My random find of 2011
by Brandon Sutton
I am still new to the world of metal detectin and spend on average, 4 hours a week scouring the yards of old homeplaces here in central Arkansas. Last week I stopped by a friend's house where he let me do some detecting in his yard, where once stood an old home. While searching underneath an old clothes line, I unearthed this: A small, thin, embossed copper medal of some kind. I have searched for hours trying to find out exactly what it is. No luck. It appears to be an adolescent boy, wearing shorts, a tank top, hiking boots (?) And holding some type of staff. My first thought was Boy Scouts, but I found nothing related to it. I am stumped.
From Frank Pandozzi:
Can anyone identify this piece. It's interesting.
