My finds....including an old dirty "washer"

June 08, 2020 03:04PM
First off, thanks Monte for the great event. Wish you were feeling better. Secondly thanks for the t-shirt (Andrew?). Can I send some money for the shirt? It was great. It was great meeting everyone again or for the first time. I had an awesome time.

I got in midday thursday. I ate lunch headed to Cobre. I used the Equinox with 6 inch coil. Nothing of importance really found the half day thursday.

Friday, I was pretty much at Toano all day. Thanks to Lance for helping me with my Deeptech Vista X with 5.7 inch coil. It was the first time using it. I pretty much used it all day. I did dig quite a bit of tin but managed a Good for 10 cent drink token by one of the foundations. The token is from the Olympia Saloon (named after the SS Olympia) owned by Vanoni and Larco from 1899 to 1905. 801 State Street Santa Barbara, CA. It is pretty corroded but it has a picture of the ship on it. That was my best find friday.

Saturday the weather was nice in the morning but terrible storms in the afternoon. Don't think I found much that day. Roger, Eric, Ryan and I did try to find an old stage stop in between storms which was fun. I may have found my "washer" here but I don't know for sure.

Sunday night I threw all my detecting clothes in the washer, then in the dryer. I was trying to tell my wife about my Wells adventures and she was somewhat listening. lol. She really wanted me to take care of whatever was clinking in the dryer. So I went to the dryer to investigate. I fished around my wet clothes only to find a "washer" I had put in my pants pocket. I may have found it on the adventure, looking for the stage stop saturday afternoon but can't be positive. I found several similar ones over the weekend. I got to looking at the "washer" and it had cleaned up. Imagine my surprise when i realized it was a Hong Kong 1 mil coin from 1865. They minted these in Great Britain from 1863 to 1866. It is one tenth of one cent. I love it.

Moral of the story, make sure you check your "washers" and don't throw them in the washer. Thanks for looking GL, HH.

Thanks, Darby
