Flying Dutchman Unearthed

By: Kelly W.


Today Denny and I were hunting an old site in our home town. The site has had several homes and business's on it since the late 1800's. Most recently a store stood on the site and it was just torn down to make room for something else. This is the same site that Denny found his first silver dollar. I was hunting with my MXT with the 4.5x7 Excelerator coil. (Love that coil) We had been hunting for about an hour when I got a solid penny reading. I recovered this odd little figure from about 4" down. It appeared to be a man with wings having a fat belly holding a torch above his head. On the bottom of the figure it reads Moline (MP) Plow company. When I got home I got on the computer and plugged in the name that appeared on the figure. I found that it is the trademark of Moline Plow company. It is a stick pin and it is called the "Flying Dutchman" . The trademark was made official in 1868. I also found that the item he is holding above his head is an ear of corn. This was an interesting and unique find for me and I thought you might enjoy seeing it. Take care and stay in touch, Bonnie Idaho
