  1. Might be a Antique Copper Soldering Iron.
  2. I also had the privilege of writing for the magazine. I also miss their Annual Silver and Gold issues which were one of the best at the time. I had a couple photographs (not of me) that made the cover of the magazine. Sure do miss having having a hard copy, hate reading off a tablet or phone. Here are the two issues that the two photographs I had submitted made the cover of the magazine.
  3. Dang! that's a whopper Congrats.👍
  4. Our thankful nugget is not the many gold wire and leaf specimens I and my wife have recovered over 30+ summers here in Colorado but being able to experience all the good and bad times we spent detecting those prize specimens. The memories and stories that we are able share make it seem just as exciting and satisfying as the day we found them. Here is a recent wire gold specimen I finished cleaning and mother nature was sure in rare form we she created this one:
  5. Really good video from Gary Blackwell: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g8yNa0oQFs&ab_channel=xpmetaldetectors
  6. Glad you had a great time, detecting a site like this can discourage a lot of people because amount of trash. I think all of us are still learning something every time we are out detecting, at least me anyway. I think the more hours we put on these detectors, great finds will come our way.
  7. Outstanding finds👍, hopefully you can come back sooner rather than later to hunt that area again.
  8. Thanks for the compliment. The tokens are aluminum, I found the same tokens more than a decade ago at this site that were in better shape, I didn't find a 25 cent one this time which would made a complete set. The miner's tag is iron and I eyeballed that tag, since it had a number on it I couldn't leave it there to eventually rust away. Digging a lot of large sounding targets on these last two outings hoping there might be a railroad lock or some other unique item. Anyway it's great to see this site come alive again.
  9. Thanks F350 and Againstmywill for the information. I sure needed Saint Benedict (catholic medal of exorcism against evil) help that day because that was evil and brutal.👿
  10. I soak the items in hydrogen perxiode to remove most of the dirt that were in the first set of photos. Then I used Andre' pencils on the items shown in the second set of photos with the exception of the Barber dime. The Andre pencils do a great job on cleaning corrosion on items such as copper, brass and aluminum. The area that is available to hunt is very large in size, I measured it on Google Earth and it is a 1/3 of a mile wide and 3/4 mile long. The area where the houses, stores, school and mine buildings are located measures about 1000 ft wide and 2400 ft long. We were very surprised on the amount of non-ferrous targets that were still in ground, maybe being masked by the large amount of iron on top and below the surface.
