SIlver #20, a ring, & more clad!!!

Well good news comes in pairs on my third trip out this week. Been real busy at work and the heat Wednesday and Thursday turned me away. Another Boy Scout neckerchief clasp, a 1966 40%ter Kennedy in the middle of a patch of woods, a small .925 ring with two hands mending a broken heart, and a 1945 wheat with the mint lustre still intact on the obverse. The reverse has some kind pine tar or something on it. Cleaning it sometime later.

Enjoy and Good Luck and Happy Hunting to all you guys!!!

Ed

ps... That disc with the #53 on it is a tree tag. The foresters in the Metroparks mark the trees with these tags all over the place. This is one that either somebody pulled off a tree or came off after a tree fell. Beats me why but I think it may be to watch growth or for a survey of tree variety over time.

Nice job Ed!  Sweet '66 Kennedy half!
No heat here, snow fell on the mountain tops last night.  60 was the high. 
Weird weather!

Ed, I have ONE half in the past two years, not easy suckers to find! Superb! I don't find as many slides as I used to, but, I always loved pulling them up. I haven't been out on an all-day hunt in about and week & a half, due to the deplorable ground conditions. Saving my energy for the coming fall.

Thanks SLC! You can keep the snow but I'll take 60 any day of the week!! Today was gorgeous! Mid 70's and steady wind gusts to 15 mph from the NE. Toward evening I had to don a sweatshirt.

Joe,

I'm piling up those neckerchief clasps this year. They blow my ears out at VID 6-27.
I was only out for about 5 hours today.
Talk about luck on that half. Middle of a good sized patch of woods and I'm getting a strong 1-29 with gobs of tone. I'm saying to myself, "Shit, another steel can aluminum top!", but the angel on my right shoulder says, "DON'T listen to him, dig the signal." And I was surprised to say the least when I saw the eagle and the stars bristling through the dirt. I've dug plenty of Kennedy clads over the years but this is my first silver one and even though it's a 40%ter I'm one happy camper!

BONES! LOL!!! Those damn rings are everywhere I swear. They are Claddagh Irish love, loyalty and friendship rings. That's about the 6th one I've found with a similar design. I've one studded with some real reflective tiny natural stones and it glistens so much that my wife now owns it and wears it all the time.

Great finds Ed.  That's a beautiful half.  Looks like your Claddagh ring is missing something.

It doesn't have a crown! It's a close one though!
