Third silver in a row

28 Sep

Since I started metal detecting I have hunted every lunch hour, well almost, sometimes I have to run errands.
Today I went to McAdams park again at lunch time and found the front of an old silver locket. It read 81-82 on my AT Pro and it was about 6.5 inches deep. Although it has no Sterling nor .925 stamp, it is unmistakably silver. The front is a bit tarnished. The design seems an old one. It could be old, after all, the park became a park in 1901.  It is the third consecutive hunt in this park and the third consecutive silver piece I find here. Now I will expect silver every time I go there.

The back is hardly tarnished at all

    Cool! I’m assuming you checked the hole for the other half HAHA

      I not only re-checked the hole, I detected every inch of the surrounding spot. The other half may still be there, waiting for me.
      I went back to the park today and only found two wheats. It’s ok, the silver is still there

        Keep looking, you never know! I’ve found both parts of a two-piece medal months apart, and multiple pieces from the same broken lock months apart as well. Of course, that was private property, so I didn’t contend with other MD’ers possibly scooping up the other half!

    Man you are killing it on the silver. Any chance to see a photo of that locket?
