Default Wasn't even on my list of things to find !

Actually don't even have a list.. Saw an area last week that had been cleared of brush and finally got to Check It out yesterday.. First hour or so was just cruising around looking for any thing old. Lots of trash as usual.. Pretty much used to that.. Found a few memorial pennies. Pull tabs screwcaps.. Then I finally started to find some older items , old spoon small pieces of brass. Started detecting this area hard. Finally found a wheat penny.. More shell casings , shotgun cases too. Then I get a really nice signal . Out of the ground comes this large item with two holes in it, odd shape too. Can't see any writing on it, so i rub it like a bottle with a genie in it.. And I see writing on it! First picture is as found, after rubbing on it. Found a marble, an old key, and a really worn mercury. dime.. Here's a picture after a vinegar soak. Dug a lot of holes today check out my trash pile picture ! Really happy to have found this Vehicle registration tag! Tony AZ..

Really nice tag and key. My girlfriend and hunt partner, Sue, is originally from the town listed on the key, New Britain, Conn. which is the home of Stanley Tools and has a huge Polish population earning it the nickname New Britski.

That badge/tag is a beauty. Those "Americana" things look great in shadow box displays ! Evokes lots of nostalgia.
