Default Relics from the field !

Hit an old field today where a home once was. Did great! Bell, '81, '99 indian, '19 wheat, a really cool heel plate, and a ceramic torso of a lady, an aluminum religious pendant , and some aluminum good luck thingy. The bell even still rings!

Bells are one of my favorite relic finds, nice Indians too.

That ceramic torso could be part of a frozen Charlotte, have found several...surface finds no doubt.

My favorite time of year, hitting the fields in autumn!
That torso is a frozen Charlotte doll, look it up

The heel plat is cool. I found one. Seems women of the night. Had them made by blacksmiths. The heel plate would leave the heart print in the dirt roads. It was there calling card. They date to around the civil war.

Very nice finds, I've found a number of Charlotte parts too. I'd say among all of us there's enough pieces to put a few back together. Complete bells are not all that common.

Finding a bell is very cool. Only ones I've ever found were recently dropped cat-bells. LOL

Very nice finds! I love it when the bells still have the ball inside! Being all brass is a nicer bell also, some had an iron loop at the top and are less attractive. Congrats!

Thats really neat. Ive never heard that. This heart plate belongs to a set, like the playing cards. And they were used on kids boots. I have found all four. And way back I was sent a pic of an old newspaper/catalog ad for them. Cant find it right now but
I like your story better.

Thumbs up

Nice find! The bell is called a crotal bell or also known as a petal bell. This dates to about late 1700's early 1800's. It's always great when you find them intact & have them ring again.
