    Found this in my backyard this weekend.  I don't have a clue what this is, with the exception of the mercury dime.

    I did my yard a while back.. only found trash, now there is an old slave house and quarters and the property my neighbor owns, trying to get permission to detect and dig around the old buildings.

       That is a 3 ct ruby in gold mount. The ax head in center is 200 years old. The oil can tags date to the '20s  It was a good 4 hours.    Frank...-

          PS: This is the picture I show to the neighbors to gain access for detecting on a 50/50 basis. By the way there eyes light up, I think it introduces GREED. lol   

     

       

     This is a better view of the blacksmith made ax head that I have conserved and mounted. As you can see it had a fault that caused a piece to break off. It was probably left when they cleared the lot 200 years ago, the age of the house.

     

     

     

     

    I deal in reality and call them as I see them. Frank
