I am not the only one that keeps it all. Got everything listed by what detector found it.

Hard to tell what all you have in some of the photos, but I can tell there's a lot of history in your finds!!!:thumbsupanim

What kind of rocks are in the little plastic bag, I hope you didn't accidently leave your stash in there before you took the photo!! :WOW: :shhhhh: :4chsmu1:

:yesss:  And the desert is a much cleaner place thanks to your diligence on picking it all up. Now much easier to find real goodies with the relics out of the way. Respect big time-John

 This post reminds me of an over zealous minerals manager I once ran in to in El Dorado national forest...he noticed my metal detector laying with my other gear in the back of my pickup and warned me about removing "historical artifacts"....  https://www.nps.gov/archeology/tools/Laws/NHPA.htm

We were in Kansas for 4th of July visiting relatives (380th Anniversary of family coming to America) and came across a beautiful type set drawer in an antique store way out in the country, wanted $20.00 but was 1/2 off that day. My cousin purchased it for my brother. It only cost $40.00 to ship it back home. Ha!

They can be pretty expensive depending on where and who is selling.

Very cool finds! I love those old pick heads. I found a piece of a trap also. Heres some of my more interesting ones hanging on the shop door.

Most interesting (besides the human skull) is the Sperry ball turret access door and machine gun loading instructions.

This is in addition to the box and 5 gallon bucket of misc. stuff :)

Nice finds Bob....   :thumbsupanim

Those blue and green rocks are pretty awesome.

Sometimes I treasure the 'trash' as much as the 'treasure'.

Keep on swingin'...

Luke  :D

I don't know if this an Old Wive's Tale or what, but I was told horseshoes are supposed to hang in the other direction -- to keep the luck from falling out of 'em..

Of course, if ya stop to think about it, just exactly what kind of luck would you be trying to hold in anyhow..? Seems to me neither the animal nor the human(s) involved with that shoe ending up where it was for someone to find later on would consider it being a particularly lucky happenstance at the time.. It makes more sense having 'em hang downward, so the rest of the rotten luck can finish spilling out.. Fresh start n all that that way, ya know..? Not to mention it takes only one nail to hang 'em, instead of two.. Win / win / win..! :4chsmu1:
