    Cane Field Bandits--ROUND TWO!

    Hello All,

    Met up with Shanegalang this morning to go on a date with a great cane field. On the way, we made a quick detour, dropped Bernard Bonnier off and got hunting. We did pretty well today. No military buttons this time, but we did make some nice finds. Took a break midday and ate a bowl of gumbo at a good restaurant. Knew it would be good when the waitress asked if we wanted some File for it.


    Got back at it and got a phone call from the man who leases another 8,000 acres with a Green Light.

    Here's a little video to get you in the mood. 8)



    So...back to the hunt... Here are a couple of the shots from the field. First off, a dropped three-ringer:

    Next, a V nickel I dug (1892):

    This is the fourth nickel from that area. In fact, except for Shane's Half Real, every coin has been a nickel (Silver Jefferson, two V nickels, and a Shield). Seems like folks only carried nickels in their pockets.

    It has been yet another long evening cleaning finds. Once again, the number of targets in my pouch were pretty incredible to me at the end of the day:

    First off, here's the GawGag. Camp lead and pack studs, mainly.

    Two more recent items we found while briefly exploring a new spot on the new land. A Louisiana Tax
    Token from the 30s and a Catholic Medallion.

    Great pottery and a clay marble eyeballed in the field:

    CW bullets, heel plates, etc. The small piece of carved lead is an interesting shape. Please me know if you have any ideas about that one. The .54 cal round ball in the center has a terrific sprue on it. Big mold, Big splash. The lead piece at the left gave me a heart attack. I saw a white disc, and thought Two Reales or Silver Quarter. No design at all. Early cast brass nail. (Shipbuilding?) Good stuff.

    And the buttons, coin, etc. After 20 years with no watch winder, I was lucky enough to get my second watch key in two hunts. The little cuff button at the top is a real beauty, and the photo doesn't do it justice. The red colored disc with the design in the center bottom of the photo is interesting. No clue on the ID. It appears to have a small paste jewel in the center, and the rim of it is heavily gold gilded. Single wire attachment on the back...but it could be a busted and stretched out shank, so maybe a button too.

    Keep hunting those Colonial fields in LA. The pottery is a great sign for early finds in the area. Soon you will be digging old Gaw Gag and then you will be in the zone.

    nice finds,
    that paticular heel plate is pretty hard to find. with all those big tracts of land, your going to need alot of gumbo to keep your energy up.

    So much land, so little time BB!! More nice finds including a nickel a trip seems like. The carved (shaped) piece of lead looks like a phoenix, thunderbird , or an eagle before it was discarded or broken. Just a guess. Get back out there!! HH, Quindy.

    BB,
    You guys have been knocking it dead out there. Some fantastic relics. I have a heel plate like the star one you have there.
    Congrats on those relics that seem to have a personal touch added to them.
    I love your new avatar. Hilarious!
    I gotta ask.........what is "File" for your gumbo mean? I hope she didn't mean "flies".
    Great post,
    Doug

    Looks like you had a heck of a hunt BB.

    Is that long piece of lead possibly a confederate "Whitworth" bullet? I can't tell from the angle of view of your pic.

    Re: Cane Field Bandits--ROUND TWO!

    First off someone asked what "file" is. It is file' (fee lay), actually ground sassafras root. A good bowl of gumbo is just not the same with out it, it has a slight taste but basically thickens the gumbo up a bit. Here's a couple of pictures of some of my finds. I love the big square cut brass nail and oil lantern top. it still had the little gear in it. The thimble was in pretty good shape. The piece of china has a good mark on it, maybe someone can identify the age. Cheers, Shane
