One of the reasons I post metal detecting videos on YouTube is to elicit assistance in identifying mysterious, unknown items we all come across in our digging adventures. That happened once again overnight, when a person who goes by ‘Manabozo’ on YT solved the puzzling, round wheel-like object that came out of the ground in a flick uploaded on October 13th, 2016. Here’s the link to that video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNJyp4VXPjw&lc=z13ih5iriyuwtdffp23lhdth3wqzst03y
It was the main frame of a gyroscope, easily identified when compared to the photos below.
Manabozo, by taking the time to respond to the video, in effect makes us all a little smarter, adding to the mental files we carry in our heads while we are out scanning the earth for buried relics and artifacts from the past.
