old silver chalice object of colonial history

CTX 3030

copa con florin. acercamiento.jpg

Months with my team we had studied the old mule tracks, where they moved Riding in colonial Mexico and especially where the goods travelled from Acapulco to the capital, passing through remote areas near a populated where it is said that the last was a Franciscan convent, and reviewing a wide area find this object. well, I think it's a kind of cup or something similar and having regard to the church the image that has the front corresponds to a florin… they tell me and apparently out there in 1700 or earlier.

Have you ever stood with your detector ready on the edge of a Medieval field, with a huge Tudor House on its edge, and the remains of an early Medieval Village, with only the House banks left to see below it, by a fast running stream, I am lucky to say that I have by invitation of the owner whose family built the house. The field was situated opposite the courtyard of the Tudor House, and so must have been used by many, as this was the way into house  by  all visitors wealthy and poor, I could not wait to get started on this field, what might I find?

I am sure that many of you have felt the same on the edge of a field with some history, with the thought what is out there waiting for me, and what follows in my story up to a point, you may have had the same results.

When you hear "You won't find anything"


July 15, 2014 09:00am

After a year of trying, I finally scored permission to hunt a yard that once had a 1910 home on it in a city that has had activity all the way back to the Seminole Indian tribes.
One permission led to another and on an adjoining lot, I got a deep but clear signal that sounded pretty sweet. Upon scanning my dirt pile, something popped out and at first thought it was a silver half dollar.

Well the first thought was correct, it was silver and the size of a half, however it was a medal given starting in the early 1800's once a year to a selected person. Their name is inscribed professionally on the medal and also the date of which it was presented to the individual. Mine is stamped 1859.

I am sending this in after talking to Tim at Minelab International. I used to think I had the top of the range metal detector and going out I used to find quite a lot of interesting items, then met up with a new friend and went out on our outings which was great fun. My friend decided that it was time to get a better machine and decided to buy an E-TRAC so I had to buy one as well to see if they were any good, not really expecting it to be as far as I was concerned I already had a top machine. It did not take long at all to get the hang of the machine, the finds poured in, so we went over old ground already done, and dug deeper with E-TRAC which threw me all over the place as far as I was concerned my old machine could not be beaten. Well how wrong could i be, now saving for the CTX 3030, my conclusion is best thing I ever done just waiting now to buy the CTX to try it out.

Silver Loyalist Shoe Buckle

Silver Loyalist Shoe Buckle.jpg

Last year, shortly after purchasing my new Minelab E-TRAC, I took it for a test swing at one of my Loyalist sites. It was iron infested and tough going, but managed well in TTF. I pulled a few 1797 cartwheel pennies and a 1786 Massachusetts copper from around the foundation. I was amazed at how well the E-TRAC saw the coppers through all of the nails!!

Next signal was a broken, choppy signal and that is all I remember about it now. If my memory serves me correctly, it was about 7" down. I dug the plug and at the bottom of the hole was this ugly black thing which I thought was junk. I threw it in my pouch and didn't think any more of it.

When I got home and was going through my finds for the day, I pulled that item out again. I looked at it pretty hard before I realized what it was, and even then, still thought that it may be pewter.
