I started on the back part of the lot where the old home actually was. It is extremely trashy from where it burned about 10 years ago. I have hunted it several times with my other single frequency machines to aid in separation and speed, and have found several good finds but, of course a site is never hunted totally out, so I was ready to take another "swing" at it..
I found a few wheat cents right off the bat. Several odd pieces of slag and other bits of high conductive trash. I did get a good 13-44 solid at 5 inches.. I also could see a lower number(12-34ish) on the target trace.. Out came this 1942 Mercury dime and a 5 mil Okla tax token. I love how the CTX is able to id more than one target at a time.
I could not find any maker's marks or any id assisting letters to help positively identify this particular piece.
Over a year ago I found a watch fob that had the Egyptian markings. After a lot of searching, I found that it was part of the 1920's Egyptian Revival period. King Tutankhamen's Tomb was discovered and that began the renewed interest in the Egyptian glyph's in everything from jewelry to house decor. The site I was at was a very wealthy and prominent residence in the early part of the 1900's. So I think this particular finds would also be from that "Revival" period. I will continue to search until I get a 100% positive id, and I will update this post when I do. As of now I believe this to be either part of a bracelet or a watch fob.
