Mark -49r Relics and I have been hitting quite a few old gold rush sites in the last few months.

First of all here is a pic of what we dig to get the few goodies that we brag about!!

There are still a few goodies in the bunch to be separated.

Mark digs the heck out of rosettes and conches.  I tend to find a lot of these powder tin caps and other misc caps from that time period.

here is a pile of goodies that I left in the tumbler all night--yep forgot and went to bed.  Well they are definitely 'cleaned up"  actually I kind of like the look.

I see quit a few goodies in that pile...is the powder flask smashed real bad, or can you do some dr. Frankenstein work on it, and bring it back? I got one hilltop in a large mining camp that I dig nothing but jeans buttons...like way more than normal..often wonder how they kept their pants up.

My empire of dirt.

Nice finds. I like the Carhartt buttons. How long have they been in business?

Those cleaned up a treat!

 Is the star shaped thing a horse reins decoration?

thanks for  the comments

Will--Carhartt -Founded in 1889

Ray-- Only 1/2 a flask-no bringing her back but it will display OK.

Micah--I believe you are correct and that it was a saddle/horse tack decoration.  It had a rusty chain on it when I found it but it disintegrated.
