Quote this message in a reply
Went back to the mining camp with my son. Got this bitchin powder flask..looks military to my greenhorn eyes(Ron?,lol) Also  a Chinese coin,underwear button,,etc. The thing thats cut out of the pic at top is ahandle to a spoon or fork...my son researched it,and it dates 1849-1851. Couldnt find tje spoon to our wreath buckles,maybe next time.

My friend, that is a BADASS find!!! Did you find it with the Deus? How deep was it? Ray, congrats, I think that puppy needs to be up top! The eagle on it is clearly visible, and it's in great shape. Phenomenal find, brother!!!

I did a little research, and didn't find any that matched yours exactly. All of the ones I saw the shields were much smaller, whereas yours is very large. Here's a link to an eagle variety that sold at auction...

Ray, that might be a rarer type, as none of my internet searches turned up one with a large shield like yours. Every one I've come across has a smaller shield which the eagle is carrying. I'm sure Ron will nail it in a jiffy, as he's found a few before. Man, I'm jealous brother, that's a sick find!!!

I agree, top spot for Ray is my vote.
