  1. Hello to all who follow:: Years have whirled by since I have been able to JUST DIG; Those ancient times found us in a hole(3-4 ft deeep;and as big around,sifting carefully through the bunches of dirt;rock.or,other materials,that were plenty, to finally get a peek at whatever little, or lot, you just discovered!!! That’s the coolest feeling, no matter what you found, I was fortunate more times than not, to actually find some Cool stuff. (1)a bronze substraight, that was a wall/door emblem,which was the symbol for the medical field. It was a serpent wrapped around a staff. It was,most certainly, a rare item, as was hard to find any others to compare/value with. But we were able to, through lots of research, and discussions,with people with “knowledge” to agree, was rare. and was made jby hand,but still very specifically detailed, and was determined to be.older,by as much as 200+ yrs!! As others find the: bottles//the cool and rarer, than commons//Much rarer. little,heavy, medicine/tonic..bottles(bitters) bottles. 1 or 2 19th century, soda bottles from Farmington, Ut, company, I other further North. many others, Not common either. trade tokens from SL. County,cool marbles,old fountain pens,for ink wellls,,,old,cool inkwells;military artifacts(W 1; WW2; old,encrusted, 22 revolver(“6 gun”) from, again, “knowledgeable” folks, before 1900,given style(period circa 1800’s) sorry;(authentic) victoirian style jewerly, silver jewelryt; old rings, necklaces;brooches of many;anyway, cool stuff. Other type collectiables from not dirt holes,picked from other souces, which kept cash in pocket,often during those years, But, I just look forward to getting dirty, this year, just to….DIG, and dig, sooo, need to find old spots to find a privy, or whatever it B.
