Smile Silver Spills And Some Cool Relics At My 1890's Park :)

Hey folks, these are my finds for this week. I went out a few times to my 1890's park, and a little bit of time at a 1930's field. A large majority of what you see came from the 1890's park. I hit an interesting turn of the century dime spill, where I dug an 1892 Barber, and 1899 S Barber, and a dateless Queen Victoria Canadian dime at the 1890's park. I also hit another spill, this one probably from the late 1950's or early 1960's, I dug a couple Washington quarters and a Rosie. And yet another spill was a 1911 V Nickel and a 1915 D Barber quarter, probably dropped sometime in the 1920's. This signal was probably left by others because of it's 5 inch mid thirties junky signal. I thought it was going to be another piece of can or zinc penny. But when I seen the nickel come out, I knew there was a higher conductive signal still inside and I was right. Anyway other highlights include a really nice and rare WWII Army Tank Corps collar disk, and an interesting hunk of iron, that has two sterling religious medals inside it. The hunk of iron was probably a steel necklace that held the medals. I also found some more silver dimes and a few relics and whatnot. Thanks for looking Everyone, have a great weekend, and HH Everyone!

Absolutely amazing. I can’t even imagine those kind of finds at a park!

That hunk of iron with the two sterling pendants is very unique!

That's a terrific group of finds! It would be tempting to try to chip those silver religious pendants out of that hunk of iron rust, but it would probably look cooler just to display it as is. Certainly unique.

I wonder if the rust around those pendants was the chain that they were attached to?

Great group of finds. The pendant inside if the rust ball really shows how non corrosive silver is compared to ferrous metals.

I've put almost 30 hours in the past couple weeks into my 1890's park. I only came up with 3 silver coins in that time. I can't believe how many silvers were left behind in your parks... Good for you though congrats and happy hunting!

Amazing recoveries Ron. The chunk of rust surrounding the Sterling's is something special. Don't think I have ever seen anything like that. I have also found with my experiences that spills sometimes come with very odd numbers. Trapper
