Time has blessed you with some fabulous recoveries. Congrats on what I would refer to as real Eye Poppers. Can you give us a little more history on the Oil Lamp? Jack

Hemicharger. I have NO idea if yours is included. You need to find Bottlemike in Detroit. He might be VERY interested!

Never valued the Good for 5.00 in gold token.

The 10.00 gold piece was found in a park in Utah. All I can say is DIG DEEP zinc penny signals.



OK, I know Bottle Mike from Detroit. THANKS.

Thanks all.

Jack&Jill The oil lamp was made in Detroit. Sprague Waldo Manufacturing Company. All I can find is the company went out of business in 1915. I found it in a lake near Detroit. Maybe someone had it on a boat? It was deep.

That is all I know about it.

Here is a picture of some newer finds.



WW1 Practice bomb From around 1917 - 1921 I have recovered 4 now
Springfield Trap Door Bayonet
Taurus 357 Magnum with 6" bbl. Dumped in a lake in the 70's
WW1 Lewis Machine Gun Magazine with 6 live shells left

I wanted to add my second Lewis machine gun magazine I found last year to this collection. This one has 26 unfired bullets in it.

No. It was found in a park in the middle of Salt Lake City. It rang up as a 5" deep zincoln and that is probably why everyone left it alone.
