KEEPER: This is a love token carved from a Seated Quarter. It is dated January 1st, 1894 on one side, and carries the initials of the couple on the other side. It is well worn. It is extremely rare to find a love token in the US made from a silver quarter. Most are made from dimes. One of my favorite finds.
SITE: Yard of antebellum home that had been repurposed into a small neighborhood
SITE EVALUATION: 10 of 10 Plenty of bullets, relics and old coins here.
PERMISSION: Friendly homeowner was just leaving, yet said “make yourself at home and have fun.”
Under the Tree and In the Brush: This was found under a weeping willow tree. I’ve found many great items by getting under branches and up inside of big trees that go all the way to the ground.
