Default New Month New Field New Finds

We finally started harvesting a field I been wanting to detect but I only had an hour after work. Found a few interesting things in that short time. The brass item turns out to be part of a hernia truss belt from the late 1800's. I found my second Merc and my 30th D buckle. Only scraped the surface I hope.

You never know what the heck you will find and the hernia truss takes the cake of oddities found in a field

That ad is almost too risque for that era, kind of disgusting, none the less a cool find. Imagine having to wear that thing all day.

Great finds!

And....welcome to the exclusive Hernia Truss Parts Recovery Group! (I have a suspicion that there aren't many of us in the group...)

You may be right about that. Another thing that will surely be added to everybody's bucket list.

I didn't really notice at first and when I did I thought the same thing. They must get away with it being it a medical device. IDK

As founding member and president, I will ask that all submissions be forwarded to the HTPRG treasurer and vice-president (Reelfoot)
