    War of 1812 Crumpton Artillery Corps Button, 1895-S Barber Half Dollar & more!

    Hey Guys, well I got back out to one of my new field sites this past weekend and was planning on trying to find some hot spots around it. This field sits not far from the

    Battle of Burnt Chimneys and was all part of the Peninsular/Seven Days Campaigns. My first good signal turned out to be a Confederate Gardner (2-Ringer) which made me

    happy as it was the first Civil War relic of the site. I was happy with it and just settling into the hunt when I was suddenly overtaken by a MASSIVE storm. The wind

    started blowing 40-50 mph snapping tree limbs, sending a TON of this Sandy SE Virginia soil into the air and generally Downpouring on top of me! I hauled tail back to the

    truck to wait it out and as ominous as it was, it literally passed in about 15 minutes and with no more storms in site according to the weather radar on my phone, I hopped

    back out of the truck to blue skies and sunshine. As I walked back onto the field, there hanging gloriously above me

    was one of the coolest rainbows I’ve ever seen stretching all the way across the field!

    I Quickly ran over there and detected but No Joy, NO POT OF GOLD!? But it was very cool and I took it as a sign of some good things to come.

    In front of this field is an 1850s era house that I’ve also got permission to hunt and had produced the Barber Half on my last hunt . I ended up digging a Largie out

    of the yard and between the housesite and the field, I ended the day with a nice full pouch including my last find of the day, which was a Beautiful Early 1800’s Crumpton

    Artillery Corps Button! Here’s my finds:

    Thanks Mike....Yeah, the "grunting" was due to the fact I pulled my back muscle the night before and was REALLY sore...that and the frustration trying to film with a camera phone, a pain sometimes :P

    Great finds as always. Hope your back gets better.

    and I have to hand it to you, you have great eye for photography in my book. I don't know if the Fresh out of the Pouch pic was dumped or arranged like that, but its my favorite pic of this post. Well done
