An Indian knife key
Quote this message in a reply
Me and Og went and saw the Veterans day parade this morning.  Hit McDonalds then got a couple hours detecting in.  Went back to the slate tile roof anchor spot.  I got a 1901 Indian head.  It's been a while since I got an Indian.  It's the only coin today.  I also got an old GM car key.  Bones do you know how old that key is?  And an old pocket knife with a little shield looking insignia on the side.  The Indian made my day.  I remember my first real old coin dug was a 1901 V nickel.  Now I have an Injun from the same year to go with it.

No IDea on the key, but that injun and knife are real cool.
a guess on the key would be somewhere between the 30`s - 80`s
a match is here, 48 - 57 GM ignition key ...

i can still order the same key blanks so there is no way to tell if it in fact an original from that time
period, or just a later purchased key blank ...

The key blank I found like yours is for 1935-1966 hope this helps.

later blanks had the section below the hole cut out as well ...

Hey thanks Bones.  I wish I had the old Chevy that went with the key.

Congrats on the 01 IH!!! Yes I wish I could find more of them but I still pull memorials and wheats. Sounds like you two guys had a great time out there. That's what it's really about. I would've guessed 50's to early 60's on the key and you're spot on about owning the car that went with it. Nice hunt Will & Og!!!

Yeah this is an old site.  It's been cherry picked to death, but still loaded with targets.

Thanks Ed.  We were just sitting here playing with the key.  Pretending we were cruising down the road in a 57 Chevy going to the car cruise.
