    2008 finds!!

    Hi everyone, o8 has been a good year for me I didn't get all my goals completed but came close I found my first large cent which was one of my goals but didn't find a civil war bullet. One of my other goals was to find 50 buttons but I only got 47.
    Here's my favorite button a Virginia state seal.
    Here's my coin finds for the year.
    and here's some more buttons and my first half cent.
    Hope everybody has a great new year cant wait to see everybodys finds next year.HH!

    Re: 2008 finds!!

    Looks like a Good Year to me! I'd take a VA state seal over a bullet Anyday!

    Growing up in VA, you'd think I'd have found one--but I've never found even one good Confederate button...only Eagles, Eagles, GStaffs, and more Eagles...

    Took my buddies back there and one of 'em dug a VA state seal this spring. I'm Confederate Button Cursed. Been 16 years.

    So with just the VA button and the nice old coins, that is a GREAT year.

    Best Wishes,

    Hey civilman1 I would be there in a hour but the wife keeps my gas money and shes still mad about me driving five and a half hours to finds the VA button but it was worth it. Cant wait to see your cs buckle on the banner next year! Ill get me a bullet soon but if not I might have to get your help . I did find two musket balls at a confederate camp on the easternshore of VA. so I guess that will have to do to next year.

    Wow, so many buttons, I have a few 3 ringers I'll trade you. LOL I hunted in Va. this year and hunted one whole day, and never found a button, but the next day I did find 5 button's one of them being a Eagle and one was a West Point button.

    All I can say is You Did Good, what a year. Congrats on all your finds!
