More Bama finds..
« on: August 28, 2015, 08:57:37 AM »
So what's with you guys, I know the weather has been decent for the last few weeks up there so where are all the neat finds?
Remember...I am keeping tabs on you midwesterners.
Here ya go, a few cool things from the Alabama devil dirt.

I still only have the use of my right hand but I am able to get out of the wheelchair and hobble around a bit now.
These finds are mostly from the park down the road from me, luckily it is old with some history.

A tax token in the best shape I have found one yet.
A 1911 wheatie and a pocket watch movement from I believe the Chicago Watch Co. that I traced back to somewhere between 1893 and 1905.
Both of these found in the same area where I hope there are still some old coins I can cull from the huge amount of trash and iron where some old homes used to stand.

The harmonica reed and the modern coins were from the same spot but the 77 Kennedy half was taken from my first foray into curb strip land.
I live in a pretty historical neighborhood with blocks upon blocks of old homes built between 1901 and 1940.
All have small curb strips so I have plenty of ground to cover and I will as time goes on and I heal up a bit more.

Still wish I could be there with you guys on the club hunts and for the end of the year festivities but I will do what I can to amuse you from here in the deep south.

HH Y'all!
F70/Mojave/F2/Compadre/Judge 2...2017 finds...Clad, 11 silver targets including a freaking Barber quarter and two V nickels!

Reality continues to ruin my life!

Nice finds !


 thnk1 ....Maybe you should hurry up and hit those curb strips while your banged up.  Maybe the folks will take pity on you,
and not go all "Vulcan" on you for digging in "Their" yard.  lol
