"Bug" suspender buckle, thimble and other relics
« on: October 10, 2017, 03:58:04 PM »

I got out today for a couple hours. I've been finding more each time I go,I'm not sure if it's luck or skill :023: Anyway,I managed a couple of iron relics, a lot of harmonica reeds(someone really liked their music,a thimble( not sure what it's made of,brass I think) and 2 suspender clasps,1 plain the other has either a ladybug or a beatle of some sort. That was under the root of a tree. It took 30 minutes of hard work to get it. After that, I kind of called it quits for the day. I also dug something made out of lead or pewter. I'm thinking pewter since it's not soft. It appears to be formed in that shape since there's a ridge that runs down the center. Maybe a spoon that got caught in a fire :W): It was a great day to dig out there,I hope there's more like that this year :045:

Nice relics Chris. Most of the thimbles I've found are small. Not only were our Colonial fathers short, but they also had little baby fingers. The ladybug suspender is unique for sure.

I like to find thimbles too. If I can't get a button or coin,the thimble makes the hunt a success. That and it took a half hour digging around roots to get it :011:

That's kind of a unique suspender buckle, for sure. Nice collection of relics and what hunt would be complete without a harmonica reed?

Digging through roots is the worst... I cringed when I saw that last pic. I really like that suspender clip :045:

Out of 7 thimbles I've dug ,5 are the itty bitty version. Yeah,it's weird‼️
