August 19, 2021 - Dalhousie at Ryerson West
August 19, 2021 Dalhousie at Ryerson West It’s another fine summer day in Winnipeg. Not too hot so out metal detecting I go. It has been a while since I last went out and I was craving adventure. Ryerson School has a large play field on both the East and the West side of the school. The west field runs parallel to Dalhousie Drive and there are several large older trees which provide nice shade from a hot sun while detecting. I’ve also learnt that an area is never completely cleaned out. I have detected in this general area before and there are always more treasures to be discovered. Today was no exception. My total CASH haul was .31c. Two dimes, both from 1985, one seriously bent? Ten Canadian pennies, mostly from the 1980’s, one dated 1968 and one US penny: 1978. I also found two metal buttons and lots of rusty bottle caps. Hey, not bad… only two pull tabs today but lots of foil and broken metal parts from cars. Also found was a Marihuana Vape Pipe “Ghost 50mg”. For better or for worse, it’s a sad tribute to what artifacts future detectorists will be finding from the era we live in. I also found several pieces of chain link fence. It brought me right back to last year’s finds… same ole same ole. Any time you detect near chain link fences, all sorts of fence parts and pieces show up. One nice item found was what looks like a brooch in the shape of a Cowboy Boot. Key word: Looks like. It’s terribly damaged if it is indeed a brooch but interesting nonetheless. Roger
