

Ah, I think you're right. The area is overlain with old and newer.
Im imagining the diggers now after a hard day laying back on their swag with their faces covered in cream relaxing.😀

Your lid looks like it might be from an old snuff or chewing tobacco can.

That brings back memories from my childhood. My dad rolled his own cigarettes. I loved watching cowboy movies. Put the two together and you had an 8 year old filling his mouth with cigarette tobacco and chewing.
I just about threw up. 😆
