Thread: Trime !!!!!!!

  1. #1

    Trime !!!!!!!

    Here are some pics of my recent finds over the last few weeks, highlighted by my first silver 3 cent piece that I found today! Found it in a NH field on a group hunt. It's an 1853. I cannot believe how small they are...I thought it was a cuff button and looked more closely and my jaw dropped. It did not ring up as silver...more like a penny (that year is only 75% silver and 25% copper). The compact is a 1930's Art Deco Hawaiian Hula Girl "Tattoo" make up compact...I thought that was pretty cool. The silver pin is the official seal of the town of Salem, MA. It was deep and old....I thought it was a Real when I first dug it!

    Thanks for looking an HH.

    Where's the trime? Hiding under one of the buttons?

    EDIT: Ah, I just saw your Part II thread. I merged the two threads.

    Congrats on the terrific finds, especially the wonderful TRIME! It hardly has any wear on it at all!

    Nice find. Still looking for one of those, however I do know they are small. That Salem button is intriguing. Any research on it yet?

    Congrats on the 3 center! Nice set of finds you have there, including the petal bell. Those always rank high on my list.

    Well the pin, about the size of a quarter, is simply the Salem MA official town seal...nothing more or less. It says "sterling" on the back. The town seal was not adopted until 1836 so the pin is obviously from some time after that. It was quite deep in an old field and looks pretty old, so I don't think it was a recent drop. That said, you could probably go to Salem and find something similar in a store I would guess. With dirt still on it in the hole it looked just like the 1751 One Reale Pistareen that I found last year. Oh well...maybe next time! Still happy to have it though.

    Think I have the answer to the spoon identity. Maker is Newell Harding.

    Thanks Drew. I haven't really cleaned the bell too much yet. I guess sometimes you can find a number or even a maker's mark. I guess I'll have to clean it up a bit and see what might be there. It's only the second one I have found and the first with that distinctive design on it.
