Zincoln's short list

March 07, 2019 09:41PM
Hello all,

The Eagle is most of a Hardee Hat Pin, worn on Cavalry hats during the civil war era. I found it on the old Oregon Military Road. Goes back to our very beginning and makes me think of what is was like here in the 1850s/1860s. Very near to it was an 1859 Canadian large cent. If only it could talk.

The Morgan was found after being invited on a hunt by James (from our forum) - thank you again my friend! He had found a handful of 20's to 40's coins, and i thought i had a beer can....boy was i wrong. Was ringing up between an 89-92, so it made me curious. Like Gregg, i was shocked when i saw the rim exposed on about a 30 degree angle. Later that day the weather exacted its revenge on my V3i, but White's took care of me. Had to pay my dues for that discovery.

The final 3 were found on our WTHO events in Nevada.
1. Barber half - i eyeballed and then ran my coil over it. I like to say it put the 'eye' in V3i. Gregg was just thrilled that I found this and threatened to throw me on the RR tracks.
2. The Bag tag is from the early Transcontinental Railroad circa 1870. Have seen a couple of other examples, but probably my favorite given the history. Gregg and i hardly left our hotel when we found this little gem. He again threated to throw my V3i on the RR tracks.
3. Later that day, near the bag tag, i found my first and only shield nickel - 1867. Gregg again offered to cure my affliction and offer my V3i up to the RR gods.

Anyone sensing a theme:-) Gregg is good luck...or maybe it was Binkers.

Best to all,
