Went back to the house where I found the Sterling thimble and finished the yard. Turned up several Goodies!
A first on the Sterling Silver Salt Shaker! And a little Monogram Sterling piece that’s busted off a mirror bottom or something.
Cool Watch Fob, Great Seal Collar Stud, 2 Wheats-1918,1950D, an old sash buckle and button I hit. Both of which had gold gilt. The small monogram piece tested positive for Silver, so Silver #26fty!
Thanks for Looking &
Happy Hunting !!!!!!

Great finds. The shaker is from R. Blackinton & Co of North Attleboro, MA. They were in operation from 1862-1967 but the ‘sword through B’ in that style is generally from the earlier half of their period of operation. The pattern number might get you to a narrower date if you can trace it.

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

If you forced me to guess, I would say the pattern is pre WWII.
Anyways amazing it still has it's glass insert!

Great way of finishing off the site.
The shaker is Art Deco 1930's era would be my guess.
Liking the monogramed piece as well, wonder if it hung off a chain as a pendent at one time.
