Go Up Go Down

Another week on a business trip, got out detecting three times.  First hunt was on a nice flat field I had permission on from a local farmer, detected about 1.5 hours from dusk to dark.  Didn?t find much but had a good time swinging.  The finds from that hunt.  Two buttons and one with a rampant lion facing right, late 1800s German military.  A crusty late 1800s coin and a 1921 aluminum 50 Pfennig coin in nice condition.

I drove past these stairs several times near my work site, had to find out where they went so I prepared to explore/detect one day after work.
{alt}
The stairs led up to an old foundation, probably a German WWII barracks looking at the layout of the foundation.  Detected for about 1.5 hours into the dark.  There was a lot of trash but I found many brass casings from American and German bullets and several live German rounds.  Also found a 1961 American nickel.  No pictures of the finds.  This is a bad picture of the foundation, was getting dark fast and raining.
{alt}
The hotel I stayed in owns much of the land around the middle of town.  They were building a new road that leads to their parking lot so I asked permission to detect the small lot.  Permission was granted by the manager and I could hardly wait to get down there, just 80? from the middle of a town built in 938 AD.  It was another night hunt and very muddy but I did not mind as I was dreaming of medieval silver hammered coins.  After about 30 minutes of detecting, I realized most of the dirt here was fill dirt.  I only found a few small pieces of old ceramic shards, a lot of trash and two 1900 coins.  A bit of a let down but still a thrill filled hunt.  Here?s a picture I took of the lot in the daylight.  A nice flat area behind me with a few mounds of dirt, part of the road construction, my hotel to the left and a castle to the upper right.

The two coins I found, 1 Deutsch Mark from 1971 and a 1940 WWII 5 Pfennig coin with a swastika.  HH, Mike

Hello MIke,

I have also found exactly one of these lion buttons. I'm not 100% certain but think it's a Bavarian military button.

I also come up with the WWII zinc and aluminium coins from time to time. Unfortunately their condition is often rather poor.

Do you also have a picture of teh coins back?

Sincerly,

Christian

The military button dates from 1871-1918.  I'll try to get a pic of the coins obverse later.  Thanks for the nice comments and HH, Mike
