#27 - 1936 Washington, 2 wheats!
Quote this message in a reply
Took off for a section of woods I've never done so it was an exploratory trip to say the least. About a half hour walk to get to it but it was such a beautiful day and so much cooler than yesterday. I even wore a stiff canvas shirt jacket I own and that was a good call.

I found stuff in groups. A pile of keys with all the ends broken off!! ?? And what appears to be a thin brass inlet/exhaust vent for a lantern, then a headstamp nearby and then a buckle about 20 feet away. I should mention that about 50 feet from this area where the keys were, I found about a half dozen, broken and whole, 16 oz. brown returnable beer bottles. Then quite a distance away, the 36 Washington followed by 2 wheats (41 & 45) at 14" apart, followed by a headstamp and an old shoe!!!??? The apparent gas caps and headstamps were further from these finds and here and there. I also found an old fire pot half rotted and a splitting wedge quite rusted, though I neglected to either take them with me or take pics. So this was an active area of woods and I'm glad I went there. It's very large and I just skimmed through it for the most part, keeping an eye out for possible campsite locations. There was also a large amount of iron nails and such in real nice possible camp areas, and concentrated in just those spots. That always gets me pumped up.

I liked this hunt today. Although I can't deny that the silver and the wheats made it a great day, it's always so much more fun when a good variety of vintage stuff turns up on one trip! Makes the whole trek so much more worth it!

Have fun out there guys and gals and HAPPY HUNTING!!
