The holy grail for southern US metal detectorists. Congratulations!!!
    It appears that you have read Dr.Harry Hutchins Jr's book on slave tags.
    You are right on in the description.Number 69 has been found for 1813 so we know that at least 69 were made that year.We are looking for the others..lol...the sandy soil is very kind to the relics we find with our Tesoro's
    Here is a story of slave tags and No. 59.

    I've heard that if people start putting diamonds on the market they basically get "muscled" into not putting them on by thugs from Debeers....and I meant oil by the way where I typed Gold in my previous post. I must have Gold on the brain.

    Holy Moly! 14-16?!?! What are you swinging to get that depth? I can only get that with the DFX in wet soil with the thing in mixed or all metal mode.

    Re: My Find Of A Lifetime

    I concur BCH, I don't understand. I don't have a slave, and I am pretty set that it's a sin to do so. Regardless, let me find that darn slave tag. I would do the chicken dance and then some. I don't think anyone condones slavery. What does that have to do with a historical artifact from 1815 associated slavery? Again BCH, like you I don't understand the post.

    Its also very possible that you didnt read the first post where we were told it is indeed a slave tag.

    You might have missed the post because it's two years old. Still an amazing find!
