Go Up Go Down

After browsing the THunting site yesterday morning,(right after my night job)my appetite was again wettened reading some of the posts and looking at the great finds the members have in their possession,I decided to  braving the cold weather and find a new area locally to scan,3 hours later nothing wanted to show itself,until,my feet were like ice blocks and my eyes were streaming tears due to the frigid cold air...then,a short "blip" signal focused my attention back on the ground,a small brass cuff link around 4ins down appeared out of the moist soil,which immediately made me forget how cold I was.. I careful scanned the surrounding area,and found the broken piece that belonged to it.
On the way back to the car,I uncovered the spoon underneath the roots of a fallen tree.
The item with a "W or M" was found a couple of months ago,it looks like it has exploded judging by the way the alloy has spread,..but I still have no idea what it is.

The cufflink could also be from a farmer shirt or could be a decorative nail. No idea on the W. Is it lead?

The Alpacca alloy was developed in 1823 by the German chemist Dr. Ernst August Geitner (1783-1852). It was very similar in its appearance to silver, but significantly cheaper. Therefore, this new alloy was first called "Argentan". It consisted of 20% nickel, 55% copper and 25% zinc. The new silver-imitating alloy soon became very popular. The Gebrueder Henninger (Henninger Bros.) proposed a similar alloy (5-30% nickel, 45-70% copper and 8-45% zinc with trace amounts of lead, tin and iron) which they called "Neusilber". Later both Argentan and Neusilber were used under the trade name of Alpacca (or Alpakka). The great advantage of the use of Alpacca alloy as the base metal for silver plating is that the appearance of the objects does not change significantly with the wearing away of the silver layer
Hi Christian,how you doing?
After some checking I`m 99% sure it`s a cuff link...as to the "w" thing,.I think it`s aluminum. (I first thought it was the bottom of an handgrenade)

First thing I thought was the W thing was a shot primer of some sort. I am thinking most likely W for Winchester.

It looks much too big to be a primer. My guess is that it may be a medicine bottle cap seal.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Hi Mike,..yeah,the mercury is dropping fast in Germany,..might be a good idea to invest in these new shoe heaters that are in the shops now,..I might test drive a pair come to think of it  Grin
You deserve a medal for de-trashing the environment,good on you..and in the process finding gold would be a bonus for your efforts.
best of luck on your river bank quest.
