Iron Cross 7.18.2016 b

Found by Bill Seibel. “OK I don’t know what this is but it is interesting….
What is it?
About 1″ long by 1/2″ in width.
Looks to have a Iron Cross in the middle of it.
Rings up as copper but doesn’t look to be copper. Found where a German family lived.
Found 3″ deep using a White’s TreasurePro.”
ASK THE EXPERTS answer: It looks to be the top of a utensil handle.

copper ring 2016

Found by Susannah on Mystery Hunt #2 with XP Deus at 3 inches. Heavy adjustable copper ring, initials first thought to be “SH” but now known to be “HS”. See August newsletter article for research done by Bill Seibel.



Found in Dogtown by Lee Nunnally and Dave Steck, at a house built from lumber from the 1904 World’s Fair.  The nail punch looking item is in reality a copper connection to a lightning rod.  It was connected to a deeply buried cable.  If anyone has any insight as to what the disc is…Lee would appreciate it.  It was found where an old garage was that housed a Model T.  All were found 4-6 inches deep.

ASK THE EXPERTS answer: The disc is a Model T timing gear.
