Default Matron madness! Old silver! NSFT

Hey everyone, got out yesterday and Saturday both for a few hours each. Netted a matron at each spot we hunted, and also late in the hunt I got a silver spoon bowl. If anyone has any info on the mark that would be saaaaweeeet! The spot it was found was settled in the 1750's and most of the coins from the area (found in previous hunts ) were from that timeperiod also. Also have a few other relics not pictured. A knee buckle and a few flat buttons. I'll maybe be out this weekend, until next time thanks for looking and happy hunting!

Oh the 3rd matron appears to have been shot, flattened, and cut

Congrats on the Big penny's and Silver Jeff. The cut coin is very hard to view any detail. The other two look to be in pretty good shape. I am no help for the Sterling Soon Bowl hope an other can help. You are diffidently on a old site. Trapper

The mark on the spoon looks like a bird. Turn it side ways.

Maybe not but its what I am seeing.

Some great finds.

Looks like a fancy knee buckle there. Nice.
