Default Big Iron and Finally Some Silver I Think

Howdy All - Hit the farmsite again and found some even more varied items:

Axe Head
Buckle
Siver?? Spoon (Campbell Standard w Monogram)
Harmonica pcs
5 Head Stamps (2 UMC NC 12, 1901 NR 12, Win NR 12, UMC NC 10)
Old Pressure Cap
2 Silver Plate Spoons (H & T Company)
Square Spike
Pocket Watch Back (The E Ingram Co; Bristol Conn)
Assorted Glass

I about flipped when we dug up the Ax Head it weighs a good 12-LBs, I don't see how they hefted and swung it. It was so massive the Pro-Pointer saw it 10-IN down.

I AM NOT SURE IF THE CAMPBELL STD SPPON IS SILVER. HOW DO I TELL??

A farout and solid two hours of digging, over 40% of our holes had good relic finds. Coins are great and I love to find 'em but I am becoming a relic junkie.

Thanks for the visual and may the fines be with you.

Those are some great relics! I love the axe head. It is awesome. I have found three so far (of course my in-laws property had a logging camp on it at one time back in the late 1880's).

You are right, that is a nice variety. I much prefer relics to coins.

Sweet relics! That piece of spoon is certainly silver. Nice job.

Thanks for the replies. Found 6 more stamps today, two new ones for me a Winchester Nublack 12, and an unfired REM-UMC New Clug 20.

Nice digs! Does it say Paul Bunyan on that axe somewhere? Did you find a giant ox shoe?
