Beat Up, But Cool Campaign Stud

Recommended Posts

I was playing around with the Vanquish 440 in the parking strip yesterday afternoon, when I got a very strong consistent signal in the 4 -6 range. I haven't been digging many signals in this range, as I don't get many, and all I have dug, have been trash. This one was strong and not choppy at all, so I proceeded to dig.

Glad I did!

I pulled out a James M. Cox presidential campaign stud from the 1920 presidential election. His running mate was Franklin D. Roosevelt!  They lost to the Harding - Coolidge ticket.  This is pretty degraded, but cool to find just the same. Gonna have to go back and dig those lower signals!  I've included a picture of one in good condition.

Nice!  You're definitely a dig-it-all detectorists if you're down there well below USA nickels.  Have you started an aluminum foil collection yet?  😁  You are going to find gold jewelry down in that zone, too.  And maybe even a nickel 3-cent piece (which TIDs somewhere around 6-8 on the Equinox).  Keep it up!

      Managed a couple keepers at a new site last week including an 1863 CW Patriotic token with "Army and Navy" on one side and an engraving of the Capitol building on the reverse.  A little crusty but I'll take it.  A fishing weight carved from a lead minie ball, another lead fragment, and a large flat button.  Enjoyed the hunt though it was a balmy 95F out there.  Snagged the token and lead with my GPX and the flat button with my Deus.  Cheers.

      This is from the lumbering days in Michigan. It would be hammered into the end of a log and logs were floated in lakes and rivers. This one must have broke when they were hammering on it. I was in Pickerel Lake detecting. http://mauriceeby.org/My_Books_files/Great Lumbering Era 4.pdf
      When I was a kid this was a boys camp. Now it's a county camp ground. I was detecting in the water where the beach is. That's a native Brook trout stream running thru it.

      So I've been getting a lot of clad coins with both the Equinox and the Vanquish 440 in the local parks, but even in the older ones, silver coins have escaped me for a couple of months now.  In between thunderstorms this afternoon, I hit the neighbor's parking strip, and in less than ten minutes, I pulled two silvers and a wheatie!  My first silver quarter, AND my first Canadian silver. The quarter is pretty trashed, but I'm glad just the same!
      Felt good to break the slump!

      Weather has been awesome. Stopped at new site on way home from work for brief hunts and both Saturday and Sunday between family time and usual chores like mowing the lawn. 
         I’m quite efficient at cleaning up my finds and putting them in my display and almost never post before I do. Among my favorites shown is the spur ( my first ) the brass sash buckle which may be 18th century military, the big toy car,  the big iron spoon and model T door handle.

      Found this Crackerjack Mystery Club coin yesterday with the Vanquish.  These were distributed from 1933 to 1934.

      First time on the beach so it was a new experience for me. The Vanquish ran very quiet over the dry and wet sand. I was able to run the sensitivity maxed 99% of the time. No great finds but did get some deep and some small targets. I ran in the jewelry mode with 1 notched out. Couple opals found about 15ft. apart I'm sure they came from the same piece of jewelry. A sterling earring back along with another small silver(?) piece off something and a fake coin that I at least said hmmm when I first dug it Lol . Plenty of clad coins. I almost (almost) quite digging those 10 plus inch zinc signals but it was a good experience. Thanks for looking! Tom
