    Re: This forum is dead

    Samuel, well... how many Civil War veterans were there? Add to this the ability for a "belt" to be worn to hold up a person's britches. Many belts have been worn through the years. This was a belt buckle. Not uncommon once upon a time... but now exceedingly rare. Awesome find. Such a buckle could be almost anywhere when the belt was eventually lost or discarded. There are so few and these buckles are highly sought after. The location can be easily explained away by the probability of a civil war vet. having lived there for a spell. Wonder what else could be there in the area? One mans trash from the 1870's or 80's is another mans treasure now.

    Re: This forum is dead

    I finally got brave enough to start digging the lower tones like pull tabs and nickels if they appear to have a little depth and i found a nickel from 49 from my yard. Not that thats anything other then 5 cents but it was nice to know that i could dig something with that sound and crosshair pattern that wasnt a pull tab. I just cant figure out if there just isnt any silver in my yard or if im not getting enough depth. I have found wheats from 1927 all the way up to modern day pennys. Also found dimes as old as 65 thru the 70's. Also quarters. But by gosh if i cannot find a silver to save my life. Maybe i cant get deep enough with the factory pattern program, but i wouldnt think they would be much deeper than the wheats and most of them have been around 6 inches

    one thing I found with my etrac, if it's not making a nice tone, it's just not there. i wouldn't worry about not finding silver in your yard, try some other places. look for places off the beaten path. I drive up and down country roads and look for the roads that are maybe a dead end with old houses, and start asking for permission to md. good luck

    Re: This forum is dead

    I have permission to detect hundreds of old homesteads in the country around here, and i have tried a couple. One thing i have noticed is that they are terribly trashy. As far as iron goes, even places that are just fields with no reminince of the old house have lots of trash signals in the ground. I just need to get out there and get more time on it i guess. Thanks

    I don't know why there aren't more Kansas people in TNet. You can't swing a cat in the Friendly Metal Detecting Forum without hitting a Kansas hunter.

    I know there are at least 10 people from Wichita alone in that forum. I discovered the FMDF long before I found TNet.
