I was going through my collection of recently found treasure, (I’m using the word treasure very lightly here), and decided I would share some of these beauties with you all….enjoy!
Quite a nice little duo found about 6″ from each other, (another reminder to re-check that hole). It appears Tonto got sliced in half and the Lone Ranger lost a foot in the skirmish, but they have great detail and the paint is still intact. I’m sure they’ll look much better after some cleaning.
This piece of thin metal almost got tossed, but a closer inspection with the granny glasses revealed the words “coin silver”. I assume it to be part of an old pocket watch. Found it at a nearby cellar hole I suspect to be a virgin site, and hope to get back to sometime.
Found this silver ring at the beach, it’s condition was pretty bad, and it had a funny tone, so I expected pot metal, but nope, its 925.
This collection of treasure is obviously a very valuable one that the owners are still searching for. Finders Keepers–sorry folks.
the Piano Forte emblem?
This next great collection is titled:
“How many oxen does it take to keep a detectorist busy for hours?”
Make sure to mark your calendars for the dinner party at my house next Sunday. Period attire required, and be sure to arrive early for best flatware selection. Don’t forget to take one of these fab party favors on your way out—>
And…It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out the reason folks had such large families back in the day wasn’t due to lack of effective birth control. It’s obvious, by the amount of broken shoe buckles and lost suspender parts I’ve been finding that it was because they were always walking around barefoot with their pants around their ankles. Just sayin’.
For my final, great recent find–let’s just hope the Conley’s dog was not still attached to this collar when they lost it…
