Late to the party.

As per, usual Lisa and learned about a site about a month after the rest of the detecting world had their way with it. We heard of a seated quarter, a few tokens, shields, etc. being found there. The site is in a very old part of town where three circa 1890's homes had been taken out. After securing permission, we've spent the last few weekends looking for scraps. Ongoing work has been stirring the dirt up a little so we reasoned it might be fun to try...

We both managed a little silver, Indians, wheaties, marbles, some slick bottles, relics, and I've found several roached advertising tokens. The one pictured turned out to be in pretty good shape. I'm sure many nowadays would gasp at seeing the "swastika" but prior to WW2, it was a pretty common good luck symbol.

The ornate relic is a holder from a Knights of Pythius ceremonial sword belt, probably 1890's. The "advertising washer" is from a plumbing company that was in business in 1891.

Our combo continues to be Lisa on the Racer 2 with the 5" and me with the Equinox 800 with the 6".
