Old Homestead Hunt

I returned an old homestead that I have hunted in the past. This time I detected an area that I missed last time. I was hunting beside a large tree when I got a nice Zinc signal on the F5, so I dug it and this is what it was!

WWII General Service Button

These buttons are always fun to find, and can help date an area that you are hunting. After finding the button I wandered back to another large tree where I found a silver dime on my previous hunt there.

I found both of these wheat pennies in the same area as the silver dime. I was happy to dig a couple of old coins and had hoped for more silver, but at the end of the day, I still had fun!

The pocket watch was an interesting find. I searched for the rest of it, but this is all I was able to find.

The weather was great, the sun was shining, and the birds were singing. All in all it was a great day outdoors while Metal Detecting!

  1. Nice digs Rob. I have found that button as well but never knew what it was. Yours certainly has a nice gilt on it still. There must be some additional silver there?

    Last night I watched an episode of “Diggers” and got a kick outta them saying how hard it is to find coins from the 1700’s as they dug 2 of them. Yeah, of course it’s hard ( I have found a few ) but not so hard when you are on virgin, revolutionary war sites unavailable to the general public like us!
