    Mighty.. It showed at 2", I know that my driveway is 3"-4" deep so that is why I thought penny especially with the 74 VDI. Once I cleaned out the hole a little more and was able to get more of the coil closer to the target that is when I got the overload.

    Re: Driveway find, NOT what you might think.

    Thanks everyone for your support. I usually tend to lurk on the site and rarely post my finds. I have been seriously detecting for a couple of years.

    While we tend to be a poor state monetarily, we are rich in history. Getting outside is half the fun. I have learned a lot about our local history and have a lot more to learn. Just getting permission is hard; people are protective of their property.

    Again thanks for the comments and Happy Hunting or as we say it in the South "Happy Hunt’n"

    Do you realize that the vast majority of us will never find one of those in our entire lifetime? Amazing! In fact it's EXCELLENT (wringing hands)! Monty

    sekypaleo. Apparently I do NOT know what I have laying on my desk.
    What am I missing that makes this a 4-5K find. I know some CW relics are valuable but what is special about this one?

    I am going to do some research on my land and trace the ownership on it. I might find an owner who served in the Civil War. This would be pure speculation and would depend on how many people lived on and owned this place before me.

    looks to me to be a Confederate plate... you probably have to take pic of back for the more knowledgeable to tell you exactly what it is.. DID a quick research an found one similar to yours sold for 2,500.00 link is here http://www.jsmosby.com/cgi-bin/Displ...p?Cat=6&Sub=16 very last photo on page

    Re: Driveway find, NOT what you might think.

    Creeper... I just looked and it appears to be a
    "Solid-cast “regulation” style. Dimensions: 53x84mm. Similar to Mullinax plate 126"

    It is hollow and does not have the hooks on the back, but you can see where they were attached.

    I did a quick search and cannot find one listed for sale or at least one that has a price. My wife asked me how much it was worth when I dug it, told her maybe a $100 or so. I had NO idea.

    The true value of a find, is the value the individual places on it.

    Re: Driveway find, NOT what you might think.

    Read your post..so I did another real quick search found this "price guide'.. list the belt buckle you described at 8.500.00 there is the link I hope it work so you can see it.. http://issuu.com/dreamedia/docs/catalog151_civil_war
    Note: I just went back an read the whole description..the price is for a non dug buckle... but I would think it's still in the thousands being dug... you might want to send front an back pics to a collector... or maybe a back photo here an I'm sure someone will know a fair value for it...

    one more thing this catalog was published april 23rd 2010 so the price is current

    Wetpaint,

    What city in MS do you live in? You might be on an assembly area for a civil war battle or maybe a hospital site or some other campsite. I will post some research for you if you tell me what city you live in.

    Re: Driveway find, NOT what you might think.

    I do about three months worth of research on an area before I ever pick up my metal detector. Northern MS was traveled heavily by troops moving east......many TEXAS units were in MS. I learned long ago about the value of searching a 25 mile radius around a major civil war battle. My years in the ARMY as an F.O. helped with map reading. There is a reason you found that CS buckle in your driveway, you might be right on top of something.

    I located a Second Seminole War fort from 1837 in a guys back yard two years ago. You just never know WHERE history is. I will post some research for you.
