  • Where there are signals there's hope.

    As per the norm the junk first. And I'm sorry to say that the broken glass just will not quit.

    Nothing special in the glassware but I will go out on a limb and say that this wide mouth mason jar is for canning salmon.

    I thought for sure that I was pulling up a tin can with this cellphone and it has definitely seen better days.

    Some of the oddball things that show up in the scoop are reminders of days long gone. Like these tube tops most likely from toothpaste. I don't have a clue what the little blobs at the bottom are I just thought they were funky looking so I threw them in as well.

    This is from 1896: Colgate dental cream.

    Now as I said where there are signals there's hope. And I am still trying to find one stinking key. :rolf:

    Not everything here is old as you can see.

    And I found another mystery item. I think it may be a weight to add to a downrigger for deep sea fishing. This would add about 2lbs to the line.

    Anyone who knows better can jump in with a proper identification.

      I found another 3 silver plated spoons.

      And on Friday I thought I had found 3 more old silver coins.

    But the center 2 ended up being 2 more old pennies.

      So when I found these today I knew from the size hat the smaller one was a quarter

      But I had to be sure that the larger one was a silver 50

      So I cracked today's one open and yup a Kind Edward 50 cent piece.

      I will keep the other one as a mystery 50 and I think that I may raffle it off for my next fun hunt. I hope that everyone's evening is as nice as mine.

      Have a good night and Happy Hunting tomorrow.

          The Colgate tops are a neat find. And it's interesting how many valves/pit-cocks you find.
          By the way, thanks for cleaning up all that broken glass.

            I like the old Colgate tops also Greg, and It is just not my style to toss the broken glass back where someone could seriously injure themselves.
            I take it all home and toss it in the recycle blue box.  https://www.crd.bc.ca/service/waste-...ycling-program
