    SOME Of My Better Relics For 2017 :D

    Although none of this is jaw dropping/over the top type stuff I had a lot of fun in 2017 diggin some new sites around the county and in 2 other counties around me.


    Some of this was shown in past "finds" post/some maybe not.


    A few of the sites I'll be going back to this spring and we have some new ones in the works for the coming season too


    Hope you'all had a good year and show some of your best finds too


    All period to CW era +/- (1840s - 1870s) including a couple nice CW pieces found on old home sites where soldiers lived.


    I like the lead-back bridal rossett (star) as it reminds me of a Mississippi or Texas piece and also the crossed Cavalry swords as well as the sword hanger swivel


    Crotal Bell is a nice 1840s piece with the horse and makers mark too

    Very cool I like all of it. Crotal bells are neat. My collection is about 3 dozen now. Love finding them.

    Great finds. I'm still looking for my first crotal bell. Good luck with more finds this spring.......whenever that may be! Old man winter wants to stick around for a few more months I think.

    Like that cavalry hat pin. Also the star rosette. Found one of those myself at an old house site. Thinking about getting out tomorrow, see if the woods is thawed.
