A special bucket lister . . . .
« on: August 24, 2017, 21:40 »
I've wanted one of these since before I started detecting. I had been pulling canslaw all day, so when I felt the jagged edge I thought it was another bit. Luckily I didn't abuse or mishandle it. 3rd Edition Rising Sun badge!! In service 1904-1949.

Talk about stoked.

Managed 4 pennies as well.

Did I mention I like this game?
I wanna to find stuff older than I am . . . . . .

Great Find... well done on clearing something from the Bucket List. it certainly makes pulling all those ring pulls worthwhile.

I know there were a few different designs but just wondering if the later badges were made from a different material?  We have some info in Resources but i don't know if it mentions the metal.
