    Spring digs with freemindstuck and driftwood1963

    My Spring finds have proven worthy so thought I would post up for my first time here on the american detectorist.
    Hunt most of the time with my friend freemindstuck and my dad driftwood1963.

    great finds in my book ! the "horseshoe" lock is a very cool relic and the petal bell is a super example , is there any numbers or initials on the bottom that may date it??
