    My 2011 High-lites 2 Banner Finds (Thank YOU!)

    Hey Gang,
    This year proved to be my best relic year since both of my BANNER finds were in 2011. (Thanks to all of my buds who voted; I really appreciate it. )
    My favorite and most special find of this year was the SAMBO Cap Gun. The Cannonball Guy did a fabulous job of electrolysis. (Thank you again! ) http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,423067.0.html

    The Slave Trade Bracelet was one of those 'it's a what!!!' reaction after having it appraised. I knew it was not grandma's arthritis bracelet or a hippie bracelet, so I sprung for a professional appraisal. http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...ic,419944.html

    I was really excited to find the North Carolina button, which I have placed in a display with Civil War items I've dug on battlegrounds where my g-grandfather fought. He was in the NC 7th Infantry and was shot/wounded during the Battle of New Bern and lost his leg. Of course, this button was not found on one of those battlefields, but still holds a special meaning.http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...ic,385149.html

    As far as CW relics are concerned, my favorite find was the nipple protector, and it was first for me.
    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,406831.0.html

    My best buy for the year was an 1880's Sailor's brass personal document tube. I also had this one professionally ID-ed and appraised. http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...,417451.0.html

    Last year was the year for jewelry, but I did manage to dig a nice gold ruby ring with some diamond chips.

    The most important find this year (and past years) has been all of the friends I've made on TNet. Thank you for allowing me, via the Internet, into your homes.

    Breezie
    PS: I have had the same avatar pic since I've been in TNet. I think January 1st will be a good time to change it. Whutcha think?

    WOW Breezie, you had an incredible year. I had not seen the document tube. That was a great buy. Work on those articles!! That bracelet carries quite a story. MC & HNY, Q.

    Breezie,
    OUTSTANDING year for you. Not 1, but 2 banners!!! Way to represent NC.
    I still can't get over that Sambo gun. That is one of the neatest finds I've seen on Tnet, and the resto job is amazing.
    Looking forward to finally meeting you soon in 2012. Maybe you, Mike, and I could get together and hit a few spots. Mike kicks my rump every time, but I keep trying.
    Congrats to you,
    Dug

    You had a better year than most people I know that detects. The little gun turned out real nice. I like that one the best. And your other finds would make anyones year. Boy you really get after it down there in N.C.. Good for you! I bet next year will be even better. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Breezie.
