‘The Railroad’ Overalls Button

– I also found these other overalls buttons.

Eurotek Pro Find

Tuf Nut Overalls Button – Eurotek Pro Find

The overalls button was found at an old homesite in an area that hasn’t produced much in the past. The Eurotek Pro metal detector found it easily at around 6 inches deep. The Tuf Nut Garment Company produced overalls, pants, shirts and “autoals” for the working man. The garments were proudly made of 100% southern cotton. Circa 1930 – 1970.

Good Luck "Coin" w Nail?

Good Luck “Coin” w Nail?

This coin or token has a nail through it and leads me to believe that it may have been nailed to a door or doorframe. I found it within feet of a door at an old homestead.

    Rob, great post. Especially enjoyed the history and stories behind each item. Must say in all my years I never really looked into all the non coin items I found, and given my limitations now maybe it’s time to do that. Thanks for a good read….

    Great Hunt and cool finds! I think the pig is a large toy…we have found small ones but nothing that big! Very cool! Thanks!
