    Decided to detect when we had a low tide and discovered my golden handle. I noticed a piece had broken off and as it was 100+ years old I decided to fine tune my F75 and grid the location 10 feet around the handle find. After a slow and methodical find I found another piece I was searching for. The date is 1897 on one side and W.H.M.S on the other. Researching I found this may have been an early movement of the Temperance movement on the west coast as upon closer inspection it looks like Bacchanal, the god of wine but has horns like the devil. It is gold and I would love to know more.....
