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 thatโ€™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 !!!!!!

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 thatโ€™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!

The oblong piece with the rod going through at the top of the sixth picture is a type of padlock. The key looks like an I beam. You push the key in till the other end of the lock pops out pulling the bar with it. You can make a key for it from hobby shop materials for model ships. HINT throw it in an ultrasonic cleaner to get ALL the dirt out before poking in the key hole.

You got some great finds, in real good shape! Are you planning on re-working the site again after one or two rains?

Thank You!! Well the Ladyโ€™s Sons were there this time and a bit hesitant on letting Me even though She gave me a standing permission. Probably not. I went slow and gridded the hot spots. Hopefully I got most of it๐Ÿ˜
