    Our project will most likely continue this coming spring/summer contingent on favorable conditions...stay tuned.
    Yeah, waiting on gator mating season to make it interesting...LOL

    My hunting buddy and I revisited the Seminole Indian War site yesterday for a couple of hours and found two musket balls...one had been fired thus deformed and one dropped and in perfect condition.

    The water level had receded so we thought we would give it a try. We found several "what'sits" that rang up as iron but were so encrusted that we couldn't determine what they really were but we saved them anyway. I also found a modern penny and a 1965 quarter...big deal eh?

    We were in knee deep water for the most part but the musket balls found were somewhat closer to the shore line in ankle deep water.

    We did see 2 gators who fortunately behaved themselves and kept their distance!

    The search continues....

    I think the period ring is still being made today and sold at cheap silver kiosks in the malls. It may be ca. 1985-date unfortunately.

    Thanks for the note. I realize anyone can easily be wrong on such things and since we couldn't properly ID it immediately, we researched period jewelry in several sources and consulted others more knowledgeable in this area than we were and all indications pointed toward this being an authentic period ring. Admittedly, we could still be wrong but I really don't think so. The photo above doesn't do it proper justice for authentication purposes I'm afraid.

    Soldier on...

    I am the one with the scary hand that found the Ring, Bayonet and Anchor and researched the ring. The two experts I sent photos agreed that it was period. Naturally they could not be 100 percent certain. It was found at the same depth and only feet away from the other objects.

    This man was an invaluable member of the team. An excellent detectorist, a dedicated teammate and a loyal friend. Gary made an unsurpassed contribution to this whole effort.
    Thanks buddy!

    Great finds I loved your story, definitely a banner and then some! Wild Gator meat is still my favorite of every type that I've ever eaten so far. I love the feeling that comes with the flavor when eating a great carnivore like a wild gator even though I've been gator starved this winter in Arizona
