Bracelet and token

19 Dec

I went out hunting this evening for two whole hours. I had planned on going to an old park that holds promise for old coins but at the last minute I made a change to my plans and instead went to the soccer field where I found the pre-1900 shipping tag.

If you’ve read some of my older posts, you may know that I am now actively looking for gold by digging mid tones. The soccer field has been in use for a couple of decades and there is a chance that there is gold there. Today however, I did not find any gold nor did I find any silver. I managed to find some clad, a ton of pull tabs, old beaver-tail style and new square ones (I HATE the new square ones! They sound and look like a good target every time), a brass bracelet about 5 inches down and a sobriety token written in Spanish.

brass child's bracelet and sobriety token

No gold nor silver; just brass

The legend above and below the Phoenix in the token reads: “Rebirth and growth from the ashes of addiction”. The reverse side of the token has the Serenity Prayer in Spanish. The token is the same size as a U.S. half dollar coin.
Judging by the size of the bracelet, it is a child’s bracelet. I found the bracelet in the original baseball diamond built in the 50’s when the school was built. I have hopes of finding silver there still.

We are expecting a winter storm to hit tomorrow –Dec 19, or the day after. After that we will have some more sunny days. I may still get 35 silver coins for the year (I have 33 as of today), or actually half the year since I started detecting in the very last days of May 2011.

Thank you for looking!

    Those are still sweet finds even though they are just brass. I love finding tokens!
