    If you think about it, we often value a coin or other relics by how many were made, condition & age.
    Well this is a one of a kind item, it's in great shape and it's over 140 years old!
    It's a part of our history. It's an art form. It a very personal item that tells a war story just by looking at it. This is the type of relic we all want to find!
    It's a very rare & unique relic that deserves to be up there on the Banner!
    My vote is in!

    Thanks MUD, Breezie, Mike, Don, Rob, and Doug for your nice comments and support for Banner. If the note I posted from the little boy's note to heaven meant for his recently deceased grandfather attached to the remains of helium balloon I found while bush hogging in the early summer didn't make it, the acorn bullet won't either. By the way "Austin's note" will be in an upcoming issue of AD magazine. The "acorn bullet" will be pictured in an AD magazine issue in the late spring too.
    The rules for banner is (as some members have stated by posts) they want BLING and plain relics with no markings will NOT be on banner. I did not have any witnesses and made no pic of it when dug. Heck, I didn't even know what it was at that time. I promise this to everyone on Tnet:
    I have NOT and never will post anything I did not personally dig or hunt restricted areas anywhere. I have also lobbied hard for some things found by other members I have never met that I personally felt deserved to be on banner and have probably worn out my welcome here in doing so. HH, Quindy.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Quindy... As you know I'm new to this forum so I don't know much about this banner stuff. How do you nominate something for a banner? Knowing how rare a find that is it should be a banner find as a carved corps insigna is hard to find. I have a .58 caliber bullet that was carved into an acorn ( bad job I might add but I think it was susposed to be an acorn ) but your's is a .69 which is more desirable. Donnie

    You do it below your avatar where it says "Nominate for banner" formally although some folks just say "banner' in their reply but it's up the the moderators. Thanks and HH, Quindy.

    It's a banner in my book Quindy. I have never found one of those, and may not ever. It is a Banner find any day! You are one of the more informative ones here Quin, and if any one deserves the Banner it's you. Thank you for all the great W&E articles and others you have blessed the detecting world with. You got my vote for that Very Historic and pristine American relic.
    Your friend,
    Mike

    I think it's a banner find. I have been hunting for 20 years or more and I have only found a few carved bullets. And it's always a real kick when I do because of how rare they are to find. None of the one's I have found are as nice as yours Quindy. You got my vote!
