Hi everyone we had a little club hunt today from 9 to 11am this morning at a property to recover a ring lost recently. Unfortunately, we did not locate the ring but I beeped something pretty interesting on the second site as well as a little rotten coinpurse with three wheaties in it (in picture I thought there was only one target but recovered two more after taking it). First site is a little park I hunted to kill time before the club hunt, the arrow charm I think is nickel silver (it scratched .500 and is marked KS) and the little shell is cool. Not exactly sure what the copper tag is but it reads DENVER at top and at bottom 'LET'ER BUCK DENVER' and shows a little cowboy riding a bronco or something. This site dates from late 1880's originally so no idea on age of tag but I think its pretty cool. If you know, post below. Enjoy!

Maybe an exhibitors or contestants badge related to Denver's National Western Stock Show that's been a big deal around town for over a hundred years. Online you'll find several pins and badges related to this event.

tamrock thank you for the direction I believe you are correct and judging by the cityscape thinking late thirties-early forties and a ribbon or paper insert would have gone through the center denoting status as vendor, guest, contestant, et al. I'm calling it a Denver National Western Stock Show vendor badge, appreciate the help with the ID!

Yeah I was thinking the later 1930s + also. Thats just how they made things back then. They wanted things like that nice and detailed and something a person would be pleased to have received.
