  2. Another once-in-a-lifetime find!

    Hello friends,
    I'm sure you are sick of me posting all these finds but I have to share them with someone! I went back to meet my friends in the Swabian Alps again on Saturday. It's a 3 hour drive...

    Wow, that merc really is worn out! The horse and buggy pin is quite nice looking and very unique. Have you found any information about it?

    Wow, great assortment of finds! I'm torn as to which is my favorite though. I like the bridle shield but I also really like that button with all the gold gilt and square patterns.

    Wow, you each got 2 silver coins, an Indian, and a sterling ring! Were you racing each other! LOL

    Great finds! That SLQ was an EARLY drop for sure. With all that silver I wouldn't even care about the condition of the indians!

    I'm not familiar with that back mark, sorry. Your pictures won't upload if they are bigger than 2mb each. I always have to crop them down before they will upload for me.

    I saw this button on Facebook the other day. The only thing I can think of is it somehow relates to two British pubs, the Crocodile and the Porcupine. Perhaps they had some type of partnership and...

    Tony, it has the typical shank but no backmark.

    I thought the exact same thing Del. It wouldn't surprise me if the reverse of our large cent was copied from this button (considering...

    Medieval Horseshoe

    Hello friends,
    Yesterday I found an older horseshoe. It spent the night in my electrolysis tank and this morning I cleaned it up, baked it and coated it in paraffin. Looking through my horseshoe...
  11. Found a bucket list button today!

    I found an amazing French Revolution Army button today! I took a friend detecting at the 1794 battle site about 3 miles from my house. He is new to detecting so I was "showing him the ropes." I...

    My guess is the spoon (?) was silver plated and even had fake hallmarks to make it look even more convincing. Real silver hallmarks would not have been allowed. That's just my guess though, I don't...

    Noah, you can get a 10% "acquaintance" discount! :rofl:

    Thanks Tony, when I dug it I was 99% sure it was going to be another musket ball since it rang in as a scratchy 83 on my deus. Once I had it out of the hole, I thought it was a tiny buckle of some...

    I agree the styles might be related. I looked at Luckenbooth pictures and it looks like they mostly date to 1700's. I noticed the pins tend to be on the back of the brooch but I did find one or two...
  16. Amazing little ring brooch I found today!

    Hello friends,
    Today I went detecting for 3 hours at the 1734 battle site (the French trenches I hit a couple months ago). Not many signals but I did see other dig holes and there was usually a...

    It's a shame field coppers always look so bad. Nice picture of the butterfly too.
  18. Last signal of the day = Silver Spill!

    Hello friends,
    I spent 5 hours trudging through the forest and only found the odd musket ball and a couple of flat buttons. I was just about to give up and go home when I got a decent signal next to...

    Well, not your best day ever but at least you didn't get skunked! Looks like a nail was lying on that spoon handle. You should shine it up and then eat your favorite cereal with it!

    You're absolutely right Del! This rang up like a puny nail. A more modern piece that same size would be a screamer (or should I say a grunter).

    Wow Drew, Your "sampler" looks like most peoples bucket list that they never even find half of those coins! Although I must admit a Susan B. Anthony dollar was NEVER on my list! LOL.

    I'm not much of an expert but I do know it is different settings for dry sand and wet sand. I'm sure there are videos on YouTube that show you the settings for each. Good luck and I hope you find...

    Tony, I have learned it is the impurities in iron that cause it to rust (contact corrosion). Medieval iron is so pure it comes out of the ground with very little rust. When I dug this up all 4...
