1860 Federal Navy Button & Silver


Recommended Posts

Was up at 230am this morning and could not go back to sleep. Cruised the forums until I took the better half to work at the hospital at 530am, then headed over to an old park here in town. Scored a few nice keepers including the 1860 Scovill Federal Navy button, a 1936 Mercury dime, 1942 nickel, and four Wheats. I’m not sure on the age of the Corgi toy, but I am very happy with my two-hour hunt this morning.

Hi Terry.

Those are really great fun finds! Everything seems in very good shape. Thank goodness for the dry climate.

My weekend finds were a tad less than spectacular. I was out looking for coins or whatever, and found 2 bottle caps, a ring with link, and what looks like pieces of the sole of a shoe with the nails still in it. The second photo shows a broken or snapped braided steel cable loop. I found it by sight buried in leaves and pine needles. Weird looking thing; like a wire sculpture or something. I posed it on the stump for the photo.

Never found the hoped for coins! Next time...
