    Some recent civil war finds

    Hey there fellow detectorinos. Found some civil war lead and other camp goodies near Harpers Ferry. This is the third lantern top I have found. It doesn't show well but the button is a general service kepi or cuff eagle button. The other button is a flat button that says double gilt on it. Maybe that's why there is some left on it. The triangle and other thing are typical knapsack parts. Also found a Williams cleaner bullet--the one with the little broken tab coming out of it. The Sharps I think is actually a Richmond labs style Sharps. I found it doing one of my habits of scanning fallen trees roots and the holes they fell out of. Whats odd is I got a strong iron signal at the end of the roots. I kicked some dirt away and there that perfect Sharps sat (second bullet from left). I scanned again with the chunk of dirt out and still got iron, but the bullet signal was there as well.
