    LOL! That was quick! I think I like "Buckleboy" better though. Digging up Banners just isn't as fun.

    Great Finds BB!! You put in a great deal of time with the 1266-X and were due to hit it big!!! Conrats.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Incredible!!!

    I guess you could say this was "The Perfect Hunt". After wonderful finds like this, I can't even begin
    to imagine how difficult it's going to be to remain focused for your future hunts in that area

    Well done & congrats on the Banner 8)

    Yeah I felt that too--at 5:38 am! I wonder if the five people that live in that area of Illinois survived. Did their pets make it out o.k.?


    Nah, seriously though--that was crazy to feel that earthquake all the way over here. :P

    I was thinking the same thing--it never, Ever happens.  If leather could've survived, maybe we woulda found the belt too.   8)



    UPDATE:  I have the name of the property owner when that house was in existence, and I am pursuing information about who he was, when he enlisted, which battles he saw, etc.  Battlefield finds are in a way much more "impersonal" than these finds are--and I figure that since we have the great gift of knowing his name, and having most of his uniform brass in our possession, we should at least track down who he was--whatever we can find out.  I'm not releasing his name at this point--for the obvious fact that our site is still "open" with potentially more relics to find.
