    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.

    Super hunt, post, finds and a great day for you and your group. I know the feeling you must have had after finding the buckle and I don't blame you for taking a break and "soaking in" the great rush of finding it. Congrats Will, happy to see such good finds being made and again research and persistance pay off.

    You are the king, Buck, the king of datecting...rasearch...pictures...what more can I say? It looks like you and your buddies have been kicking some serious metal datecting arse quite lately.

    There could be a coppa around there somewhere.

    You definitely lived up to your name, BuckleBoy!

    Kyle
    Those early PA settlers did too much and that is why coppas are found in abundance!

    The Three Datectateers will miles to find the Colonial "stuff"!

    KirkKyleChris (KKC) and to those long-forgotten, coppa-dropping settlers!

    Many sweet congrats to you!
