Latest Treasure Hunt Find

I went treasure hunting with the kids and the metal detector the other day in the woods behind the house, where local resident of yesteryear threw away and buried a lot of bottles, cans, and what-not.

One of the girls dug this up.

Googled the name "Matthews and Willard" and found that it's the bottom section of an old (1897) Kerosene Bicycle Lamp (nickel-plated brass).

Kinda cool.
