Default Finally found one

Been seeing these dog tax tags for a long time being posted and always hoped to get one..yesterday I got one,from my town ,Indiana Pennsylvania 1910 dog tax token..need cleaned better tho..also found a war nickel.. I got another good hit and kept digging and digging and couldnít find it..I knew for a fact I had a strong quarter signal and just couldnít figure out why it wasnít in the hole or the dirt pile..gave up on it,stood up and bent down to grab my shovel,there it was stuck to the shovel..

Nice. Early dog tags(pre WWW II) are my favorite 20th century relics to find. Found lots of newer ones but the earlier ones are not common

Love it! I really want to find a dog tax tag as well. Congrats! We just had the stick to the shovel target asked about recently. Pretty funny! I have yet to experience this, but kind look forward to it

Congrats on the nice finds and finally finding an old dog tax tag! I also found a 1910 tag that looks like yours but says Westmoreland county instead...it's really toasted though. Your tag is in awesome shape!

Some very nice digging Pete. Congrats on the war Nickel and the old Dog Tax Tag. I have had that experience of my target being stuck to the shovel a few times over the years. Trapper

Thanks Mark, I like finding relics more than coins I guess..i was using the mx sport, had to take it out and make sure it all worked good before I posted it for sale,,Been sitting for a few months and didn't wanna sell somthing Unless I knew it was still working correctly.

Great old one Wood, and itís legible! It just goes to show that the item doesnít have to necessarily be a coin or silver or even gold to be interesting and worth having! Very nice little historical piece, well done!
