Here's one of my best finds for 2007...............
« on: October 22, 2007, 03:52:01 PM »
you might think it's the Morgan Dollar I just recovered - but as much as I love digging up old coins, I love even more digging up tokens and relics - earlier this year I dug up this neat old watch fob :)

On the front it states: WAR MANUEVERS - 1910 - SPARTA, WIS - with a soldier holding a rifle.  On the back it states: U.S. GUARDS - CAMP BRUCE E. McCOY - IOWA.

Boy, wouldn't it be fun to detect that location!!!

A few weeks back when the Iowa Hawkeyes played up at Wisconsin, the announcer said the stadium where the Badgers play (Camp Randall) was a training ground for Union soldiers. 8)

That's a cool piece Jim. I'm like you. Finding old silver is great, but finding something that requires a little research, and has some significant history, especially local, is far more fun..........
