1929 Whatsit

26 May

While hunting a 1925 park with the CZ-3D, I found this metal band. At first I thought it may be a bird’s id tag but once I made it round again, it seemed a bit too big for a bird’s leg.

It gave a high tone on the CZ and the needle landed on the Zinc facet. If I remember right, it was about five inches deep.

It has the following written on it: 63642 Kansas Accredited 1929.

metal band with numbers on it

We know whatever this was on was accredited in Kansas in 1929

Metal band and U.S. dime

’bout the size of a dime

Of course, anything with a date I think it’s pretty cool.

Thank you for looking!

    Looks like a bird band…Duck, Goose, Turkey, Swan, etc.

    Yeah, I suppose it could be for a bigger bird. I wonder why they used the word ‘accredited’.
