Nice array of finds today. Copper spoon handle. Silver plated (?) spoon, no mark. Couple whatsits. Bicycle die. Star bridle rosette. Pocket watch bezel. The smallest thimble I have ever seen. Marbles. Civil war era naval button front. Weslock key. Large sterling ring (marked Theda) with most of the stones missing. And a blob top bottle stopper with bottle (well, part of it).

Coins 071722.jpg

And a number of coins to go with them.

Marbles 071722.jpg


A closer look at the marbles. Love finding marbles. I'm not an expert on marbles but I believe the one in the middle is hand made as it appears to have a nipple on it. Also has play damage, and tons of bubbles. The one on the right I can't figure out. Not sure if it's clay. Doesn't appear to be porcelain. Opaque and not perfectly round.

The thimble could also be a Monopoly game piece.
I was thinking the same at first but I enlarged the photo and it doesn't look like the game piece which I think is even smaller, it looks just like a regular thimble only smaller and the details of it look more functional like a real thimble would be.

I could be wrong and maybe the earlier game thimble pieces had more detail.
