    That is one heck of a lot of drops! They must have set up a bullet making site there and had to go off and leave it unexpectedly. Any idea of a battle near there? Monty

    Re: MY TOTAL 3 RINGERS ,105 FROM THE SAME SPOT

    The very 1st day I got my metal detector, Christmas day 1985, I found 120 3 ringers & a sword scabbard hilt & tip & 4 percussion caps all in my parent's front yard......My neighbor's house was used during both battles of Bull Run as a field hospital & shown on all of the old battle maps of the area....it also shows where the New York troops were stationed in our yard for 72 hrs during a rain storm...over the years we have dug several hundred bullets & buttons in one small area...Anytime I make the trip up, I can go md & find more too.Ground action brings the deeper ones up year after year.

    That explains a lot. A 72 hour lay over isn't much time to put things in order when a battle is brewing. You are very lucky to have such a site. Many of us woud give our left...... uh...,leg to have a site like that. Thanks for sharing. Monty

    Those are some great finds and there are probably a ton more of those 3 ringers there. Remember that Culpeper changed hands either 26, or 27 times during the CW, so it saw plenty of action.

    Nice job, Culpepper is full of campsites from both sides, when I lived in the area Culpepper was my favorite location to dig.

    3 ringers are union, check the base for a 'star', means they were made from the old star armoury in Wash DC, supplied army of the Potomac.
