Brian found these great finds which include old coins, rings, broaches, tokens and other items . He is fairly new to the hobby  and found these nice items in a short time with his Shadow X-2.  I believe you will be seeing more about his finds!  
WHILE DETECTING IN THE WOODS THIS HUNTER RECOVERED A VERY INTERESTING FIND.   TWO PIECES OF SILVER WHICH HAVE BEEN SEMI MELTED .  YOU MAY NOTICE THE IMPRINT RING ON THE ITEMS LEFT FROM THE CONTAINER IN WHICH THEY WERE MELTED.  AS YOU CAN SEE BY THE SIDE VIEW IT IS THICK AND DID NOT REALLY MELT DOWN WELL.  THESE WEIGHT IN AT ABOUT 6 POUNDS. NICE FIND! AND MAYBE ONLY A BEGINNING OF MORE!
  MAYBE HARD TO NOTICE , BUT THERE IS A  " W " CARVED IN THE TOP SIDE OF THE SILVER MASS, AND AT THE BOTTOM IS A CROSS, AND POSSIBLY AN " X " AND AN ARROW.
 VERY INTERESTING! HUH?
  This photo of the Capital Traction Co. Button is actually in great condition, however the glare at the top of the photo makes it appear to be bent. The button is made of the same two piece fashion as the civil war eagle buttons. Capital Traction Co. was the name of the railroad that ran through that area of Virginia.
  Look closely and you will be able to see the image of a lady on this broach. I am not sure what it made of , appears to be encased in gold, however surface of the broach feeds like pearl like material of some sort. Can anyone give a period date for this item?
