I return to the Family Home site this time to Sift through the dirt looking for Family artifacts.
Filmed in the Fall of 2019 we uncover a Chauffeur's pin that belonged to my Great Aunt Kathryn's husband William Ernest Thrower.
The pin dates back to 1935-36 # 51927 from California.
a little bit about William Thrower he was a World War I United States Army veteran having served from March 26 1917 to July 2 1919.
Sergeant William E. Thrower 81 Division 324 Infantry, Company K of the American Expeditionary Forces .

kind of a cool old mining bond, i was going through some files and papers and wondered if this ever paid off?
Here is an interesting article that focuses mostly on the Kalgoorlie Gold Rush of 1893. I'm sure there are some here who would have tales to tell of this rush.
I had to stop and contemplate the following occurrences. In the past ~week we've seen/heard of three absolutely historical US metal detecting finds. Idaho Peg discovered that her chunk of silver from Florida's Treasure Coast is quite likely from the 1715 Fleet, one of the two or three most famous treasures found in the Western Hemisphere. 2Valen reports on his multi-year quest for a Civil War cache which preliminarily produces a soldier's possessions including eight gold coins, four of which he is rewarded and displays here. Then Goldbrick tells us about his amazing 1849 privately minted $5 gold piece from the first year of the California Gold Rush. Has this sunk in: 1715 Fleet (lost in a hurricane on its way to Spain) silver coins, US Civil War gold coin cache, and California Gold Rush rare privately minted coin? I don't know what history is still taught in schools but I sure hope these finds represent it. It excites me just reading about these; I can't imagine how I would feel if I were experiencing them first hand! 'Bucket List' labelling doesn't do them justice.
Top that, detectorprospector.com members (and I hope you do).
