When Time Stood Still...

...Or at least it seemed to run slower....

We invited a father and son metal detecting duo to spend a half day at our place this month. We have broken ground on the new shed which is right beside the original stables and we have been unearthing many more "treasures" and old wagon pieces.

Here are some of the items they found and at the end is a little video they made of their exploration here.

The watch above and the silver plated lighter were exciting finds because they are often engraved items but sadly we didn't discern anything on these items.

People on this property have also been very careful with their money...
this is the only coin found, a half penny from 1944 and a penny dated 1941.

Front and back of maybe some horse tack? Anyone have any ideas?
The large piece is very heavy like lead but not terrible soft. Maybe it's a pewter? The little round item is brass and the front has a section of willow pattern on it???

Anyway, here is Jay and his dad with their video. Jay has other videos on YouTube too.


  1. some wonderful finds there, not sure on the brass piece, could be front decorative bit to a breastplate maybe? the round one might be a 'button' perhaps from a bridle brow piece? am not very familiar with harness but have seen quite a few over the years from plain & practical to the more exotics for shows
    thanx for sharing

  2. Fascinating! Loved the video.

  3. Some great finds, Tanya. Really interesting to see what was there. :)

  4. How wonderful to have history buried on your property. Fascinating and exciting to unearth such treasure. Meg:)

  6. Really interesting, to see items that have been patiently waiting and enduring their situation, as it were, in the earth...
