    Last month's finds

    Hi all,

    Not much in the find department worthy of a post, but I have a few goodies.

    Old trashy permission - 1923 wheat and a suspender buckle (I think). Not very good with buckles/buttons. Hardest detecting area I have. It is riddled with nails. Found about 50-75 square nails in 2 hours. Multiple in each hole.

    2nd photo is a park hunt - I have been finding bullets like crazy this year. Couple wheaties, old drawer pull is what I guess, toy gun.

    3rd - park hunt. 1909 wheat, 40s wheats and 2 no dates

    4th - permission from oldest house I detect - Sportman's button (I think these are 1830-40s). 2nd one I found at this site. Starting to dig the really iffy signals, but there are things popping up on this site again. I think the frost heave did a great job for me this last winter.

    5th - 3 hour park hunt. 1896 and 1903 Indians, wheats, 39 Merc, SS ring, and an unlimited hugs charm (not silver). Good luck out there!

    Some nice goodies for sure. Finds have really been getting slim in our region lately as I think I only have maybe 2 or 3 wheaties this year. Even water hunting the lake last week only netted a single clad quarter.
    Equipment:
    Minelab: CTX 3030, GPX 4800, X-Terra 705. Whites TDI SL.

    2024: Silver 1, Gold 0
    Best finds: 28 silver dime spill, 1800s Dutch customs seal.
    Oldest/best coins: Late 1700's Chinese Cash Coin, 1837 Upper Canada large cent, 1877 Seated Dime
    Oldest Relic find: 1800 Sailors Luck token

    I think that buckle is a cinch back pants buckle, they went out of style by the 1920s.

    Thanks guys.

    Drew - Thank you for the info! Good to know and it fits the period. House was built in 1890s and tore down in the 1950s.
