Yep, I went back to the place where I found the Civil War Spur a couple weeks ago. My first target was a mid-tone and I almost didn’t dig it. I dug down about 4 inches, and found a green piece of brass, or so I thought. My first thoughts were that this was part of a rifle. I almost threw it off into the woods, instead I put it in my pocket and went on.
A few targets later I found a 1964 penny and thought “There could be silver here.” A few minutes later I found another coin and got excited, I thought I had silver, but instead it was a 1944 No Mint wheatie.”
I decided to get a drink and pulled that brass circular object out of my pocket and spilled some water on it and rubbed the inside with my finger. That’s when I saw it 14K stamped inside. “No flippin wayyyyyy!” It sure didn’t LOOK gold, but it’s stamped!
I did a happy dance inside, and went back to swinging. A couple targets later I pulled a thimble out from around 5 inches deep. It reads “Weareth that wears, use 1892.” Could it be silver? Is it aluminum? During the 1800s aluminum was rare because of the extraction process… Either way, it’s dated 1892! Finally the sun shined on me on a cloudy day, and I found my first “possible” gold wedding band. When I got it home and cleaned it I noticed that it is inscribed 14K “M to L.”

I believe this ring to be very old considering the relics I am finding there from the 1860s civil war spur and the 1892 thimble.
It just goes to show that you never know what the next target will be.
Happy Hunting, and good luck!
