Metal detect finds Xmas tree

Post by MLDetect » Mon Dec 04, 2017 7:27 am

Me and my six year old boy, selected some if this years lesser metal detecting finds to decorate a little Christmas tree.
Some of those buckles and buttons we cursed earlier in the year have now been tumbled and are gleaming in our window display.
Mixed in are some crotal bells (obviously) a lead horse , some shoulder badges and a very ornate Georgian watch winder ,who knows maybe the watch winder was once a Xmas present .
We call it our lost items Christmas tree.

That's very novel. ::g Your 18th C watch winder is a very collectable piece. Regards ss47
