Another adventure.

So a few days ago I get an email from Bob W. ( Rdunzl) and he asks me if I ever tried this site around "Lost" I said that we have, Zincoln & I took 4 Wheelers back in there and worked around a bit, but other than some doodads, didn't get much.

So today with nothing to do, I saw Bob's email again and decided I would go up there and give it another go. If anything it was an excuse to load the 4 Wheeler and the dogs and me could have some 4 wheelin fun.

Got up there and trekked back in there with the 4 wheeler and did some detecting. I just took the Racer 2 with 7" coil just to explore around and see if I could find anything that might indicate an old site was here. Then to top it off I left my headphones back in the pickup, so had to do it the old fashioned way.

I detected around for about 2-3 hrs. I did finally start to find some broken glass and nails etc. So I worked that area a bit and finally got a good little high tone. I dug my target and then did my happy dance smiling smiley I never thought for a moment that I would be going home with a rare Oregon trade token. Prob will be my best find for the year...........

It isn't listed in the go to Oregon Hemphille Token book... it's an unlisted token. It shows the other denominations but not this one. On the Token Catalog.com site, it shows it as a "known" token but also shows it as unlisted.

I did get a $200 offer for the token from a Token collector guy that I emailed for some info. But I politely declined. He did say it is a rarer one.( He did state he has all the other denominations of that token except the 10 cents one. ) it seems to be the rarest of the lot.

Anyhow that made for an exciting day and if you know me, ya know i love tokens......so it was a very exciting day.

Well Bob W. if ya make it back to my neck of the woods, the BloodyMary's are on me ( Bloodymary is a code word for Dr. Pepper Floats smiling smiley
