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?

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.

    That’s some really nice finds. I just got back into detecting and magnet dragging. In the last nine months I have accumulated thousands of relics, alot of which I’m not sure what they are. Nice to see a wall that looks like mine.
