    Entire US Cartridge Box!! Both plates bullets *UPDATE* the rest from the hole!!

    Still working my good spot... approached it from a different angle... I didn't have as much time to dig as I would have liked ended up talking to the landowner for a while... so... 1/3 of the way in with nothing to show for it except a couple new bullets and one flat button.. I get a power hit.. jumping all over... really good and crappy iron mixed in. Getting close to dark... and past my time to be home... I almost left it for next time but decided to make it the last hole and then head out... I dug down about 6" or so and then switch to the pinpointer... mainly for the light and it was a constant tone all over the bottom of the hole... so now.. I'm thinking big chunk of iron!! well.. the next deep scoop was loaded with 3 ringers!! I start widening the hole.. and pulling up two hands of dirt at a time and piling it up.. ended up being the remains of a dropped/tossed cartridge box!! Dug the Box Plate, Eagle Plate, a couple of rivets and 17 3 ringers!!! I cleaned out the hole and there was a massive piece of iron below it... I'll go back and just dig the whole area out now, trash pit maybe The ironic part is I dug a bunch of relics within 100' of this 3 years ago but this area was so over grown it was not huntable... It's late... I'm starving.. so I'll post cleaned up pics later...



    Enjoy!!

    April 8th - I had a little time to go back out and dig out somemore of the hole.. I did get a few more 3 ringers deeper and a little off to the right of the rest. I pulled as much of the iron out as I could.. seems like trashpit iron to me but No idea what it is.. I've seen the circle piece of iron before.. the rest was pretty rotted so any ideas please post them!!! I circled out into the woods and dug a nice eagle button and one lone dropped 3 ringer before the rain got to heavy!

    If you won't dance the Monkey Dance, then I will. Right now, in front of the computer's monitor. You have to go back and dig more. At least to see if you find any of the leather.
    Sick, sick find.

    Re: Entire US Cartridge Box!! Both plates, bullets and some rivets

    The guy who taught me everything I know about detecting (who lives in Virginia) found a whole box this spring with both plates. No bullets in it though.

    That is one heck of a find.

    Thanks!.... How many rivets and roller buckles did he find?? I have found example with various amounts.. 2 to8 rivets.. 1 or 2 rollers.. and other brass depending on if the percussion portion was lost to? I guess I'll figure out more tomorrow afternoon ;-) I'm envisioning a big hole!!!

    I think there were four rivets, but I don't remember him mentioning the roller buckles. Congratulations on that incredible find. How many plates from that spot now?
