    My First Confederate Buckle!!!!!!!!!WOOOOHOOO!

    I'm going to start by telling the story from today:

    I took off work today and my father and I decided last night that we had to try this new spot. So we drive up to check it out. It was a small yard, in a subdivision. I would say that the house was built in the early 50's....and it was suppose to be smack in the middle of a civil war camp. Well, we covered the yard pretty quickly due to its size. The only thing I found to any significance was a couple of pocket spills...with a little silver...YES!

    After a couple of hours, daddy looked at me and said "lets go back to that camp where we have been finding all that good stuff for the past month"....Not one to argue with my father, I agreed. We pulled in and I made a B-line right toward the area where I had found the confederate C.S.A button last week. Half way there I got a good signal and decided to dig...mind you, I had literally walked about 50 yards from my truck....

    So, I turned the plug of soil over and that's when I could see the back of the plate, in the hole, with the hooks facing up. I called to my dad and told him that I had found a belt plate, but didn't know what yet. He came walking over about the time that I had recovered the plate and flipped it over to see a beautiful C.S.A. on the front of it.....BOY DID I DO A HAPPY DANCE....AND YELL...AND DANCE...AND YELL...AND STOMP...AND OH MY GOODNESS..AND SO ON...!

    Here is my first confederate buckle...

    I have been relic hunting in Virginia for over 16 years. And never found one of those.
    What an awesome find. I would'en sell that Confederate Buckle for love or money, well, money anyway
    If she was blond and 21, well we won't go there.
    Seriously, Great find, I would say BANNER.

    Hey thanks...I am 26 years old, but I've been detecting with my dad for as long as I can remember....Like you, he has never found one....as well as a lot of other folks I know that have detected for years. I know that I am very lucky....and well, my wife is 22 and blonde, so I don't think I will get rid of it anytime soon...

    Thanks for the Banner nomination!
