Not going into details, but a site I have had my sites on recently opened up and I was all over it. This place is trashy and old. Foot traffic was here in 1780s, maybe earlier. That’s old for my area. I got down to business and quickly started pulling clad.
The first decent find was a Ford family crest key fob:
The next good signal ended up being a mid 1800s button. It was funny b/se there was a smashed beer can. I debated on cleaning it up, but thought about the detectorist’s code – clean up all trash. Under that was the button signal, lol. It pays to clean up!
The last signal was a dandy. It rang like a can lid. I dug the plug and saw what I thought was the edge of the top of a lid. It ended up being a silver bracelet (well, I still have to test, but sure looks good). It looks to have hand stamped markings and the maker’s mark stamp is something I have never seen:
I will be going back b/se new ground keeps opening up!
