    NC Civil War Officer buckle - My best find EVER!!!!

    Folks, I'm still in shock and overjoyed! After work today I thought I'd get in a few hours of detecting since it was so nice out. I headed back to one of the yards I've been detecting, but never really gridded off thoroughly. Within about 20 minutes I had a strong signal in the front yard. I knew it was fairly big so I cut a decent sized plug. At about 5" deep, I reached in and pulled out one h-ll of a nice CW relic. I saw the "NC on the buckle right away and knew I had one piece of a two piece CW buckle. It is in fantastic condition too. I searched around a bit for the other half, but nothing yet. I will be back though, believe me.
    When I got home, I looked it up in my CW relic book which stated that it is a "very rare" buckle.

    Does anyone know the value of this NC buckle? I'm still in shock.

    What type of soldier would have worn a buckle like this?

    Now here's two other tidbits that make this find more exciting:
    *I found it in an open area that DD-777 and Mirage had hit a few weeks back. I can't believe they missed it, but I'm truly thankful.
    It must have been my Mighty Tesoro Umax.
    *I found it next door to the yard I dug the CW "CSN" button awhile back.
    Perhaps an officer lived here?

    My other finds were:

    * 1897 IH
    *1964 Rosie
    *Suspender clip (?) with stars & a design on it.
    *Two wheats (45 & 52)
    *Antique pocket watch.

    A fantastic day indeed for Modern Miner.
    Thanks for looking,
    MM

    P.S. YA-Hoooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Guys.
    It still amazes me that things like this can pop up in a yard!
    I almost titled my post , "I get my CW relics by the yard."
    This year has been kind to me so far.

    Creeper,
    That would be fantastic. That's $1000 more than I started out with today.

    Thanks Mona.
    The sad thing was, I did have my video camera, but I wanted to be quiet about the find. I was not only on a busy main street, but I didn't want the old guy who followed me around everywhere to see me. I had just got done talking to the neighbor, and as soon as he was done bending my ear and headed home I dug this signal. I'm glad he wasn't there to see this find.

    You know I'd be there by first light if I could...


    By the way - just say NO - to cheese on your BBQ.

    Good LORD, what a find!!

    This IS a banner find, Doug.


    Man oh man. Did you hunt the yard out yet? Was this in the back yard? (If you tell me "yes," expect a PM from me...)


    Even just the tongue part of this one, in such fantastic condition, is a VERY valuable piece.
