Another Standing Liberty Quarter / Casted Copper Arrowhead

I got a bit of local detecting in part of the weekend in between yard work.
I found what appears to be a large casted copper arrowhead out of a small town park.
Any and all opinions are welcome on that one.
It was about the last thing I expected to see but that is why I metal detect.

Another highlight was to pull a very deep 2nd year (1917) standing liberty quarter. I just hooked the fringe of high tone signal and got it to repeat both ways.
I included a pic of when I dug it. My orange garret pin pointer is exactly 9 inches for a scale on how deep it was.

The Delegate medal was every bit as deep as the quarter. I am thinking it is the top section of a North Dakota Delegate badge as ND is the "Flickertail State".
The bottom section was nowhere to be found.
Tornado Coil was used for all finds shown.

Coin Finds
1917 Standing Liberty Quarter
1944 Mercury Dime
1920 Buffalo Nickel, 1946 Jefferson Nickel
1888, 1900 Indian Head Pennies
11 Wheat Pennies back to 1916

Non Coin Finds
Large Copper Arrowhead or Spearhead
ND Delegate Medal
1911 Boy Scout Button
Clock or Winding Key
Music Pin
Miraculous Medal

Great finds. That arrow head is curious, wonder what the story was on that one? Especially like the delegate badge. Any idea what year it's from?

Mike, it dawned on me late last night. This delegate badge is the top part of the 1913 fireman's badge I found a couple months ago!!
I stopped at that same park this weekend and was within 5 feet of where I got the original. Both were super deep and I barely picked them up.

Hey FPD,

Great Great finds. That is very cool you completed the badge.

2 years ago I found a late 1800s to early 1900s Captains fireman's badge that I come to find out was missing the trumpets in the middle. I went back to the area I found the badge and within a few hours found the center piece.

As always I look forward to your next finds.

Congrats on those great finds and especially that missing piece from the badge. That just doesn't happen very often.

Dave, that's amazing tose two pieces came together after all that time. Beyond cool! I finally realized what your arrowhead reminded me of... I have seen pointed fineals in decorative iron gates.




Great bunch of finds.

Really a nice bunch of finds there Dave. Very cool about the two piece medal getting back together after all these years. Always like an SLQ because they come along on rare occasions for me.
