Default New spot

Got onto a 1910 property last week. Two days has got me about a dozen wheats, a 45 cinco centavo, a Shell presidential token (second one Iíve found here in Bryan), a strange looking buckle and a key chain from a hotel in Houston that opened up in 1929. I assume itís been there a while since it was in the very back of the property about six inches deep. A buddy in Austin may go with me in the near future so Iím trying to snag any silver before he gets there. Big yard so Iíll probably be at it for a while. Thanks for looking and HH.

It does, but changed names in the 80s.

Man, I LOVE that key chain! The image on the front is from a famous Texas painting that is in the Texas State Museum (the Bullock Museum). Here's a link to the picture -

That's not very nice, snagging all the silver before he gets there,
