No old coins but did find silver :-)

I hit an old sports field that unfortunately had been covered with fill so I hit the woods where people had camped in the late 1800s. It has been a while since I found a coin there but luckily I was and was reminded of the old dump while walking the creek. I found the spoon on the bank next to an old piece of tin fashioned into a plate.

Nice hunt! Silver is silver even if it is bent out of shape. I enjoy finding old silverware. Its a great item that gives fantastic clues to the time period and also gives great hope to other non-ferrous items. I bet my E800 there is more non-ferrous just waiting to be found :smoke:



Fear is paralyzing and courage is liberating. No matter what is put in front of you, there is always a way to make it work.

Dreams are just dreams, goals are dreams with deadlines. The desire to succeed comes from within. Stay focused on your goals, and if people say that you can’t do something, get them out of your life and move on.

Thanks again Earthlypotluck. It is always cool when you find them in out of the way locations like the middle of the woods. They didn't have disposable plastic silverware like we do now :)

More good finds for you, Foreverteachable! It looks like there is some engraving on your silver spoon. Best of luck and...

Happy Hunting!

Good eye there Nagant! I had an ID that yet but I knew it was something different I never found anything like it thanks for pointing it out. I also want to add that it actually had a punch on either side of it instead of one like you see on a 22 cartridge
