    Visiting An Old Permission

    Went out to one of our old permissions on a warmer overcast day. We ended up having a pretty good day, Diane found two tokens, a decorative lid and a buckle. I got a star studded clip, double bitted axe head, cobbler’s shoe form for a child size shoe a Goodyear Rubber button. I got a repeatable signal on my Deus and dug which at first thought was going to be a pull tab but with a bit more removing some dirt I had a suspicion so I went over to Diane to show her and put a bit of water on it she said “Think its a Trime” which confirmed my suspicions! It is very small, it is very Silver, it is very bent and I am very happy!

    Love those signed tokens. With that denomination it is likely a bar, saloon or billiard hall.

    Congrats on the wonderful finds, Tony and Diane!

    Do you think the Trime was bent that way intentionally? I have read that when men were going away for a while, to war or whatever, they would bend a coin like that and give it to their wife as a way to remember them. The coin would be bent as a reminder not to spend it accidentally. I'm not 100% certain that is the case with your Trime but it is a possibility.

    I like the star-studded clip too. It looks really old.

    Nice hunt. Was the rubber button an eyeball find or did the detector hit on the small metal piece embedded in the back?

    Very nice finds Tony. I have to agree that how does a plow find that tiny piece of silver and then manage to position it just so to bend it????
