Back To The Spur Spot (hunt #3)


Recommended Posts


Wow that is an awesome collection of early 1900s history! Looks like an active place like one out behind my house. I've pretty much stripped it clean but find stuff there once in a while even now. May even be a small dump for a house. 👍 Bet there are a lot of Mason Jar lids there. 😵

I dug a similar "heads I win" token from Cascarets, it's a laxative. Looks like it was nailed to something for luck 🤣

Very cool photo background, what is it you're putting your finds on?

Thanks buddy yeah theres a lot of Mason jar lids there they sound pretty good too. The background is a rock from rye patch Nevada I bring some of them back when I go up there put them in the garden etc...  This little spot has surprised me I wouldn't think I would have got such cool finds here.

😀 Lots of detectorists are like "oh, a token 🤬". Tokens can be more valuable than coins in some cases. The Cascarets' token is an 86 on Numista. Probably not very valuable but rare. I just wonder what sorta hole it plugged... 🤔
