1850s Farmhouse Metal Detecting Finds
By: Phillip G.
I went to my neighbor's farm here in West Virginia. I have been asking for permission to detect with my Garrett AT Pro, he agreed as long as I fed his horse for a week that he was going out of state. I agreed. Just on his bank of his yard I found all of this. The lock was great, but the stirrup, I gave to him. He has a picture that he told me is of his Great Grandmother sitting on a horse and the side saddle it came from. As it was very hard to do this, I gave the owner his Great Grandmother's stirrup, and he was silent. Finally, with a small smile he replied, I really like the stirrup.
