Hey y'all, been busy out there but not finding much. Got permission to mow one place so that may change. Most interesting thing was a little cat pin:
Went to one of my original places today, what used to be a racetrack in the 17-1800s. Unfortunately a couple of detectorists spent 3 weeks there every day, and pretty much wiped it out. No one knows what they found. I did get a Merc there in the spring when they turned it.
I grid searched one area hoping I'd find something, dug some clad (about$1.75) and lots and lots of molten metal, turns out the barn there had burned. Today I got another rein guide, parts of a Rogers silverware spoon, and these things that I wonder if any of you recognize:
The first one is nickel plated brass and somewhat larger than the next, about 2" across. It is heavy and has a threaded hole, and on the other side has holes for pins and obviously fits something precisely:
The next one is a bit smaller (about 1-1/2"):
It has the same threaded hole and less pin holes. I'm thinking rein guide boss, but the threaded holes are conical.
OK Super Sleuths out there. Image search was a dead end, and thats not unusual. Looks like some kind of vehicle badge/emblem? Backside seems to be copper. Found in an agricultural field, northeast USA. I think Gravely tractor uses a capital "G"? But perhaps farm equipment is a red herring. Measures approx 3/4" X 5/8"
A friend of mine has found this US ( identification pendant? ) in a field where was a field hospital during the 1st WW
Location : France / near Braine / approx 100km North East from Paris . Metal alumininum , size approx 40mm .
The soldier name is : WILLIAM S S...... , from Massachussets , unfortunately the name is damaged and cannot be read.
Found with a Vanquish 340
Any help/infos will be greatly appreciated ..
I am digging a pond in SE Virginia, have found no rocks in the area, but hit something large and solid, pumped down the pond and found this rock laying on top of a deposit of dark gray clay. Trying to find out what is made of and if it has any value.
