Yesterday's hunt
Quote this message in a reply
Got out for about a hour and a half yesterday. Was aiming for about 3 but ended up talking and helping out(splitting wood) the gentleman who helped me obtain the property.
Got my first skeleton key and it's identical to his original set to his 1753 house. Gonna have to see if it goes into the lock.
A brass or copper thimble, very heavy and unusual.
Piece of what looks to be a early 1700s or 1600s crotal bell.
And other dodads.

Today's hunt was nothing special for me. 6 buttons and some lead. James got all the good stuff! Will post those finds tomorrow along with Thursdays unknowns.
Gl and HH all

Nice finds! I would like to find a skeleton key and that would make for a great day. The other dodads are nice too. Good job on the hunt and helping split wood for the gentleman. Happy
