I have only one piece of advice, go buy a couple lottery tickets! 👍😀

Clark thats good advice and I think I'll take it since I'm on a streak right now. Funny thing is I don't consider myself lucky. My mom on the other hand is always winning at bingo.... seems like every other week she's taking home over 1k in winnings lol.  Me I don't gamble....even if theres a fifty/fifty chance I usually come out on the short end of the stick. I've always had the "hard work gets rewarded" type of attitude. When I told Lisa what the coin appeared to be she got a serious look on her face said I deserved it lol. Now if you believe all that I got an Island out in the middle of the desert I'll sell you. :biggrin:

My Gold fox is supposed to be here tomorrow

Hi Strict,

Beautiful places to detect, love just getting out to those scenic historical sites, the finds are icing on the cake 🙂

Great spots, black powder flasks, buckles, and seateds, doesn't get better than that on the west coast.

Congrats to your friend on the seated quarter! That 1918 over 1917 SLQ is a great find!  Probably not what you're looking for at gold rush era camps, but I'd take it any day 🙂

The sunray thing is pretty cool, not sure what exactly it is though.  That buckle you found with the nipple in the center, I found something similar to that recently, do you think that's a horse tack buckle?

That rectangular metal item next to the license plate tag I believe may be a scale weight.  Does it have any writing on it?  I found one, and I believe it was marked with the weight in grams, it was ID'd as an apothecary weight, but they were more likely using it to weigh gold IMO.

Congrats again on saving so much history!
Brian

Chuck, you have really been tearing it up lately. My only thought is what magnificent finds you may have produced if you had only been swinging the best detector, the Deus?

Signed,

Thanks Cal...im sure the buckel is off a halter...the rectangular thing is a small pad lock. It has writing on it but hard to discern...will tumble it. I have found a couple scale weights in the past. All the stuff in that picture includind the quarter were found close to where i live. Now if i can only figure out the sun god thing. Probably not very old as im finding lots of modern clad in this spot.

The way the sun's rays alternate between straight and wiggly reminds me of Inti, the Incan Sun God; here's an example:

It appears there has been a lot of artistic license taken in reproducing this image.  Maybe your find is one of them.  Also the face reminds me of man-in-the-moon images:

Maybe what you found is someone's depiction of a solar eclipse.

GB Amateur- thanks for the leg work. Your research and knowledge is invaluable to us here on this forum. Oh and dont let me leave out your enthuasium 😊

Deus Fan boy- The XP Deus is hard to beat in the a trashy relic environment. Your expertise with this machine make the two of you an un beatable pair....which is why I do my best to hunt out a spot before I take you there 😁 and yet you still are able to pull good finds from all these hard hit areas.  I still remember your remarkable words of wisdom.... "Nails are your friend"

Till the next hunt...

      Had a great time hunting the old 1850's site again today. Found a lot of fired lead along with a bucket lister and my oldest silver coin to date, an 1852 seated half dime. This is the first silver coin to come out of this place since we've been hunting it for the last few months. We both knew there was one hiding in there somewhere :-). Running the 800 with the 11 inch coil. My settings were as follows:. Park 2, recovery speed set at 6, iron bias 0, this time I performed a manual ground balance, sensitivity set at 18, 2 tones .

      A friend and I spent a couple days swinging around a couple junk filled ghost towns. I am very familiar with the Xp deus. I had also brought with the new to me Xp ORX. I spent my time swinging both the deus/ORX with the 9 Hf, 9x5Hf and my LF 11x13 coils. I found some good stuff and was really able to put the new ORX to work. I kept the ORX equipped with the 9x5hf coil. Deus with 9Hf coil. Also have my 11x13 on a straight shaft to easily switch to that. These site have been hit hard over the last few years by me and a ton of other people and have seen 3 to 4 large group hunts. Heres a few pics

      I asked and got permission to hunt an old yard in the older part of town.  I was told that it had been detected several times over the years and a $20.00 gold coin was found there about twenty years ago. I said that technology had gotten better and I would like to try my chances. I was very pleasantly surprised with this coin

      Weather was just too nice not to camp this weekend here on the Wet side of WA. Off to a older camp ground that once had a apple orchard with a few old trees left. Zillions of pull tabs and can slow, but managed to pull a pile of coins including the 64 and 53 Silver Rosies. The silver came in on the first day, 20 minutes apart.  I don't think I have ever had a 2 silver day, and the nox was pulling deep for our stupid soil. 

      Thanks for looking, and HH

      Got out with the Equinox again to do a little civil War era hunting. I hunted a fort that was occupied from 1851 thru 1862. I dug a lot of trash but I managed to rescue a few keepers.

      Hi guys. Here's some finds made with the Eqx 8000 on monday. Was pretty happy with the outcome. One Chinese coin and the Broach was in some fairly hot ground under some rocks and mineralised clay from an old lead throw out heap. Around 8 or so inches roughly. I like the 800 but it really is screaming out for a 10 inch elliptical or similar. Some type of solid coil.
