    Confederate reunion medal UPDATE

    Some of you might remember the United Confederate Veterans reunion medal owned by Capt Sam Webb that I found last year. You know, the one that won me Garrett's find of the month. The one I won't shut up about. LOL. No? Well, here's a refresher: http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.p...tml#msg2404354

    Anyways, the completed medal is supposed to be a two piece medal, like this example
    http://www.uncledaveys.com/ucv1927a.jpg

    Guess what I just found tonight? Yep, the top piece. I scratched up the back something awful, but the front is in good shape. And you can't really blame me for scratching it, as it was literally embedded in a cedar root.

    !!

    You can see where I totally slashed the back of it . Oh well, at least the front is okay. I had a really good day out, including two of my better buckles and some other random cool things. I don't know what a lot of them are, so feel free to chime in if you see something neat and want a closeup of anything. And yes, I know that's a nickel, smart alecs hahah.

    Thanks for looking! I almost went totlotting, but my wife told me I should stick around the farm, and I'm SO glad I did

    Amazing! I dug a half badge myself last year.
    I could never find the other half. Congratulations!

    Fantastic find! I know you were pretty happy to find the other piece to that medal. Discovering these types of objects that have historical meaning to them is one of the best parts of this hobby! Great job!!

    Scratched or not, thats one terrific find AGAIN! WOOOOHOOOOO,
    When you feel down because you didnít
    get what you want, just sit tight and
    be happy, because God is thinking of
    something better to give you.
