Short Hunt 2 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 72  
Jr and I were in Illinois yesterday and had a short while to hunt on the way back. Stopped at a park dedicated in 1909 and after about a hour of swinging I came up with the following goodies....Jr found two wheaties and a bus or street car token.



Any ideas on the car key, Junior LSS pin or the round ball made from lead?

The Buff is a 1929 P.

By the way the car key was DEEP. The blade on my digging knife is 7" and it was in between the rivets in the handle deep so my guess is about 9 or 10 inches down below the surface of the dirt.

I found out a little about the pin. It is a Life Saving Service pin that was issued to Boy Scouts who would earn it. It's from the 30s and I saw one on eBay that was listed for $20. It wasn't dug and had the pin and clasp intact and mine does not.

I think you are right on the key! Possibly a Dodge key as well. Possibly from the 1950s. Kind of a jet age type of a logo. Still looking.

A great looking Buff keith!! Silver is sure hard to come by this year, but an old Nickel sure makes up for it.

I could go down town and buy a Mercury dime for a dollar (Now it's 4 dollars)and it would not mean much to me, but when I find one metal detecting I am thrilled
