A few finds this weekend w/ a whats it?

March 02, 2021 04:19PM
Hello all,

Couldn't stand it on Sunday PM, so went out for several hours to an old park, and beat the brush again. Items here are mostly 1890-1930. Used the MX Sport w/ the 7" Detec.

1896 IHC was a nice find. Also found a piece of a fine silver chain. Not sure if i detected it, or the other non ferrous junk in the hole.

Picked up 2 older keys. Have found a dozen or so here in the 1900-1930 era. They all come from Massachusetts or surrounding states.

Finally, found a brass whats-it. I really don't know what it is. Research says 'Made in China' started after 1919. This one is missing the 'i' in the phrase. They were all well oxidized and brown/black. I used some acid to make them appear bright. Welcome any ideas as to what it may have been. The back was soldered to the 'frame'. Appears it was either inset in something, or maybe it had a lid at one time. Interesting hand carved floral design, which appears to look like something Hawaiian or Polynesian. Maybe an early ashtray....or makeup compact.

Hope all are well and getting out when possible,
Zincoln
