    Found it in someone’s front yard. Is there any way to date these? I don’t mean taking it out on a date.��

    Drew it's a love token done on a silver Canadian Vicky 25 cent piece. Late 1800's.

    The pic I have is dated March of 2012. I joined AD in 2013. I don't see that I posted it on Friendly or T Net either. Since those were my days with the DFX, I am guessing I probably posted it the Whites Forum.

    I missed Noah's 2nd post
    I'm no expert but I think those heart heal plates are 1800s ...I've heard all kinds of stories about them...example- women would want to "advertise services" by leaving prints...but I've always found them out in fields where men would be wearing them, and they are large... but again, I'm the last person to be assigning any historical "data."

    When a woman would get engaged, she would get a club, knock her man out then stomp him as hard as she could in the forehead. He would be branded for life with that heart and no other woman would have him. I read that on Facebook so you know it has to be true.

    I think I got an "altered" large c*nt in the same town. But that's not proof of the illicit stories. It's fun to speculate though.

    I have been detecting so long that Merry Widow's ended up in the trash. Now, they're good finds. LOL!

    You made me look up dates on these things...they're newer than I thought. They were sold up into the 1930s.

    Speaking of Merry Widows, I recall a post from some years back where someone was detecting at the grounds of a seminary and found a couple of dozen Merry Widows tins.

    Are you surprised? I'm not. There are men there. No perfect human being alive.
