Default Two Hours....Two Silvers

With two hours to spare between service calls today, I headed out to a baseball field that I was told dates back to at least the 1950's. Finds were good......47 clad coins worth $3.93, plus a 1944 Mercury Dime and a sterling silver religious medallion. I also dug the patriotic looking belt buckle that's dated 1986 on the back. Strong wind and HAIL put an end to the hunt.

Congrats on a good hunt under very bad weather conditions. Our power was out here from 12:30 PM till 8:00 PM. High winds and snow showers. I didn't hunt yesterday at all. GL & HH.

Man thats good digging for 2 hours, you were moving on to get that. Nice finds for sure. Belt buckle says "Great American Products" might be a union belt buckle of some kind from 36 years ago. Here are 2 vintage ones selling on line right now. 1 for 55 00, 1 for 25.00.

Thanks, the back of the buckle says "copyright 1986". The buckle was only down about an inch and a half. I was moving at a good pace but not nearly as fast as when I was heading for the car when the hail started coming down

Congrats on the silver! How does somebody lose a beltbuckle on a ballfield?
