Thread: New Sites

    New Sites

    Was happy to get a new site yesterday which produced the colonial objects in the picture. The newer things were from another site. The POTUS token was a surface find at a park when I wasn't even detecting
    Today, I got a second new site which looks WONDERFUL...but you know how it goes...you never know until you start detecting.
    Anyone know what that Meteor Gas Co thing is for? Thanks!

    Any idea what the coin is? I think I can see Britannia and a left-facing bust.

    I would guess that the Meteor Gas thingy is the face of a gas gauge but you probably already knew that much. :-)

    Congrats on getting some new sites to detect! They always get our hopes up!

    I agree with Tony it looks to be a gage face plate that had a needle indicator , the copper is a connecticut as i can almost read the "auctori" on the left side of the bust . i'm curious to the item on the far right side of the "group" picture .

    Thanks, Dan!
    That piece is thin. I have no idea what it is.
    That screw thing at top looks familiar, like I've found one before. Thought it was a bottom of a light bulb in the hole.

    Great finds, and wish you the best of luck on the new sites. As for the screw looking thing I think that may be a vacume relief valve. Threads into a pipe or tank and if the vacume overcomes spring tension it'll pull the stem down to let air in. Used a lot on tanks to prevent them from imploding from vacume when emptying while keeping out the elements.

    Next, the gauge face plate I'm 99.9% sure it is from the acetylene tank used for auto headlights. Found this ad from 1911.

    WOW, Chris, that's so interesting!! Thanks so much! I bet an automobile was a rare thing in these parts in 1911. Some of the roads are STILL dirt .
    Thanks again!

    WTG Drew! The screw thingy I would guess is an older style bottle stopper?? Looks like a great site to hit all winter.
