Took the Explorer XS out today

Recommended Posts

Got out this morning and took my Explorer XS for a little walk, found the usual trash , nails , screws and the ever present pull tab.
I got a reading, was deeper than everything else so I dug it up...out of the dirt popped a pocket watch. Turned out to be only the case but still.
I got it home and washed it inside there was writing it said
18% nickel base metal
and had a serial number of 556108
Also has initials...still trying to make them out.
According to research it was made from 1902 to 1930.....not bad for a hunted area.

Neat find. I found one here in Carson City last year at a small park in the middle of town. 

Did some research and found out the park was the homesite of a watchmaker in the late 1800's early 1900's.
