Hi Folks, I got out again for a hour today since we got a little rain. So happy to have finally got some. You could tell as far as target depth with some moisture in the dirt. Seamed like I was getting deeper targets cleaner. This is the sight I got the 1811 5 franc earlier this year.

One Musket ball
Old "NUBONE" garter clip
One older fired bullet
One Moto-meter beautyring. These were on model T radiators for temperature indication. Kinda cool looking over the hood and seeing your engine temp..lol

25-20 WCF shell from late 1800's

And of course the what's it :D


Nothing to exciting but happy to be out again. Looking forward for more soon!!

1811 5 franc is a very old coin for this part of the country. Great work!

Cool old relics. That Moto Meter radiator thingy is in remarkable condition for a Model T part. Is there any value to something like that? Any chance it still works? Very interesting find.:headbang:

I just found the Ring from it in the first picture. I posted the other pic of a complete one to show what it come off of. But the ring itself is in fantastic shape. the chrome plate has held up almost perfectly. Hopefully It doesn't seem misleading with the second pic.

Oops. My bad. Past my bed time. Thanks for the clarification.:icon_thumright:
