    U.S. PLATE, 1746 Pillar Reale, VIRGINIA & MASS. BUTTONS....ALL FROM NEW CAMPSITE

    What's up TNet. Jeff (UmrGolf2000) and I got out to do our daily digging yesterday and today and we secured permission at a new site which ended up being a AWESOME untouched Civil War Campsite!!! We dug some really amazing stuff and unbelievable quantities.....we're still pretty light-headed from the whole experience and this goes down as one of our best hunts this year! We hope y'all enjoy them!! Well enough talking....onto the photos! We have a few videos too

    The button in the video ended up being the Massachusetts button

    What an amazing experience Josh.. Probably a once in a lifetime thing to dig that many military relics along with a couple nice coins.. 2010 has been one we'll remember for quite sometime

    Re: U.S. PLATE, 1746 Pillar Reale, VIRGINIA & MASS. BUTTONS....ALL FROM NEW CAMPSITE

    Definitely one of the best collection of button finds I've seen posted on T-Net in my 2 yrs. here. Would like to see the back of the unknown relic. Actually looks like it could be a rosette. I think I have actually seen the cuff button depicted somewhere. Interesting. Congratulations. "THE Hogge"

    Sentinal that was one of the most well put together post of a civil War relics hunt I have ever seen here on T-NET !! The finds alone are mind boggling and BANNER worthy! To find an unhunted civil war camp site on an intown lot ! PRICELESS !!!!!! The Pic of the ornate sash buckles and keepies is my favorite !! If I could vote twice for BANNER I would !! My vote is in !! MaineRelic
