20150716_144918~2.jpg 20150716_144918~2.jpg My best find.....New to forums, please forgive my azzbackwardness, that's just how I roll. Sorry I'm copying and pasting this all over this site, but I really love this detector! Some years ago I found this object in Utah. I'm trying to get opinions on whether it could possibly be Spanish. I think it's a concho or rosette. It doesn't look like anything old Caleb Rhoades would attach to his horse, it seems pretty girly to me. Its quite intricate, and under a magnifier you can tell it's hand etched. The circle lines around it are actually tiny squares, or rope pattern. The most interesting part is that tonight, I scraped off the muck a bit more, and it's quite light golden in color. I thought it was brass, but then I ran it over an unpainted ceramic surface, and lo and behold it was gold streaks. The inside is bright silver gobbeldy-goop, after you get the gunk off. I know I've heard gold doesn't tarnish but then I heard that it does, after a long period of time, start with a black film and that's what it looks like. I'm heading up to the Uinta's again, and dusted it off, a few days ago. I found something similar to this one, this is the link.. Silver Concho Worn by Spanish Soldier's Horse

Well, it may comfort you to know that the winner was chosen at random, so you could have found a complete chess set carved from George Washington's rib cage and still might not have won it. :)

Hell FFARL.... I'm glad somebody won it who actually found something good. I'd of never lived it down winning something from some stupid horseshoe finds. And the closest I'm going to get to some ribs are thawing out on my kitchen counter at this moment!!! I'm probably the only idiot stupid enough to post a horseshoe in the first place! :occasion14:
