    WAR OF 1812 ARTILLERY PLATE! >>UPDATE PHOTO AFTER CLEANING<<

    The first 2 hrs of my hunt were spent not finding a cellar hole from a plat map. I gave up and went back to my well hunted favorite site an early American gone by the time my 1902 map was made. After getting bored hunting the same old spot I remembered a stone pile at the site I had skimmed over last year and found a few iron buckles and had decided it was a shed or something. I put my sniper coil on and hit the rectangular stone pile again. All the first hits were iron stove parts and I thought maybe this was a home after all. My next hit was big and I figured just another stove piece but the target id was locked on copper so I had to dig and boom happy dance! War of 1812 artillery plate!

    Banner!! Much rarer than a CSA plate. Rarer than a Georgia plate. As rare as an 1851 Mississippi pattern plate. It doesn't get much better than that.

    Can't do any harm trying.

    I know very little about this sort of US find, but I know I would be pleased with it & it looks great!
