Default A decent little hunt

I went down to my folks house to pick up my detector after getting back from Alaska.

It's about 95 degrees up here right now so I figured I'd hit up a few shady areas on the way back home.

I went back to the little city park where I dug up the Morgan earlier this year to see if I had missed anything. The first signal I got was jumping from silver numbers to Indianhead numbers so I figured I'd dig it.
To my surprise out pops a 1906 Indian! It ended up cleaning up real nice.

I didn't find anything else there so I decided to hit a curb strip I had detected before to see if I could get anything else.
First signal was a 19944-D wheatie and than a really nice old lipstick tube.

The heat was starting to get to me so I packed it up for the day.

It was a hot one but the Indian made it worth while.

Ugh..... anything past 90 is too hot for me. I think it's supposed to get over 100 tomorrow

Those are some sweet finds. That lipstick tube really conveys a lot of artistry in just a little canister.. Any lipstick still in it? LOL

Love the lipstick tube...I found an inner lining of one this morning, too bad it wasn't silver. I have only found 2 fully intact silver lipstick cases in my "career" both in Hawaii from WWII.

Thanks Skippy! No lipstick left in it so I'm guessing some lady or a trans just tossed it back in the day.
