    Keys!!

    The home owners I deal with are soooo pleasant.
    At site A they gave me these keys and clock winders. They were found amongst debris in an old barn. I put the keys with some of mine in a display case.

    I'm not have much luck at site B. The home is a "Better Homes and Gardens" colonial built in 1796. About an acre lawn and a few wooded. Someone brought top soil in for the lawn years ago so not much there...but I can't find much in the wooded areas either. A few hours today produced the child's buckle frame, the IH, and the dog tag. Along with the silver spoon and merc I found last week, this is about all it has given up.
    Thanks!
