    weekend finds

    went to a small field the other day. The owner said ot was hunted out there is nothing there and it has been hammered over the years. Kinda discouraged but my and a friend went and wow the most civil war bullets i found in 1 day. A good white patina all these were dropped but i did damage one of them with shovel. Just to be able to pick and object up from that time is awesome and kinda personal. I know some ppl could care less about the history of this great country but knowing you have a piece of history during the time made this country is awesome.Metal detectong is a wonderful hobby please respect the history that it uncovers

    A Dang good day , beautiful , white powdery looking patina , I love the Enfield . What type of Base does it have ?
    &
    The other 3 ringers what base types are on them if you don't mind.?

    It can be tough getting that many 'Drop's or fired CW bullets ' in the Western Theater ..Heck in Va / E Theater as well so I hear.

    If weather is decent , ill hunt & walk for 6 + hours tomorrow & just 1 CW Bullet will make my day.
    Good luck in the future.

    Tough finding Southern bullets because most of them found their targets and are in graves!

    I don't take it as boasting , a Man likes to show off the rewards of his hard work .

    Those GS buttons are out there , they are just hiding really good.

    That's a nice pistol bullet as well , "think" I only have dug 1 of that type & that was 20 years ago. 'Hence "I Think". Or ? could it be carved on ?

    As for the 'Digger Ding ' OH THE HORROR !!!!!! 'For Real' I been known to re-bury them Deep'.
